A Rare Successful Sequel, April 30 2011
I posted this on Amazon.com, but wanted to share it here too:
I recently received an advanced copy of The Book of Even More Awesome (BOEMA) won via Twitter contest. Having had a chance to read it in advance of its release was itself awesome, so I am sharing this brief review.
Frequently, the problem with sequels is we want them to be exactly the same as the original while, at the same time, being completely different - more often than not, they are unable to live up to that promise.
The BOEMA is a rare book that lives up to the challenge. It manages to retain the sweetness and humour of the original while giving us a completely different set of things that make us smile.
Like Volume 1, The BOEMA is a reminder that there is a great deal of awesomeness in this mundane world of the everyday. And that, is worth revisiting.
