Reviews
"Combining elements of Jonathan Tropper, Tom Perrotta, and Augusten Burroughs, Somers' incisive, pull-no-punches examination of adult friendship is refreshingly witty. Tautly paced and expertly assembled, Chum is a darkly comic, deeply insightful, and wildly original novel." --Booklist

"I liked this book before I started to really know the characters. I think this book does a good job of showing how friendships can progress and regress... I liked the idea of different narrators who allowed us to see their unique perspectives." --Beauty and the Book Blog

"With friends like these who needs enemies... To the extent that they represent a segment of American society, the novel is a significant critique of that segment, a critique bound carefully in a truly compelling story." --Blogcritics.org

"In this dazzling new novel, readers will believe they are on quite a different course than what this mystery will eventually reveal.... Jeff Somers carries it off brilliantly.... A very worthwhile read and comes highly recommended." --Reviewing the Evidence
