Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Chuck P. fan. I respect the guy, no other author comes close as far as I'm concerned.
Now, I'm a bit confused with Fugitives and Refugees. I'm in Louisiana and I couldn't care less about the places to go in Portland. Recipes? Gardens? I don't think any of this belongs in a Chuck P. book.
I'm afraid that anyone mildly interested in Chuck may be completely turned off after reading this book. Imagine someone who just read Choke or Survivor last month and heard about this new book coming out. It would be a letdown, I think.
I certainly like the idea of getting into Chuck's head, but this book was just a big advertisement for the city of Portland and a few stories from Chuck.
