I Dream of Johnny - Juliet Madison
Source: Review copy from Escape publishing.
Getting three wishes isn't all it's cracked up to be when an unfortunate spelling error in Mandy's high-tech magic lamp changes her wish for a Greek God to a Geek God. His fashion IQ is in the negatives, he’s clingier than cling wrap, and he has a penchant for breaking into song at inappropriate moments. Before Mandy can request a replacement wish, she has to put up with him for twenty four hours, and the timing couldn’t be worse — it's her friend’s wedding day, her ex will be there, and the God of Geeks insists on coming along for the ride!
As you all know, I'm quite a lover of novella's. If they are planned right and written well then you are guaranteed to be thrown into a short termed world of fiction.
Unfortunately that is not the case with I dream of Johnny. It was flat and tired meaning my mind was wondering onto other things and more so other books. I carried on to the end though and I when I finished I sat for a long time thinking about it. The actual plot to this book is a good one, it has a lot of imagination and thought it just doesn't fit together right for me, which is a shame. I really didn't like the way in which the geek was patronisingly spoken to as if he was a child, nor did I like that he was only capable of speaking in facts to show his intelligence. I'm sure if a geek did read this they'd be really offended.
I'd still say take a chance on this to you though, like I've said the plot is good and you might think differently.
