Beautiful members of the Undead searching for a nice light snack/true love.
Teenage wizards battling adversaries so fearsome they must not be named.

It is rare that I don't finish a book, but this was just not my cup of tea at all. I understand that this is a sarcastic commentary about people today, but this went beyond sarcasm to bitter and I didn't enjoy it.

Just like having a conversation with a friend after work... yes, a bit one sided, but Robert's style was so friendly that with each story or anecdote, he drew me in, so I coulld become part of the story.
I enjoyed the story separations, which made it easy to stop and start again, reading in little spurts which is my usual style.

I had the pleasure of reading The Hook's blog before he made this book and was so excited to see he did a book! This book was absolutely hilarious just like his blogs and I am anxiously awaiting more books from him!

Some very funny stories, but the book could have been edited down to be much shorter. I started getting boored about half way through as many of the stories were very similar.

I couldn't finish this book. It was a great concept but was just organized not very coherently so it was a bit frustrating to read.
