I give this review 3 stars because I am a huge fan of TheOatmeal. I can't give this a full 5 stars simply because AFTER paying for it and downloading to the NOOK did I find out that half the comics are either too small to read (and you can't enlarge the text on the comic) or were already on the The Oatmeal website. I thought I would get original comics here that weren't available for free on the website.

Overall I wish I could get my money back, but not because I am disappointed in The Oatmeals work. Matthew Inman is a comedic genius.

    Great collection of comics

    I really enjoyed this but my only gripe would be that it was not presented very well as a Nook Book. I was constantly having to zoom into the images. I'd suggest you buy the hard copy until they work out the kinks in the formatting on the Nook Color/Tablet. Knocking off a star for that only.

    Dont buy this book!!!!

    do not buy this book! It is totally worthless and a complete waste of money! Every page is waaaaay to small to read (and i have good eye sight)! And theres no way to zoom or make it larger. I wish i never bought this.

    Specific Comedy

    There were definitely a few pages I found pretty funny, but for the most part this book isn't very funny. However, it is pretty entertaining when it isn't funny. It wouldn't be worth paying more than $10 for, but if you find a copy and 20 minutes go ahead and read it.

    Mostly Funny

    A lot of this book was funny. Parts of it not so much. I did enjoy it. I laughed out loud at some of it. The only problem is -- parts are too small to read on a Nook. I had to read it in my Nook for PC, where it comes up a bit larger. I would recommend buying the paperback over downloading it.

    funny and a little off

    This is a funny and sometimes irreverent look at all things in life, like bears. grammer, dinosaurs, keeping a Canadian as a per, ect... It is good for a few laughs.
