Never judge a book by it's cover. In the case of this book, the cover was too good. Groundhogs dancing? That's hilarios! What was promised, based on the back cover description, was quirky and humorous. What was delivered fell short. It was well written, but lacked soul.
I was a bit disappointed with this book. I Think Rich Hall is a very funny stand up comedian, but the book didnt really do it for me. one or two parts made me smile, but I thought it was far from Hilarious - as some reviewers said.
I loved this book. I stumbled across it by accident, and only picked it up because I recognized the writer as the creator of Sniglets, as well as being a very funny comedian and a one-time Saturday Night Live cast member. But this book is dark, very dark. David Sedaris-after-a-bad-day dark. Definitely worth reading.
