Intelligent for some, stupid for others, but always hilarious.
What could be said about this book? At first glimpse, it is a collection of mostly dirty, related short stories about a writer with an oversized ego and his sexual and political escapades. From page one, it is evident that these are some of the funniest short stories to be read; with gut wrenching laughs coming from all sorts of double entendres. But the deeper you read into the book, the more you appreciate the underlying satire. While in some parts it is hard to tell what is being satirized, at least for younger readers like myself, other satire is bitingly clear and adds to the enjoyment of the book. The satire is what shows that this is a carefully thought out work, rather then a book based solely on sex jokes. So, if you are a part of the intelligent crowd, you will enjoy this book for the satire, and if you have never been deep in analyzing literature, then you will love this book for the sex jokes. But either way, this book will shock you at times and make you cry of laughter at others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
