REVIEW: Scenes From A Morning Drive


by Edward Hotspur

Nothing is what it seems in Edward Hotspur’s world. Inspired by the ultra-humorous author’s blog, his compilation book entitled SCENES FROM A MORNING DRIVE reads like a Lewis Carroll novel ghost-written by William Shakespeare as spoofed by Monty Python. More than just words, SCENES FROM A MORNING DRIVE is short fiction at its best.

With the weather often inspiring his moods and his esoteric musical stylings an ever constant soundtrack; Edward Hotspur waxes poetic on everything from road construction to cloud formations to office minutiae. His skillful way with words and unique perspective on love, life and laughter bring new meaning to the term “triple threat.”

Sometimes heartwarming, often tragic but always humorous SCENES FROM A MORNING DRIVE takes the scenic route through Edward Hotspur’s mind and shows you the world as you have never seen it before.

    • It’s worth it, I assure you. I’m hoping he puts one out in paperback as well. Yeah, I’m old school.

        I visited your blog and just found it interested, I didn’t mean any harm it visiting. Not trying to tell you anything else.

    • You’re welcome from the top of my head. Sadly, it’s not very impressive since it’s only 4’11” off the ground.

      March 24, 2012 at 9:29 pm

      • I’m betting your head is very impressive.

        March 24, 2012 at 10:30 pm

  4. ooh, this sounds good… I must check it out.

    • SCENES is the very definition of Awesomesauce.

  5. What is EH gonna do once his reputation precedes him? Everyone is going to want some!
    I really need to finish reading this…

    • I know what you mean. I hope he remembers all us little people once he hits the big time.

  6. You very elegantly captured what many of us struggle to describe about climbing into the passenger seat of Mr. Hotspur’s mind to ride along with him on his morning commute. Well done, H.E.

    • Thanks Sandy. Mr. Hotspur makes it easy. 🙂

  7. Good job on reviewing Hotspur’s book. It must be like trying to get a solid grasp on some of that fog he describes. And you never know what’s going to loom out of it. Don’t sweat the 4′ 11″. My Mom never topped 5′, and I’ve seen truckers step aside and say, “Sorry Ma’am.” Oh, wait. HR’s done that too. Lady Dynamite!

    March 25, 2012 at 2:23 am

    • Your comment makes me want to sing “How do you solve a problem like Maria , I mean Edward Hotspur?” And yes, many a trucker has stepped aside for me!

  8. Great review. It starts with talking into a tape recorder, right?–which sounds like a great idea, except mine would be full of “Get the bleep out of the way”, and “Got a blinker?” and “It’s 6:55 on a Monday morning; are you NOT on the way to work, cuz you sure don’t drive like it”, and very little witty or humorous blog/book material. My dream is to one day have a granny pull up next to us with windows open, when my kid is in the car with me, and say “what a cute kid” and have my little girl answer “Use your f***ing blinker!”, but she wouldn’t because she’s shy and just shakes her head when I “go off” at other drivers.
    So glad to have met HE, EH, and the whole cast of crazy (I mean that with the greatest respect) people.
    Does anyone else write “windy” comments when they feel like blogwriting but are too damn lazy? Me neither.

    • I tend to masturbate as opposed to comment when I’m feeling lazy. TomAto, tomato.
