's review
Apr 28, 11

Read in April, 2011

I let the dice dictate what review I write.
My review should be...

1. a normal one
2. just 1 word
3. a fairy-tale
4. in rhyme
5. a hatemail
6. non-existent

I roll a... 4

As the author of this book already said,
Never create an option on which you don't want to bet.
So now I am stuck with having to write a review in rhyme :-(
But imagine having the dice control your life every single time
For that is what Dr. Rhinehart in this book sets out to do
The dice control what he eats, when he sleeps, when he goes to the loo.
In his eyes the dice will liberate mankind
And though in itself this is quite an interesting find,
The book is just too long and has too much sex for my taste
I would have preferred it shorter and a bit more chaste.
So though I enjoyed it and liked the principle idea,
Out of 5 this book for me scores only a simple 3.
