Customer Reviews for Oaktara Publishers Heavens to Louie

Oaktara Publishers Heavens to Louie

Louie is really good at dreaming up bad ideas.

You know the type: the person you think really needs God's help, but you don't know what to do with him when he shows up at church. When Louie accidentally sabotages a Christmas pageant, he decides he needs to shape up. But every effort only creates more chaos. Is it possible for a guy like Louie to change?

Stop by Floyd's Fountain for bad coffee and worse food. Stay long enough to meet Louie, Bob, Miss Phelps, Percy the Motorcycle Bum, and the others. And discover why there's a place even for the Louies of the world.

A deep belly laugh that doesnt stopHeavens to Louie is a delightful bit of funny that will make you laugh out loud. You cant help but love Louie Lou-eye Louis and Felicia Aphrodite Phelps. Their tale of misadventure and unexpected love is one ripping great yarn. The entire novel is a wonderful whimsical joke with beautifully placed punch lines, all delivered with ease and perfect timing.Louie is the guy you see in town that makes you cringe. His life is completely messed up because he just cant seem to stop making plans that just never turn out quite right. If he wasnt such a good sport, hed be a tragic character. And Miss Phelps is the proverbial English teacher from he double toothpicks. She just needs a makeover, but not the kind anyone could predict or expect. When the two get together, the world will never be the same, not for their small town, themselves, or their friendswell not really friends. They both are somewhat outcasts, but that makes their story even more poignantand funny.Heavens to Louie is a great bit of fun that will only make you want more and more of Don Bemis writing. Here is a piece of Americana wrapped in prose that would make the great bard proudand along with that you get some Hamlet too.
