CBC s The Next Chapter had a great interview with the auhor, and I have enjoyed his humour on The Debaters So I opened this book with great anticipation And shortly aftee closed it with disappointment Not very funny IMHO and I didn t like the style of a series of short letters. Entertaining, flippant. Funny but repetitive after a while. There are some laugh out loud moments in this book, for certain, but it wasn t hard to put down. I m going to start this review by saying that I won a copy of this book by entering a goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.I heard of Steve Pattersons comedy skits and I was thrilled to hear that he wrote a book, and evenexcited when I realized that I won a copy of it.He is a very funny comedian and this was a very funny book.What I like the most about this book is that each letter is written as a stand alone letter and it doesn t follow through as a novel would I love this I m going to start this review by saying that I won a copy of this book by entering a goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.I heard of Steve Pattersons comedy skits and I was thrilled to hear that he wrote a book, and evenexcited when I realized that I won a copy of it.He is a very funny comedian and this was a very funny book.What I like the most about this book is that each letter is written as a stand alone letter and it doesn t follow through as a novel would I love this idea because it made it possible for me to be able to read a couple of letters each day and laugh about them and then go on to read another novel without getting mixed up with the plots since this novel doesn t really have one.It s a very funny pick me up if you need a good laugh or if you have some extra time to kill He writes about things that some people may think about everyday but don t really question, such as how much the letter e is actually used or how there aren t many people named Gary in the world It s hard to imagine how topics such as knees, household paint and coffee can be funny, but Steve manages to write about these common things in an insanely funny way.The letters are very short, I think the longest one is maybe 2 pages long so they don t take a lot of time to read at all and you get very good laughs from each one of them.I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who loves to laugh because that is exactly what reading this book will make them do I listened to Steve Patterson read one of these letters Dear The Bay at a comedy event a few months ago, and his delivery must have been a big part of the reason I found it so funny at the time because the book as a whole was just okay There were several good one liners and I liked the tone, but overall there wasn t much to it.
