Why are we here? What is love? Is there a loch ness monster? Does God send text messages?

These are the kinds of questions Horatio Cotton, aka Bobby, asks in New York Times bestseller Rick Springfield's debut novel, Magnificent Vibration .

After stealing a mysterious self-help book called Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purpose from a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scrawled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God. This launches Bobby on an unlikely quest, serendipitously accompanied by a breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp travel companion named Alice. Together the pair sets out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation-and possibly save the planet.

By turns hilarious, poignant, over-the-top, and deeply meaningful, Magnificent Vibration is a highly original novel about the biggest questions one man-or mankind-has ever asked.

Such an obscure, interesting and easy read. I like the unique perspective.

"Why are we here? What is love? Is there a Loch Ness monster? Does God send text messages?" These four lines, and "Jessie's Girl," were about all I had to go on before cracking open Rick Springfield's debut fiction novel. It follows an early thirties, recently divorced, recovering slacker as he ponders his existence. It leads him on a quest that ends up with a 1-800 hotline to God, a recently "freed" nun, and a date with the Loch Ness monster. While it does take a little time to pick up, and it can be somewhat shocking at points, it was a thoroughly enjoyable read, and once I got hooked, I couldn't put it down. The book has a positive message at the end, and is easily accessible for all walks of life. I know I'll be awaiting Rick's next effort!

It was like a Mitch Albom book, but, I really enjoyed it. It was sweet and 'out there' and funny and sad. Rick is a great writer, I must say! Bring on the next novel!!
