    1. Me and Bobby McGee is narrated by Keesey Cypher, a killer and an alcoholic, who is disappointed with life and himself. Cypher is kidnapped by two thugs, who are minions to Monte Weecel , the "bad guy". He owes them over a million dollars and is given two choices - either to die or run an errand for them involving smuggling some "goods" across the border to Mexico. His "chaperon" for the trip is a stunning femme fatale , Bobby McGee, who seems to be as messed up as him.You know, a lot of times wh [...]


    2. Me and Bobby McGee is a comedic thriller adventure.Keesey Cypher is a down on his luck, ex CIA, alcoholic gambler who finds himself lost in New Orleans the day after Fat Tuesday. Heading off to find his car, or a card game, whichever comes first, Cypher embarks on a weird, and fascinating journey in which he follows wherever life directs him.After stopping in for a drink and perhaps a card game, Cypher wakes up in a strange place with two of the fattest men he has ever seen, like "Burger Kings v [...]


    3. I first discovered this book while attending a book reading a small craft brewery in the Portland, Oregon area. The reading featured a handful of local authors (I went there specifically to see/hear Jason Gurley read a new short story.)While you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, I did judge the author as soon as he stood up to speak. I felt he was arrogant and very full of himself, especially in regards to the fact this book was going to be a movie soon. He never let you forget that [...]


    4. From that description, why wouldn’t I want to read this book? The story, told from Keesey’s point of view does deliver much humor. Every single line in the book is a testament to just how witty our main character is. However, that is also where the downfall lies for me. There is never a break from the humor and said wit quickly becomes expected and predictable. While the character is drinking as often as possible, it often makes me feel that I need to be drunk to appreciate everything that i [...]


    5. Chad Coenson's Me and Bobby McGee won the Silver Medal in the 2011 Independent Book Publisher Awards and deservedly so. Coenson's writing is fresh and innovative with a keen eye sharply focused on the biting truth of the modern mythos of the American Wild West. The reader is never quite sure where the story is going; Coenson keeps you guessing – and laughing, but along the way, you will find yourself in some pretty dark places with plenty of shady characters to occupy this seedy 21st Century l [...]


    6. Every loaded sentence was music to my eyes and I fell in instant loathe with everyone's favorite anti-hero Keesey Cypher. Every word drenched in wit and satire, fast paced as if it's all going to end terribly. In my opinion this book deserves a spot in literary history with the likes of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Rim, Jitterbug Perfume, and Naked Lunch, the four books that broke me in all the best ways as a youngster and set me on the path I still tread today. I highly recommend that you t [...]


    7. An awesome story that exposes some hilarious and tragic truths about American society and humanity itself. This book is one crazy ride with twisted characters that you hate to love, but can't seem to stop rooting for. If you're looking to appease your dark comedic side, read something that makes you think as you face some disturbing truths, or blow your mind with a fast-paced thrill then this book is for you. Definitely an original idea that almost reads like a movie script as it comes to life i [...]


    8. (Me and Bobby Mcgee) by Chad Coenson is propelled by the energy of its prose and its "hero" sarcastic, criminal Keesey Cypher is funny, criminal, and full of life. It's not necessary to be familiar with the old song to enjoy this book but it doesn't hurt either since the song is woven throughout the story.


    9. Me and Bobby McGee is great storytelling and a fun ride. The book has an original voice and potent writing. The peaks and valleys within this tale are delivered sharp and pointed. The tension was masterfully achieved in several scenes, especially the US/Mexico border scenes. Clever, dark humor filled this volume and I will gladly read Coenson’s next book see my full review, follow the link belowjakeelliotfiction/2014/07/


    10. This book is a must read. From the moment I started reading it I was hooked! It is a fast paced, action packed, and hilarious story, all in one. The main character Keesey Cypher, is awesome. You never know from one minute to the next whether you love him or hate him. I hope that this Author does more in the future and I would REALLY love to read more adventures of Keesey. There's so much more to tell! To Chad Coenson, thanks for the ride, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Keep `em comin'


    11. I laughed out loud many times and also really enjoyed the satire on American culture. I would recommend this book to anyone. Everyone will enjoy the story and characters.


    12. Brilliant! I bought several copies to give to friends and family. A biting (and hilarious) look at modern life. Highly recommend.



    13. The book is great. I am on my second read and enjoying it just as much. The book is funny but has a message about life. I strongly recommend adding Me and Bobby McGee to your summer reading list.
