    I could not tell...

    I could not tell if Josh and Doug are in a relarionship or just buds hamming it up. Maybe that's the the point - as long as they know and are happy with it, we don't need to worry about it. I am also glad to know that there is a fan following for mimes. Twenty years ago in fandom, most people would have as soon shot a mime as not listen to him. Perhaps Doug and crew have been instrumental in changing this. If so, I salute you. Mimes have always been with us, throughout history, challenging us to open our minds with their humor and compassion. That this e-book was free was a gift. Get it while you can and tell your friends! -ANHM

    Mime-tastic

    I always love a good mime and this book did provide just that. It is a quick read mainly picture book of some well known scenes in a new light. It is sure to make you laugh and sometimes cry of laughing so hard. If you enjoy mime humor you will like this book.

    It was definitely Unique

    This was really interesting. I have been challenging myself to read things that I normally wouldn't. This picture book was hilarious. I found the mime pictures to be creative and entertaining. It was something very unique. I am glad that this was a book I picked up and flow through. I do wish that the pictures were larger. They were a little hard to read/see/enjoy on my Nook.

    Much more than I bargained for!

    I picked this up thinking that my kids who are into mimes would flip through it. Little did I know it is an actual work of art. I loved it! Warped, quirky, and histerical...right up my alley!

    Mime glad its free.

    Mostly a picture book. Very few words. Read whole thing in 5 minutes. Some disturbing photos with violence and gore. Satire or spoof pnotos of Marilyn Monroe if she was a cross dressing man. Little Red Riding Hood & grandma eating the wolf. Wolf was a male mime.
    Would not recommend. Glad it was free.
