I cheated and listened to the audibook version - which both helped and hurt the book. The writers all come from improv / performance backgrounds, and, surprisingly enough, most of the book's jokes really only work when said aloud.

The downside is that three authors are doing the voices of a good twenty or so characters - and there's only so many fake, goofy southern accents I can really stand to listen to before I kind of thing they all need to be slapped.

It has the same "precocious kid in a creative writing workshop" feel as a lot of their work, but hey, it all comes together into a fairly funny conclusion.
