nightlight

nightlight (a parody)
by The Harvard Lampoon

154 pages
Not available on audio

Grade B+

I loved this book for little snippets like this:
"I get my lack of coordination from my dad, who always used to push me down when I was learning how to walk"

and this:

"I typed in the word: Vampre. Google asked, 'Did you mean vampire?' I said, 'yes.' I felt overwhelmed and confused by the results: 'Nosferatu,' 'The Buffy Summers Workout,' 'Kristen Stewart's Onset Romance,' 'Midnight Sun leaked,' 'Robert Pattinson Excellent Blues Singer.' Weird. What did any of this have to do with vampires?"

I laughed so hard while reading this book I LOL'd for real at work sitting at my desk on my lunch break. And then I was made fun of because I told someone that I LOL'd and she couldn't believe that I actually said LOL instead of laughing out loud.

The only reason why this book is not an A for me is because it was too much like those "Not Another Teen Movie" movies. It did seem a little forced, and just plain bazaar, but it was funny.

As a matter of fact, I am going to give my copy away to a random person, if and only if, I have 50 followers by the time I reach 50 books.

And so there you have it.
