This book is not like any other book you've read.

Some have said David Wong should have quit about 130 pages in and called it a novella. He's actually got about 3 novellas tied together in one over-arching kind of way.

I liked it.

I giggled like a schoolgirl in several parts, and I also had to put it down at night for fear of nightmares. The narrator pulls you in to his particular brand of crazy, and even makes his convoluted logic make sense in your own head. I was rooting for him the whole time.

It does, at times, feel amateurish, but that's easily overlooked as it is so funny, and such an original idea.

If you like to laugh, and you enjoy the dick and fart joke humor, I highly recommend this book
