One of the books that you could finish in one sitting and get a laugh worth a full novel. I caught myself smiling moments after reading when I remember his funny stories.

It was fun. I especially liked the essay on the mall Amazing Race, which was about a unique and hilarious experience, and digressed into analysis quite smoothly.
