Compelling Aspect of the Book: The most compelling aspect of this book is definitely the comedy. It's so weird you can't really put it down. Most of the characters are so random, it gets pretty funny.
Did you finish: Yes
Were you disappointed with the book at all: When I first started reading this book, I fully anticipated it being the next Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (because of the writing style). Then as the story went on, it started getting a little cheesy. The plot didn't really go anywhere for a couple chapters and the characters were underdeveloped. It could have used a little more thought.
Comments: It has a very nice recipe for butternut squash.
Did the cover tempt you and/or reflect the contents of the book: The cover definitely did tempt me to pick up the book, just because there's no illustrations. It didn't exactly reflect the contents, but it definitely makes it look a little more interesting.
