5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Jan. 25 2011
By Fred - Published on Amazon.com
Writing in the great tradition of Mark Twain, Finley Peter Dunne (without the brogue), and James Thurber, Reynolds Dodson gives us a hilarious account of the parallel universe that we know as the "Hamptons." It is a fiction that is closer to the truth than any of the narratives the media have invented. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read Jan. 23 2011

As a year round resident of the Hamptons, I was surprised about both how much I knew and how much I didn't know about life hereabouts. In both cases every anecdote made me smile and some made me laugh out loud. I suggest all non-Hamptonites buy and read this book and not come visit us between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cockeyed Guide to the Hamptons Jan. 21 2011
By Buck - Published on Amazon.com
Just finished Ren Dodson's A Cockeyed Guide to the Hamptons and found it to be a fun filled hilarious read. While not an East Ender myself, I came away from this book with a new appreciation of how the other half lives, only to discover that they are not that much different than ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read... Jan. 17 2011
By Martha - Published on Amazon.com
Ren Dodson's take on the East End and it inhabitants is hilarious. Although very funny, his descriptions are terribly accurate. He is also very fair. He shoots at everyone and takes no prisoners. I think it is a great book and one of the funniest books I've read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Beach Reading!! April 9 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book on a recommendation from a friend, and I was not disappointed. Now mind you, I have never been to the Hamptons, but it didn't matter. I laughed out loud, including a couple of full belly laughs, while reading this at the beach. The book was a perfect compliment to the sun and sand, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. If you're looking for a light hearted book to pass some time away while indulging yourself to numerous smiles, then this book is a good candidate.
