Anyone who has read my reviews knows that every now and then I love to read an unusual and quirky novel that doesn’t follow any set formula. Because of its hilarious ending, David Grant’s Hollywood Ending is one of the best so far.

As an actor, Johnny has been able to score some bit parts and a short stint on a soap opera, but he’s best known as the Honest Guy in a toothpaste commercial. So when a big-time agent named Reggie gives him an interview, he’s all set to be disappointed.

Instead, Reggie wants to sign him for an upcoming crime thriller, for which Johnny might get a chance to work with Wesley Snipes. However, Reggie tells him that his acting isn’t worth crap, so he needs to do exactly what he’s told if he wants to keep the part.

Per Reggie’s suggestion, Johnny meets with a known bank robber named Rasheed to learn how to be a criminal. When they start planning an actual hit on a local bank, Johnny wonders just how far he’s willing to go just for the chance to star alongside Wesley Snipes.

As I neared the conclusion of Hollywood Ending, I had a sneaking suspicion that I knew what was going on, and I began snickering. Then, when it was all over, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. I simply loved this short, innovative tale about a down-and-out actor named Johnny. Anyone who’s chasing a dream can relate to him—I know I did.

Every character in Hollywood Ending stands out—each with his or her own quirks and personality traits—making it a lively and thoroughly entertaining tale. Johnny comes across as a confused and desperate man who’s looking to make his acting dreams come true in any way he can—but that doesn’t make him appear naďve. Instead, it makes him an endearing human being—and you’ll hope with all your heart that he’ll succeed.

Moments of suspense mixed with off-the-wall humor make Hollywood Ending a smile-inducing, feel-good read that you simply can’t miss—and that makes David S. Grant an author to keep an eye on.
