My only complaint is that some of the characters only take on certain traits after the narrative reveals those traits.
My only other complaint is you never found out what is so special about the hero to cause everything to be set in motion.
My only other other complaint is that I wish the book was as funny as his blog. Though it may be hard to write a book about Oreo peeps, and still hey people to read it.
Definitely worth the read.
Kind of wish there was a sequel....or prequel...
Thanks for the weirdness.
The book starts a bit slowly, as though feeling its way and gathering up its energy. Robbie is, conveniently, stranded one dark and stormy night in front of a creepy, scary mansion. In the best "Rocky Horror Picture Show" tradition he seeks aid and ends up a resident. In fact, this is a Mansion from which you can check out, but you can never leave. A virtual prisoner, but with free access throughout the Hall, Robbie explores and finds terrors galore. (Most are along the lines of silly terrors that a Monty Python troupe would invent.) A lot of the humor is along the "Surely, you must be joking. ... I never joke, and don't call me Shirley." line, but that's O.K.. There are also some very sly and deadpan bits and throwaway lines, so this isn't all whoopee cushions and puns.
Robbie encounters a wide ranging assortment of fellow prisoners, including the beautiful and enigmatic Sarah, and a variety of inmates who have slowly gone mad as a consequence of being trapped in the Mansion. Some characters are interesting and some don't go anywhere in particular, but the action is frantic enough and the Mansion is heavily populated enough that there's always something or someone new around the next corner, so the tale just keeps growing.
And here's the good part - just as you begin to wonder where this is going to go, and begin to tire of the formula, the story develops an actual plot. It's even a good plot, although I won't at all hint at what that plot is. Nope, not even a little hint. Sorry.
So, fun and funny and an admirable bit of work. Lighthearted comedy, indeed.
