Simon Rich - The Last Girlfriend on Earth (review) 

music: how to destroy angels - the believers

rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I should have enjoyed this book. It was, however, just OK for me. Although some of the stories were funny, most of them seemed to fall flat for me. Reading this book was kind of like a joke that gets told one too many times—it’s funny at first but after the sixth, seventh, and eighth time of the same type of punchline (man hooks up with a hairy beast, man tries to get help for robot girlfriend, etc) it just wasn’t funny anymore. I’m glad these were short stories, because I honestly don’t think I could sit through an entire novel written by this author.
