Fine as a free ebook...
on December 17, 2012
Pretty typical Tucker Max writing, however it's called "Sloppy Seconds" for a reason. This is a collection of stories that have been left out of his previous three books, and you can often tell why. If you enjoyed I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell, A**holes Finish First or Hilarity Ensues, I'm sure you'll find some laughs in this one. The book is fairly short (the first third consists of three stories, one from each of his previous books, to introduce any new readers to Tucker Max), so it doesn't take very long to read. But, the biggest problem I had is its poor conversion to ebook.
Perhaps I had an issue when downloading it, but I tried to reload it several times on both my Kindle and iPhone Kindle app to no avail. There were at least ten locations where there was a sentence (or possibly more) missing. Most of the time, this wasn't that big of a deal; I could figure out where in the story I was and piece things together. However, several times, it seemed the missing chunk of text was a punchline of the story or the key twist in the night out. I can't even tell how many errors there were, because some of the stories didn't seem to have ANY ending and I couldn't tell if that's why these stories were just "leftovers" for this ebook or if there was a missing paragraph that had a great end to the story.
I tried tweeting to Tucker Max to make him aware. No clue if he'll ever see the tweets in between all the girls trying to sleep with him, but I guess I can't be too upset since the book was a free download.
