And now, a quick review…
I am not what you would call and Adventure Time “fan”, I don’t watch the show. I have tried but something about it just doesn’t click for me. Now granted I am a 43 yr-old man with two young kids so draw your own conclusions as to why.
So imagine my surprise when I found myself enjoying this book! The humor vacillates from in your face to subtle, and the plot was pretty straight-forward. The fact remains it was a goofy, fun read that I can recommend to both fans of the series and new comers like myself.
Looking for a good laugh? Give this book a try. 3 out of 5 stars.
