His ordinary life is fraught with hilarious situations under unusual circumstances in this funny, romantic tale of mystery. 5.0 out of 5 stars Laughin' & Gaspin' - You'll Do Both ByThe Thirdon A Flaming Rose is an exceptional book written by the exceptional up and coming author. E.L. Rhodes. In this book E.L. sets you up to be dropped at the end of the story. My man, Melvin (main character) didn't even see it coming. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something different in today's crowded literary world. As if A Flaming Rose wasn't enough, E.L. Rhodes gives you a sneak peek of what else he has in store wtih an excerpt from his next novel, The Serialization of Discontent. I'm looking forward to reading it and going for another ride. This book definately deserves 5 stars! 5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious ByChristaon January 17, 2009 This story will make you laugh from the beginning to the end, which makes it a fast read because you just don't want to put it down. And you don't have to have grown up in S.E. Washington D.C. to think that it is funny! Mr. Rhodes revealed in one of his interviews that he relates to his characters in some way. I believe that is the secret of superior creative writing, not to mention his marvelous sense of humor.
