Bears, Recycling and Confusing Time Paradoxes by Greg X. Graves
Copy Courtesy of 1889 Labs
A collection of short stories which are meant to give moral guidance. They cover many situations such as how to recycle and what to do when you have a vampire suitor.
Now, I like odd and weird books, but this one really just confused me. Each story was only a few pages long and had a moral of the story at the end. It seemed like the author was trying to write stories with advice that should have been funny in the context of the story but completely missed the boat and simply ended up with morals of the stories that had me scratching my head.
I will admit that there are a couple stories that managed to just barely hit the mark of funny in context, but the rest were so... bad that I almost didn't finish the book despite it only being 168 pages long.
I think the concept could have been very entertaining as the synopsis promised all sorts of strange and silly situations, but it just completely failed to deliver.
