My Sweater Smells Like Taco Bell

Here are some recent blurbs for The Beard:

"Okay at best." -Anonymous

"Loved it. If Holden Caulfield rented a timeshare in Vegas, only to find out he double booked with Hunter Thompson, and then they both sat down over a buffet of mind-altering drugs and wrote a book, I THINK it might be something like THE BEARD.

BEHOLD THE POWER OF FACIAL HAIR." -Nathaniel Lambert, co-author of Sideshow PI: The Devil's Garden (I highly recommend this, by the way)

"This book would make an excellent introduction to the world of Bizarro fiction." -Chris B., Goodreads

"...this quirkiness can be irritating, and if it was much longer I’d undoubtedly be infuriated by how ‘whacky’ it all is." -F.R.J., Goodreads

"It's like eating a creativity sandwich." -Daniel Clausen, author of The Lexical Funk

"I read this book backwards." -Jasmine, Goodreads

"Sure to please any fan of weird fiction." -Grant Wamack

"I can't help feeling cheated by its shallowness." -Tortla, Goodreads

"I loved this book. I loved its feel, its pace, and its imagery." -Lucas Thorn, Lateral Obsessions

"I have no time to waste on books that seem a chore to get through. Absolutely not recommended." -K.G., Amazon Reviewer

I'm excited to have one of my comments elevated to "blurb"status.

Well, I would say you're in "mixed comapany".

Ha! I adore that you included the negative reviews. It's like a friendly reminder that everything is subjective and anyone who says their product will please everybody is knowingly presenting a bona fide five-dollar foot long of Lie on Rye.

Variety is indeed the spice of life.

Good on you for posting both types of reviews. That takes guts!
