This is another one of those books where the cover and title just don't do the contents justice. This book is actually cleverly written, funny, sweet (perhaps a bit too sweet, but then I'm a sucker for misery) and has nice timing. Nothing feels rushed our out of the way. I even found things in it that I wanted to quote, such as "He was an asshole. Ergo, he needed a beer." When I see things like that, that's it, I have to love it.
