's review

really liked it

This is not an instant classic, but it is a fun little diversion if you enjoy sarcasm and truly bad examples of writing from a variety of genres and time periods. Some of the examples are quite explicit, so be warned, with categories like "overuse of profanity" and over-the top descriptions of sex.

But, if that doesn't bother you and you've got a good sense of humor, you might enjoy this. I just hope you're not too big a Stephenie Meyer or Dan Brown fan, though...they take some major abuse in this book.
