    "I would definitely recommend purchasing this book. This book is engaging and the characters are believable and realistic. I bought it to get a few laughs, but I was surprised to see how good this book actually is."

    "Not even gonna lie... the cover art caught my attention and I'm so glad it did! This is one of the most smartly written novels I've read in a long time. For such a strange and lighthearted storyline, you really do feel connected to the characters and find yourself invested in the whole story. Highly recommended."

    "Allison Hawn never met a metaphor she couldn't twist in a demented way. In Life is A Circus Run by a Platypus, Hawn tells in short fables, stories that provide insight on life and how to, and not to handle it. Zany characters and zany situations abound. Like Marmite, Life is A Circus Run by a Platypus is an acquired taste or a divisive taste. You might howl with laughter, or the constant riffing on metaphor and symbolism might be too much. "

    "The fiction involved in this story is fun and encourages your imagination. I liked the characters and thought the demon was a unique one to read about. The horror ties in well with the comedy and I think even younger teenagers would love it like I did."

    "I go back and forth about whether I like dark humor. It depends on my mood. I always like witty books, though. The wit in this book made the dark humor palatable even when I wasn't in a dark humor mood."
