Hyperbole is the most entertaining book I have read in a long time.

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

The novel "Hyperbole" by Michigan-based author Ryan Parmenter is getting more and more rave reviews like these:

"Hyperbole is the most entertaining book I have read in a long time."

"[T]his was the most I've ever laughed out loud while reading a book in my entire life."

"One of the funniest books I've ever read."

The story follows a grumpy, disillusioned office worker in a United States where domestic terrorists are the biggest threat. With over 75% of reviewers giving it 5-star reviews, the book is resonating with readers.

One five-star review states, "The story is suspenseful and fast, but the characters are what makes this read so enjoyable." Another agrees: "The characters are unique, vulgar, and highly memorable."

Multiple reviews have drawn comparisons between Parmenter's work and that of well-known satirists, noting "a style reminiscent of the best Chuck Palahniuk novels" and that "the not always pretty detail of the world reminded me of Vonnegut."

Other readers praised the combination of elements in the story. "This book was witty, dark, disturbing, believable, twisted and very imaginative all rolled into one book!" Multiple reviewers commented, "I didn't want it to end."

Parmenter couldn't be more pleased. "I'm so glad to see the amazing feedback from readers who enjoy the book," he said. "As a first-time author and publisher, I wasn't sure what the reaction would be. So far, it's overwhelmingly positive."

Readers should know that the themes and language in the book are intended for mature audiences only. "It may be a comedy," said Parmenter, "but it's an extremely dark one."
