Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

If you never thought about shooting your no-good boyfriend, you probably ARE a boyfriend and should not read this book except for cautionary purposes.

Cammy May Hunnicutt takes that impulse to its logical conclusion - and the results are hilarious. Unleashed from rewrites and editing, the rather terrifying Ms. Hunnicutt reveals a dark, cutting wit that will leave fellow-sufferers in stitches. Probably the definitive book on the rationale, reasoning, procedure, ramifications, and euphoria or shooting one's paramour in areas most responsible for getting him shot, "Considerations Prior To Shooting Your Boyfriend Right In The Nuts" is a bid for respectability for this under-utilized, but satisfactory of maintaining a woman's mental hygiene.

No aspect of nutshots goes unexamined in this seminal work, including choice of proper weapons, a Hall of Fame of successful ballblasters, case studies of justifiable nuticide, and all things considered about this rather exciting, if often misunderstood, practice. Ms. Hunnicutt joins historical satirists with ideas whose time had come, such as Swift, Orwell, Carlin, the Unabomber. If you have a boyfriend, or recently got dumped by one, this book is certainly worth the money ... and your "consideration."

Mandy's Review:

Let me start by saying that I agreed to review this because the title was pretty funny to me. I held hopes that the pages of the book would hold the same type of humor.

I was appalled.

While reading, all I could think about was how bad the author must have been done by her ex in order to write this. I can tell the author was trying to be witty and humorous, but it came across as angry and resentful. The whole book was more of an encouragement for women to shoot their boyfriends/lovers/f-buddies in the testicles rather than just leave him ... all for the "sisterhood" of women.

There's even reference pages in the back with pictures of various guns and their uses ... Really?!!

The author promises more books to come. I'm sure she'll have an exclusive audience somewhere (you'll probably see them on the news or read about them in the papers), but I know I will not be part of it after this.

*Ebook was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.


  1. Hmm, I umm... the title is funny. I admit that I am curious as to how a series about shooting boys in the nuts is going to play out. I don't say this often, but I don't believe I've ever seen a book quite like this. :) Thank you for sharing.

  2. I agree about the title, that's why I agreed to read the book. Other than that, it left me smh ...
