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

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.

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.

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!

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.
