A book truly from hell. Note: this is NOT meant as a compliment. I mistakenly thought that these letters were going to be real and hellish, but alas, they're just the wordy, not funny blabbings made up by the author on stupid subjects like "Filling and loathing on Elm St", "Holiday Skinheads at Starbucks," and "Yuletide yearnings from Christopher Walken." Yuck!
I thought this was going to be horrible xmas letters that people had actually written to each other, ala awkward family photo style. Instead they were letters that were supposed to be funny from famous people or certain characters (your grandmother, a burner, Osama). I chuckled slightly once, in the 6 I attempted to read.

Read this a few years ago and when I didn't find it funny, I just thought perhaps I was too young to understand its humor. But then I read reviews from other people and well, turns out it's really not funny at all.
