What does this have to do with the new E-Book I've been reading? Well, a book is something I do like to savor (as long as it's not a mystery), but I promised I'd post a review "within a couple of weeks. " So I sat down with book (well, with computer screen), and pen and paper. After two weeks of reading and
And as I looked at the notes I had taken, I found that I was doing this fine work a disservice. The whole point of this novella is to find the simple ways to enjoy the rest of your life before the Mayans destroy everything, and here I am taking notes!
This is a story to be savored, much like the "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader" series, where you read a couple of stories (as necessary) at a time, getting the most out of each one as they draw away the stench of life. Many of these are things, in our impishness, we have already done, such as stealing the mall cop's seguay, or running for president. (Oops, that was the list for, "things that you've seriously considered. Please paste in "buying yourself Christmas presents" and "finding a great elevator to sing commercial jingles in".) Others are a bit more risque, like playing elevator roulette or using your dog to pick up chicks. Oh wait, that's in the "things I've attempted" category, too!
What this book won't allow is for me to rush to a conclusion and truly enjoy it. I suppose I could leaf through the table of contents and cherry-pick the best ones, but that would only hurt myself- much like all the book reports we did in high school. (see "Stretching a three-paragraph dust-cover synopsis into a 1,000 word report for idiots".) I have already spent far too little time meditating on topics such as "Going to work in a gorilla suit", "stop picking up after your pet", and "bathe in your neighbor's sprinkler system".
So perhaps the best compliment for this tome is that I cannot read the whole thing and review it in 2 weeks. I can read 44.5% of it in two weeks and give you 34.7 % of a review, though, and can highly recommend it. You will laugh, you will cry, and you'll only kiss $1.99 goodbye!
