Not for the meant for internet geeks
While the introduction of the book had me believing I would get a few laughs out of it, as I continued reading I became more and more disappointed. Being an internet geek familiar with all the -isms the internet has to offer, I rarely found this book amusing beyond the introduction. Anyone familiar with the online community, especially the people on Craig's list who the author is targeting, knows what kind of responses to expect even for the author's fake posts.Was this review helpful?

I made it as far as the third chapter before I started skipping entries and still seeing expected responses to the author's so-called "crazy" posts. The posts in themselves were, at times, amusing but nothing I haven't read before on numerous sites that already poke fun at how crazy people are. Not to mention the sites are free. I would honestly not recommend this book.
A funny book, great light reading
If you enjoyed the "Letters from a Nut" (Ted L. Nancy) series you'll enjoy this book - it is a lighter weight version of the same idea, prank postings on Craigslist for bizarre items that amazingly, people really want.Was this review helpful?

The postings and the responses are both entertaining. Good for reading on the plane, beach, or having at home to pick up from time to time.
