it was ok

As soon as I read about this book, I pre-ordered it for my Nook. A few days later it was on my device, and I started reading. The premise is great, but there's only so far you can stretch a joke. By the middle of the book I was completely bored, which is why it took me so long to finish it. It became treadmill reading, so I only got a few pages in at the gym, and there were lots of days I didn't bother to read it, and watched t.v. instead. I'm glad I didn't buy it in physical form. If you're really interested, borrow it from the library. It's not a keeper.
