5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius - Read Author's Online Content First, October 21, 2012
By 
This review is from: How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You (Paperback)
I have never written an Amazon review before (as you will see, for good reason). However the negative reviews of this book are amazeballs. Either people are 1)having technical issues with the e-book 2)have never read Matthew Inman's online comics or 3) didn't look at the book's description before buying it (and expecting it to be like his first book).

Addressing each of these:

1) When MS Works doesn't work on your Windows 98 PC, do you blame the writer? Oh yeah, you are the person holding your mouse upside down and calling the support desk to come down to fix it.

2) Do your homework man! If the title didn't give you a heads up that this book is a bit effed up, then reading Matthew's online content would surely give you an indication of what you're in for. If you don't like profanity and you read /bought this book...only you are to blame for not having enough media literacy to make a good decision about your purchase.

3) Read the author's webpage for this book (Amazon won't let me post it here). It very clearly describes a book ALL ABOUT CATS. Additionally, when do you expect an author's book to be exactly like his/her last book? Ok...except for Cormac Mccarthy.

Ok...if you've gotten this far in my stupid little rant, here's my psuedo review. If you like The Oatmeal, you are a crazy cat person that knows you are a crazy cat person (and/or simply enjoy laughing at crazy cat people), and you realize you should buy the actual physical/paper copy of graphic content (most of which is available online for free, but you like supporting artists and their awesome works), then stop reading my crappy review and go buy this book. If not, stop reading my crappy review and use the comments to tell me how dumb this review is.

In conclusion, The Oatmeal is nothing if not pure genius. If you don't get that, you should really question the value of your life.
