The first story struck me as rather clumsy, but they continued to get better and better. The last one was hysterical. I'm tempted to give the book a five just on account of that one.

Everyone needs to experience the world of Homer Price at least once! Filled with hilarious situations which are all solved by Homer Price, an average all-American boy.
