The absolute best thing about this book: It's a young adult book that doesn't talk down to its readers.
Plus, the story is wonderful.

This is one of the very best books i've read, it kept me guessing on what would happen next!!!! i think just about everyone can relate to josh's story!

The Gospel According to Larry is a really good book. I couldn't understand the book if it was a true or if it was made up. I picked this book of the shelf at my school library. I had to read this book for a school book report. It was a good book to do a book report on. I would requet this book for teenagers. I am 13 years old.

This was a winderful book. I have never read anything quite like it. It has opened my eyes to the hold that consumerism has on us. I cant wait to read the next one. (is this a true story, the begining confused me, meeting in a supermarket?)

I think that this was a GREAT book and that all teens should read it . It really helped open my eyes to the world that we're living in today. I really didn't realize how much consumerism is currupting the lives of teens. I can't wait to read the Vote for Larry book!

I thought that the book was wounderful! I read the book in two hours and really felt inspired. Although reading a book doesn't do anyone anygood, but by following what Janet Tashjian (author) has to say. I was confused if this was a true story or made up. I would also like to know Janet Tashjian's Email address!

The Gospel According To Larry and Vote For Larry are well written books. They really make you more aware of what our government and the corporations are trying to pull. To all readers, if you're of age, don't forget to vote! The book is written in such a way that it's hard to tell if it's fact or fiction; however if you read Vote For Larry you'll see that it is, in fact, fiction. This does not detract from the awesome message of the story though. It's inspiring. A third book is in the makes too. Good luck and happy reading to all.

I love this book! I hate reading, but I had to find a book for my language arts class and just happened to pick this one up and I'm so glad I did! It's the best book I ever read!
