Like the author's works, he shows great care in weaving a story that is believable, funny, and genuine. My personal on this work is if your in the mood for satire and good shaking of your head kind at some of the nonsense people tell each other and themselves yet don't believe it themselves. I'm definitely looking for to this author's next book.
"Michael Cargill has established himself as the world's leading authority on all things sarcastic, irreverent, and nonsensical. He first appeared in 2012 with a satirical news item about a stray car tyre causing chaos on the streets of Cambridge and since then his efforts have brought forth hundreds of hilarious observations and witticisms about the world we inhabit.
From Justin Bieber's diary, to Vladimir Putin reviewing a glass of Coke, to Steve Jobs and Princess Diana speaking from heaven, and living proof that vegetarians are the real hunters, this isn't something anyone should miss out on."
From the ho-hum to snorts & snickers and onward to laugh out loud moments, there’s a bit of something for everyone in this humorous anthology. Culled from Cargill’s website it’s all here for your entertainment in case you don’t want to troll through his medicine cabinet, um, I mean site in search of amusing tidbits to keep you occupied while you’re waiting in line, stuck in traffic or ruling from your throne.
Basically, Bits of Cargill is a ton of little mini stories. My favorite though was the Nurse Ratched Advice Column. OH MY LORD! Too funny. Her tagline at the end of each insane piece of advice is "And if that doesn't work you should just kill yourself." But I probably just dropped a spoiler! Oh no....the Spoiler Police are at my front door! *Just put in the spoiler tag ma'am and no one gets hurt!*
I went that random on purpose. For real! I did it to kind of show you how quickly the pace of this book changes and just when it seems there is no way in hell that anything going on is making sense,,, BAM. Cargill throws in a great one-two punch at the end and nails it every time.
I like this guy's style and will definitely be reading more of his work in the future.
4 stars for making me actually laugh out loud while reading.
You go Michael.
