I think this is one of the worst books I have ever read In fact, I usually see books all the way through This book was obviously written by Willie Geist in one day while he smoked crack cocaine This is poorly written, unimaginative, and vulgar which I only mind in combination with the first two.
This book is a compilation of fake stories about famous people from politics and pop culture A few of them were funny, but I was disappointed than I was impressed, which is a real shame because I love Willie Geist on MSNBC One of the interesting stories was right at the beginning when Geist tells you about meeting former Governor Rod Blagojevich it is the only true tale in the book I think Geist would have been successful if he had written from his real life, rather than trying to create fake events.
I hate having to give this book such a low rating, because I really like Willie Geist In fact, I will admit to having a bit of a crush on his very tall self Some of his premises were really very funny, and everyone he wrote about totally deserves the ridicule, but much of the cleverness was lost in so much profanity and crudeness It was overdone, in my opinion I gave it an extra star, however, for the list of people he wished he could have included at the end.
Portions of this book are laugh out loud funny And, read out loud funny, as I performed certain fabricated stories for my husband when I could stop snorting with laughter Witty Worth reading if you re up on history, religion, and culture to get it.
Yes, I will admit some chapters were funnier than others, but I think this book deserves a higher rating on here The chapter on Eliot Spitzer was so sick it actually managed to actually make me laugh out loud on the bus a very tough thing to do The stories of everyday freaks were also great I liked the vacuum one Love me some Willie.
hated it, didn t find it funny, but I misunderstood the premise when I picked it up I thought it was a book about stories that were false but represented as true, like Lies Across America when it is actually just fake stories, like The Onion or The New Yorker s Shouts Murmers.
Parts of this book were pretty funny Sadly, the humor was kind of hit and miss If you like satire and enjoy reading The Onion , there is a chance that you may find this book entertaining.
I think with comedy writers tend to over think it and they think every sentences has to be a hilarious line Which isn t the case And this satire turned out to be a little too ridiculous I couldn t even get through the chapter about Tiger Wood s sex addiction.
Not to say there wasn t some truly funny parts, you just had to dig and look past the affectedly vulgar tone I also might not have enjoyed it as much considering all the jokes were rather time sensitive, and I don t care any about half of the people that are made fun of.
