I wrote before about how I was going to start doing honest reviews for Blogging For Books, and I finally finished reading the first book that I requested. I have been reading a lot of dystopia novels, and i have been trying to get away from that, so the first book I chose was John Moe's Dear Luke, We Need to talk. Dad. The book seemed like a straight pop culture humor book, and was something easy I needed to read in-between other books.
I read a few of the reviews and they appear mixed. Some people thought the book was not funny, and others really loved it. To be honest, I thought the book was just okay. Some of the "letters" I thought were not funny, and some of this had to do with the fact that due to my age they went over my head.
However, there were a few I generally enjoyed. A few that I enjoyed were the Welp Reviews, Excerpts from Horovitz v. Horovitz (2013) regarding the right to party, Captain James T. Kirk's lost log entries, and the e-mail from Fox Mulder to Dana Scully concerning the lost X-Files. These were pop-culture references that I understood and could laugh easily at. A few of the other ones I just didn't understand. I think that the repetitive timeline of rejected Super Bowl Half-Time Show Proposals were not funny and actually hindered this book.
Even though parts of the books were not funny, this was light-hearted easy read, so I did ultimately enjoy it.
Happy Reads Everyone!
