The Adventures of Whatley Tupper
The concept is simple enough, a "choose your own adventure" book for adults. Is this great literature, the next Hemmingway, Dickens, or Fitzgerald? Of course not. Is the plot, actually any of the many potential plots, a fantastic story? No, not really - at least none that I found.
But all these questions miss the point. What Whatley Tupper aims to be is fun (it is). Funny (that too). One review I saw called it a guilty pleasure, a description I can't argue with either. It's strange, ridiculous, and downright weird at times (if you pick the right - or is that wrong - choice). If you don't like how it turns out, just try again. For a bunch of laughs and a ton of fun Whatley Tupper may the perfect choice.
Adult adventure means "not kids." Don't read too much into the "adult" tag. Although there are a few sexual situations those I found were tamer than a typical bestseller and many YA books.
