I didn't find the book entertaining or worth reading. It didn't read like a satire. The beginning of the book starts off interesting but then it loses you to garbage that is boring.
The title of this book along with the cover photo was very deceiving to me. I see that and I think it is going to be a book about a parent's perspective on raising a child and all the wonderful things that come behind the experience. This was far from what this book was actually about! I enjoy reading fiction novels however the storyline in this book was totally far fetched for me and I really had a hard time believing let alone enjoying what I was reading. I realize where the author was going with this, to add humor into a story line and I could see that it parts of the story. However this was not my cup of tea at all but if you enjoy a story full of satire, government conspiracies and the idea of our genetic compound being tampered with, well then this is the book for you. It had too much mixed in within the story that at times it made it hard to follow the story line but then the author added a lot of jargon that dealt with genetic code that at that point I was lost. So this was not for me but like I said it could be a good story for one looking for a novel that is based on some peoples reality or if you want to enjoy a book that was designed to bring a smile to your face. **I received a copy of this book for my review. However, these opinions and views are my own.
Grade: C+ (Three and half stars) I have a hard time not thinking of books seriously, comedy books are hard for me, since I’m so used to reading regular fiction. But, this book was a good choice. It was funny, in an over the top kind of way. I mean it’s got the IRS, genetic monsters, and the Hope Diamond! It’s just got a lot going on for me, which made it a little hard to read. I did enjoy the hyped up war between a father and a daughter. His genetically modified, evil daughter! It’s got a lot of funny situations, and a lot of great characters. It’s a well written book, but for me, it just felt like there was a little too much crowded into the book. I laughed quite a bit, and I was entertained, I think the author did a great job of taking what we would usually expect and twisting it around a bit. I think overall, for a satire lover, this book would be a home run, I just think too much to work well with satire, but I still enjoyed this book. *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
