Danny goes to Idaho, he can make anything sound like a truly amazing adventure. I have read all his books and therefor found this one far too short. And the wrighting too big, I felt like a child. Jan 07, Lexi rated it liked it Shelves: This is a "Quick Reads" book, meaning it's only a little over a hundred pages of large print.
It definitely lived up to the "quick" part, but was still an enjoyably funny little short story. Aug 16, Lauren rated it liked it. A quick read in typical Wallace style. Jun 20, Becky rated it it was amazing. May 01, Alison rated it liked it. It was funny and Danny has a very easy writing style which flowed well and drew me into the story.

Perhaps on a different day it might have been different but not this time. Feb 29, Danielle Lemon rated it liked it. This book is a light quick read - the "foreigner in Smalltown USA" theme lasts just long enough to be endearing, not tiresome.

As an author, Wallace's bestselling books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. He began writing reviews for video game magazines at the age of 13 for school work exper Daniel Frederick Wallace is a British filmmaker, comedian, writer, actor, and presenter of radio and television.
He began writing reviews for video game magazines at the age of 13 for school work experience: At 18 he started writing comedy, mainly through the magazine Comedy Review. He specialised in radio production at the University of Westminster. At 22, he became a BBC producer. In , Wallace challenged comedian Dave Gorman, who at the time was his flatmate, to find 54 other people called Dave Gorman "one for every card in the deck, including the Jokers". A BBC series, also co-written and co-produced by Wallace, followed, as did a book, written by both men.
In , Wallace's book Join Me was published. The book explains how he "accidentally started a 'cult'" called Join Me. The movement would go global, with each member committing to undertaking one random act of kindness for a stranger every Friday "Good Fridays". Tens of thousands joined. Join Me celebrates "Karmageddon 10" in December Traditionally, hundreds of members travel to London for the meet-up and undertake good deeds for strangers, with Wallace present.
The movement is now generally referred to as the "Karma Army", although members are still typically "Joinees". He became a minor celebrity in Belgium whilst on his quest for Joinees. Wallace next wrote a short book called Random Acts of Kindness: In it, he describes how he spent six months "saying Yes where once I would have said No", to make his life more interesting and positive. In this book he shows the tribulations and mischief that he got up to while he said yes to any question or proposal. The book was described as "one of those rare books that actually has the potential to change your life" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian and as "a fascinating book and a fascinating experiment" by David Letterman.
