I got this book: from the publisher for review
"Artist, mail-order Reverend, and all-around creative type Rev Jen is known for sporting elf ears and being curator of a Troll Museum inside her sixth-floor walkup apartment on the lower east side of New York City. She counts among her accomplishments being creator and host of “Anti-Slam,” an open-mike series where everyone gets a perfect ten (which The Village Voice calls “performance meets cry for help”), and working as a Christmas Elf at Bloomingdales. Now, this anti- Sex and the City girl and cheerleader for nonconformists, geeks, and oddballs of the world delivers a funnier, quirkier version of I Was Told There’d Be Cake or The Idiot Girls’ Action-Adventure Club . She’s zany, eccentric, and hopeful, and her unchecked candor makes her impossible not to love, as she recounts various tales from her colorful life."
I picked this up because I thought I would enjoy reading about a fellow geeky artist. The first few chapters were funny and I even laughed out loud a few times so things started off promising. I liked the quirkiness of the way Rev deals with life in the beginning but as I continued, it just became exhausting. I couldn't believe that someone can act like this ALL the time and after a few more chapters where my dislike for the story kept growing, I gave up and decided that I wouldn't finish this book. It was just too much for me, and I am pretty quirky myself but I just didn't buy it.
Bwah! I didn't like it!
