A humor book of short stories and a few tall tales covering different topics and experiences from author Hal Adkins. There is something interesting and amusing for everyone in this book from getting run over by trains to auto racing adventures to helium intoxication. If you don't get numerous chuckles and copious guffaws, you probably don't have a pulse.

Jan 25, 2012A very funny and interesting book! It will take you on a "Magic Carpet Ride" through your life as you recall many experiences that you can relate to. A very good book, in fact, fabulous! ***** :-)
Jan 22, 2012This is one of the most interesting reads I have had in years! A lot of humor that is at first obvious, but then Hal goes a bit further and gives it that extra twist that you did not see coming! I and I am sure a lot of other readers can and will see similarities to there own lives and situations we ALL get ourselves into, but the authors talent is more than capable of making even the most odd or even mundane real life experience or fictional story extremely entertaining and funny, maybe even a learning event! And so you know, the last story in the book is not of the humorous kind but is heartwarming and will more than likely bring a tear to your eye. Did mine. My favorite short words of wisdom quote from the book: "Was at the store today, the girl behind the counter said, "have a nice day!" "To late," said I, "already watched the new and bough gas." So true! I have both the printed and eBook version of "Ain't Normal" and recommend you... More > purchase either one if you want to get more than a few laughs and smiles in your life. You will not be disappointed!< Less
Jan 22, 2012Just read this book a second time. Hal recounts experiences that many of us may have had in our own lifetime. Often I said to myself: I remember doing something like that, but never could I come close to putting it in print as well as Hal has done. Many times I laughed until the tears ran down my face, and my wife commented on how great it was to hear me laugh so often. And many times I just sat there and said: How true! Take a chance, read about "Going to the Dentist" and relate it to your own experiences and tell me that it was not funny. Here's hoping there is a sequel sometime in the near future.
Jan 18, 2012Hal's book is good for satirical knowledge. Makes you think....."Did I ever do something like that?". If you're looking for a book that you don't have to sit through totally to get to the ending, then this is it. But the stories are so funny and engrossing why wouldn't you want to finish it all at once. You never know what the next story will entail. Keep up the good work Hal.
Jan 17, 2012In "Hal Adkins Ain't Normal" the author tells lighthearted short stories with a comical twist. The stories are based on his life experiences and they are presented in a fashion which can make the reader relate to the author. The reader can take away from each short story a life lesson or pro-tip. This advise is expressed with a friendly tone and the reader can still enjoy the book even if they disagree with one chapter's lesson. The humor and tongue-in-cheek jokes are a great source of laughs and can be read multiple times without losing their value. The book is an easy read and worth its price. Also Greg Wallace's drawings add unique visual perspective to the stories.
