I honestly write these reviews in a spirit of sharing and helpfulness. I have no idea why I always end up sounding so snotty...

    (427)

    Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

    Story

    I really don't like zany riffs about hobos. I didn't like it when John Hodgeman did it. And I don't like it in this book either. What is it about thirtysomething dudes and hobos?

    I LOVED the section about working as a comedian in the middle of nowhere with a coke fiend for a boss. That part made me wish, more than anything, that Patton Oswalt had done this book in a box. If written as a fairly linear, or at least thematic narrative about his early days as a comedian, I would have loved it all. He would have Killed it in that box.

    The out of the box (very arty, gen x male) stuff, I don't like so much.

    Except the part about dungeons and dragons. I've tried all my life to get guys to explain dungeons and dragons to me. They always refuse (probably because a. they know I won't be able to keep the snotty expression off my face and b. they want to reserve the right to sleep with me in the event of some horrible disaster.) Patton Oswalt - freed from such considerations - does an extremely throrough job of explaining it, and I really appreciate that.
