I guess you could say I read this book. I read every chapter heading and the single page with words. I liked that page. The illustrations all look like cigarette burns with black & white clouds or seascapes in them, and then one page IS a cigarette burn, or the digitally created facsimile of one. Spoiler alert: everyone dies at the end. The full experience for me was kind of like a joke I did not get.

I waited 3 months to get a copy of this book through an out-of-town library....and finished in 5 minutes. I'm still not sure if the author actually wrote on one of the pages or someone before me marked up the page themselves feeling starved for content.

I think my review is rather funny, if I do say so myself!

Davis was kind enough to sign his name repeatedly in my copy, one letter per page.
