    Delightful fluff Enjoyed every page Save it for a down time in your life, when it can serve as the escapist fun you need with that freshly spiced sardonic skewering of particular personalities with which we have been burdened in our society Got it free on Kindle, but had to dig its getting harder and harder to find those free versions Or maybe my tastes just run too obscure Well wake up, people, and read this stuff Then I will be part of mainstream culture without having to give up any e Delightful fluff Enjoyed every page Save it for a down time in your life, when it can serve as the escapist fun you need with that freshly spiced sardonic skewering of particular personalities with which we ha...
