review 1: Billy wakes up to find that not only has he switched bodies with his wife Tina, but most of the town has switched bodies with someone...or something. Reminicent of movies like "Freaky Friday" and "Dream a Little Dream" (you know...the awesome one with the Coreys) this novella's premise and delivery is hilarious and wonderfully written. It's not all fun and games, though, when Bill realizes that a person never really knows someone until they walk a mile in their body. This is a thought-provoking piece that I highly recommend.
review 2: Muscle Memory is unusual. Of course it's unusual. It's a Bizarro book. What kind of stupid thing is it to say that a Bizarro book is unusual? Muscle Memory is unusual in that it's strangely literary and more human than otherwise.
... moreThe strangeness and the mystery come off as the mysteries of life and love and humanity. Muscle Memory is a body switching comedy. You've seen those, 80s movies where a kid and a dad undergo the old switcheroo until they both learn a lesson. Some of them like Vice Versa are pretty bad, some of them like Blake Edwards' Switch, which this reminds me of by its warmth and sensitivity are very good. Muscle Memory is character driven, funny and wise. Hopefully we will see more work from Steve Lowe and it will carry with it these traits. less
