it was ok

i'm not sure why i loved The Nimrod Flipout Stories so much but don't seem to like any of keret's other books. maybe i just already got the joke or something. the stories are all very clever and sharply written, but i can never really get into them. i never really give a shit. they end and i'm like, well, that one's over. plus a lot of these were just gross. people peeing a lot, i noticed. not that i give a shit if people pee in your book, but when the biggest reaction i have while reading is "ew, people peeing again," i think there's a problem.

Lisa Haha, I bought this because I like some of his stories A LOT (enough that I don't mind feeling like I don't quite get others), but now I am dreading the pee stories!


Dasha i think you should reconsider the peeing. the author perhaps tried to implement the imagery to that of a man clearing out his system.
