Charlie Nitric is an eclectic writer, whose stories will keep you entertained for hours. In his debut collection of shorts, he takes the reader on a roller coaster of hilarious life experiences.

Still very much a kid at heart, Charlie is constantly observing the world around him. Then, with the incredible imagination of a child, he plays with those experiences until the unimaginable becomes the imaginable for his readers.

Nitric presents an assorted array of eighteen colorful stories that will undoubtedly leave you wanting more. He entertains his readers with his humorous and original storytelling ability. From a good, hearty laughing fest to crying out in anticipation, readers can’t help but become completely mesmerized with whatever he puts before them.

Rich in excitement, each short story is jam-packed with entertainment that will keep you highly amused and eager to jump into the next. “LOL” is the kind of reading that forces laughter to abruptly escape your throat without warning.
Nitric’s debut is filled with writing that is astonishingly relatable (even when it is totally and completely implausible). The author always manages to illicit some emotion or another out of his readers. Whether that emotion is inspiration, frustration, belly-busting laughter, or simply joy, Nitric’s constant goal is to have his readers feel each scene right along with him.

He writes “Strive each day towards your own joy,” encouraging readers to be grateful each day for what they have in their lives. Nitric’s writing is proof that if you take in all the experiences around you and simply let yourself smile about them, life truly is an enjoyable ride. Often times, the cruise is hilarious.

From rodents to dentures to divorces to French kissing, every reader is bound to fall in love with the extremely funny tales in this book.

Hmmm. I didn't find this funny at all. I don't even think it was witty. I picked this book up purely because the title read "LOL" and the reviews claimed this book was practically awesome. I was looking forward to some knee-slappin', tears fallin', stomach hurtin' laughing! I didn't get that... AT ALL! To be honest, I "HA'd" about twice. And it wasn't even "HAHAHAHA" It was "HA" that's it. I rarely (practically never) cracked a smile. I know I can a cold hearted biaaatch sometimes, but... nevermind. Didn't like this book. It didn't make me "Laugh Out Loud" and it wasn't very funny. 

Wouldn't recommend this book.
