Matthew Good is probably my all time favoriet musician. I love his cynisim and world political awareness. The darkness in his music defintely translate into this book. Love Love all I can say.

The blurbs on the back of the book pretty much say it all: "Complete crap from beginning to end." or "...extremely redundant and wandering. The kind of book that makes you feel like you've wasted precious hours of your life for nothing."

I enjoyed this book more when I was younger, now I just wonder how I didn't see then how utterly stupid it is. Here's a quotation from You Can Tell Them I'm Coming. And Hell's Coming With Me, which is probably the truest bit in this book:

I really don't know how to rate this book. It is one of five or fewer books that has ever given me a profound sense of horror, to a degree that moved me beyond my control. Others that have moved me so include A Wrinkle in Time, when I was a child, 1984, issue 100 of The Walking Dead, and House of Leaves. All of those books I consider among the best I've ever read.

What I learned from this book:
Screwing with Tele-evangelists is highly amusing
If a porn star invites you back to her apartment, say no.
Do not swim in a hot tub full of spiked jello when drunk
How to fake multiple personality disorder
Always listen to The Handbook
Nobody knows what the purple switch does

Recommends it for: Matthew Good, Chuck Palahniuk, Douglas Coupland fans
I absolutely loved this book from start to finish - Matt's collection of short stories bring a lot to the table. His satire and humor made the book that much better, and I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of Chuck Palahniuk or Douglas Copeland.
At Last there is nothing left to say has definitely become one of my favourite books.

A collection of ramblings by one of my favourite Canadian musicians. It's not hard to see where his song writing comes from when you read some of the more personal stories here.
