    Couldn't put it down

    As the title says, raunchy but at the same time hilarious. Each increasingly unlikely vignette is described in increasingly outrageous terms. A real page turner, I couldn't wait to find out how it all came together.

    This book is awful!  There is no plot.  The only attempt at a plot is the use of "portals" which just seems to be thrown in haphazardly to make it seem like an actual book.

    Waste of Paper

    People who buy this expecting to get a story will be very disappointed. There is no story here, just a bunch of random, incoherent, ridiculous chapters that never tie in together, and never make sense. What few recurring characters appear in this "book" do nothing to advance a plot, because there is NO plot. I am at a loss as to how this could be a New York Times Bestseller, or how it could garner so much praise. Before I am debunked as a conservative, or someone trying to censor literature, let me say that I have no problem with the "book's" content. I don't care about the language, or the gratuitous sex. My problem with it is that it's complete garbage. A boring, worthless waste of time and money.

    Skip it

    Very light and pointless. The best that can be said for it is women are not treated as sexual objects.

    Silly

    Written for a precocious 14 year old on hormone overload, but a precocious 14 year old wouldn't bother. For anyone else, it is a tedious romp through...I don't know what. It never seems to get to a point. I conditionally enjoyed The Fermata which I bought at the same time. I think I have now fulfilled any obligation to know who Nicholson Baker is if there is every a literary reference to him.

    Funny!

    The real charm of this book is the humor. Sure, it is raunchy. Definitely arousing. Probably a bit shocking. In the end, it is the humor and the creativity that keeps you turning the pages. Chapter after chapter, I found myself fascinated by the things he was dreaming up.

    You might be a bit put off by the content...but once you start reading, I dare you to put it down.
