Derek is reputed to be..repu..tational. Yes.
Default A preview page.

Im considering buying the book, but Im not sure what to expect of it. There's both bad and good reviews of it. So was wondering if on Amazon.com, they could show the first couple pages of nuklear age, so you can expect what to buy. Like get an Idea of what the humor's like. If its like 8 Bit Theatre, I would buy it, not the plot the humor. It would be something I could read durring school.

Here's a preview in the news post. Also, it has plot and humor, especially as it approaches the end.

Ignore the stupid bad reviews. They were written by retards who can't appreciate good humor and storytelling

Or people who didn't finish the book because they thought the begining was off.

I liked the begining. It's the trial I didn't like.

Now I feel bad.

But no, the you-know...just...I can't really describe it. Reading it tired me out. I dunno if that makes sense. But the beginning was hilarious, and the end was so solid.

Just that part in the middle, is what got me.

Naw, it can definitely be a hump to get through. Taken on its own, though, it's one of my favorite sequences.

My favorite: The fuckstick conversation.

Which should so totally be this guy's preview page thing.
