EDITORIAL REVIEWS:

“Any novel whose subtitle proclaims it “A Humorous Adventure Novel” had best live up to its billing early.I’m laughing — and happy to report that Bill Stephens is more than able in “¡Vámonos! A Humorous Adventure Novel,” a book that might be described as Cervantes meets Kerouac — if Don Quixote and Sancho Panza had Harley-Davidsons.”. Hearst San Antonio Express News

“Bill Stephen’s Vámonos! takes a wry and realistic look at human nature and the result is fun, lively, innovative, and highly entertaining. Instead of editorial comment on the character’s foibles, the various critters do the job, and the result is often hilarious and deeply revealing. Though the protagonists get themselves into heaps of trouble, the general tone is upbeat throughout, often left me laughing out loud. I recommend ¡Vámonos! in the highest terms.” Florence Weinberg, Ph.d Author of The Storks of Caridad and Unrest in Eden

“From a literary standpoint, Vámonos! is a book about good. evil, redemption, and the human condition, and it handles those elements with grace, intelligence, and wit. Remarkably, it also does something that literary novels rarely do: while accurately capturing the zeitgeist of today’s Mexico, it delivers the kind of edge-of-the-seat entertainment usually found only in plot driven thrillers. Have you ever wondered what it might be like to ride a Harley, or maybe to ride one in Mexico? Vámonos! brings you those experiences, virtually in 3D, with as much excitement as anybody needs, and does so with close to zero predictability. And there is enough humor to keep you smiling through even the most suspenseful scenes. The ending is especially satisfying: not only do the main characters achieve redemption but so do readers, most of whom will not be able to finish the book without a surge of optimism and a renewed enthusiasm for their own slog through this veil of tears.” Jim Peyton author of The Vampires of Bustamonte

“I think the comparison to Christopher Moore and Carl Hiaasen is a good one. I’ve read several of their books. In fact, I enjoy listening to these types of books and think Vámonos! is perfect for the audiobook format. It’s funny with a charming, self-deprecating hero. It reminds me of a modern day Don Quixote. And the dialogue and situational comedy make it a great candidate for film.” Diana Lopez author of Confetti G
