“Rumors of Savages is a wickedly funny, fast-paced depiction of a journalistic quest to find a tribe of savage headhunters in the depths of the African jungles. Once I picked up this book, I couldn’t put it down, howling my way through page after page.”

“With our society so enamored with the “reality” of Reality TV, this book sheds light on the madness behind the machine. The personalities are so real, but what’s more – even though the book is labeled “fiction,” the STORY seems so plausible. THAT made it impossible to put down.”

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, and I rarely write reviews. I finished the book in a few short hours because I simply could not put it down.”
