Comments about Kill Your Boss:
I started this book thinking it would be an average read and just something to pass the time. Oh boy was i wrong. At 350 odd pages it's short but was enough to keep me reading and managed to finish it in 2 days.
An immersive literary experience Vogue Dark, but brilliantly written Marie Claire Believable dialogue, a whip smart and cynical central character, clever reversals and an entertaining amount of bone-crunching violence help wrap up this nasty package with a pretty little bow. An entertaining, ferociously violent romp about a morally bankrupt killer trying to find his way home. Kirkus Black humor and surprise twists distinguish Kuhn's highly entertaining debut, which puts a fresh spin on the theme of the hardened criminal planning one last job. Publishers Weekly All of the testosterone-bloated wisdom of Tucker Max mixed w/the satire of American Psycho. Entertainment Weekly A serious guilty pleasure. (Well, semi-serious and semi-guilty, but definitely a pleasure.) Seattle Times Set to be the book of the summer Company Kill Your Boss has "cult classic" written all over it... fast-moving, twisty, ultraviolent... revelling in its own lack of pretension and sheer entertainment value Glasgow Herald A thrilling, jet-black comedy that crackles with action... sleek, quirky and enjoyable Sunday Mirror On highly original, entertaining movie of a book. Sometimes funny, often gripping and always keeping you on your toes, Kill Your Boss is up there with the better of the year's books Weekend Sport Smart, original The Sun Kuhn's writing is cartoonishly violent, adolescently cynical - and enormous fun Morning Star
