I don't normally review books (although if you're reading this in Google Reader, I do list out the books I'm reading on the right of the blog). Not only is this an amazing book jacket design, I also don't think I've enjoyed a book so much in a few years. Semple writes laugh-out-loud funny prose which satirizes contemporary life in such an innovative way: fiction rarely feels this alive to me. Spent every spare moment of the last few days laughing and greedily rampaging through the novel, while simultaneously being disappointed that I will never write this well. If you're looking for a totally compelling and strangely adorable book: this is for you!
