I reviewed it on Amazon in Jan 2015...


Full disclosure. I was on a chat about my book and Michael told me about his. He sent a copy, didn't request a review, but it's so good it's going to get one whether he likes it or not, because I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The blurb concentrates on the mice straight/gay experiment side, but actually Michael has used this as a skeleton key. He unlocks the door to an honest look at the human condition and how stupidly seriously we take ourselves on occasion. His writing is a nice, easy style and the diction is of an everyday level that means the book just flows naturally. He's even got things down to the little "super-secret-spy" conversations that people have with themselves in their head occasionally. The only negative in this, was one place in which a character had to put over a concept in such detail, that it felt out of character; but the rest of the book was a breeze.

All in all, it carries the message not to get so hung up on yourself, avoid getting stuck in a rut and that, now and then, you should take the time to reset your sexual compass.
