The Wrong Way to Feed a Unicorn
by: Christain Knoebel
Charles wants to keep his 13-year-old daughter Lexi happy even if it means taking care of a manipulative, potty mouthed unicorn that continually insults his hospitality, intelligence and manhood. But when it comes to food they have a problem, and Charles finds himself hunting down one of the world's most expensive ingredients in a crime-ridden neighborhood known for its grisly dealings with outsiders.
Along the way he meets a long lost high school friend with a fast-food job and unusual knowledge of high-end cuisine; a voodoo wielding faith healer and his side-arm carrying bodyguard, a nearsighted stripper with a taste for knives, and her jealous boyfriend who confronts Charles for stealing his girl. Only one of them will walk away.

Holy cow this was awesome. I'm not one to read short stories, I like to really get into a book and read it forever if I can. But it was about a unicorn and I just couldn't pass it up. If this book was any longer it would have failed horribly, it is absolutely perfect.
The unicorn, Charles and everyone was awesome. I really want to know why Christina called him Chiggers though. The way things were explained is what really made this book something different. And I have to say this book made me hungry.
I kinda feel bad for Charles, but understand his "do anything to make my kid happy" mentality. Everything that happens to him is pretty freaking off the wall. . .I can't even explain the awesome sauce of this book. I didn't see the ending coming at all, everything was so off the wall that I really thought it was all what happened, great twist.
Its not often that I pull out the fancy little highlight option on my kindle, and I whip it out quite a few times to make sure I could go back and get a little laugh later on.
Would I recommend this book? Hell yeah I would, If you are looking for a short hilarious read look no farther then this book. You will not find anything half as crazy as this.
