Russell Fink is twenty-six years old and determined to salvage a job he hates so he can finally move out of his parents’ house for good. He's convinced he gave his twin sister cancer when they were nine years old. And his crazy fiancée refuses to accept the fact that their engagement really is over. Then Sonny, his allegedly clairvoyant basset hound, is found murdered. The ensuing amateur investigation forces Russell to confront several things at once—the enormity of his family's dysfunction, the guy stalking his family, and his long-buried feelings for a most peculiar love interest. At its heart, My Name Is Russell Fink is a comedy, with sharp dialogue, characters steeped in authenticity, romance, suspense, and fresh humor. With a postmodern style similar to Nick Hornby and Douglas Coupland, the author explores reconciliation, forgiveness, and faith in the midst of tragedy. No amount of neurosis or dysfunction can derail God's redemptive purposes. Download and start listening now!

    " Fabulous book. Loved loved the writing style and the humor. Loved the message without being preachy. Need more from this author!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy B | 2/5/2014

    " This book was a little weird. But since I'm not picky I rated that I like it! But he has a clairvoyant dog.....so what more do you need really? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/22/2014

    " refreshing, quirky read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn Lopez | 1/21/2014

    " This was one of the many FREE books I've downloaded onto my Kindle. I actually really liked this book (although only 3 stars because the writing although funny, was hard to follow at times). I recommended this book to my sister because I thought it was funny and she could relate to the main character's outlook on life. If you have a Kindle...definitely download. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 George Angus | 1/19/2014

    " Frustratingly not my cup o' tea "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 1/13/2014

    " Just could NOT get into this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie Brown | 1/6/2014

    " Fink is the man. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vicki | 1/2/2014

    " I wonder why I bought this book for my Kindle. I must have been sleepy or something. Anyway, it was a fast read and fairly boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheen | 12/25/2013

    " This was wacky and well-written. The story was a bit loose, however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora | 12/19/2013

    " Great book about life and the challenges that some people face. Also a good reminder of what faith can do when you least expect it. Wish the dog would have had a bigger part in the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominique | 11/6/2013

    " A little lad lit to lighten my load. Russell is an average guy in a boring job and evermore boring things happen to him. This book was amusing at times, but, eh. Meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/6/2013

    " Interesting book about a young man and all his hangups. It took me longer to get through that it should, but the book was enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 10/13/2013

    " Given the free status of this book on the Kindle and the religious slant of the publisher, I thought this book would have been a waste of time; however, I enjoyed the book and found myself returning to see how Russell turns out in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brent | 5/31/2013

    " What a great book! Funny, touching, strange, intelligent. All surprises for a "Christian" book. I would have loved this book even if I didn't know the author! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 1/28/2013

    " I had read good reviews on this. I started to quit reading it and then told my son some of the stuff and thought, "Well, that is pretty funny," so I kept going. I quit again. There are parts of this book that are funny -- but I found it annoying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iris | 11/25/2012

    " This took me a while to get into but I actually enjoyed it in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peggy | 8/1/2012

    " funny, odd, good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Graham | 5/20/2012

    " Really funny, with surprising twist and turns, bogged down a little bit at one point, but mostly a good read. Fink is a loveable loser. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 4/14/2012

    " Too many stories and no real plot, it was kinda lame but I found some parts funny "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pegg | 3/22/2012

    " I loved this story! It's quirky and different and a great read to pull for the underdog. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Byron | 3/18/2012

    " A guy at our church actually wrote this. Got it for Christmas. "

    " Ok for a freebie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 4/11/2011

    " Snyder's first novel has most of the qualities of his second ("Return Policy") without being quite so coherent or convincing. Glad I read it, but can't recommend so highly as the second book. I look forward to reading his work as he continues to mature. "

    " I read about 10% of this, supposedly humorous, book and found nothing to even smile about, much have a good laugh. Since I did not finish it, I can't say others would not enjoy it but I need to be better entertained. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 8/16/2010

    " I absolutely could not get into this book so I am putting it aside (actually deleting it from my Kindle). So many books to read - so little time! "
