Does anyone out there remember Joe Bob Briggs? That Texan movie reviewer who used to hang out in front of drive-in movies and give ratings based on breast count and pints of spilled blood?
How about Jeff Foxworthy – or better yet, Ron White, the REAL funnyman of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour?
Well, that is the sort of style of review we are looking at here. Glenn Conley writes raunchy redneck book reviews that are NOT for the easily offended. I am talking about blue language, scatological humor and the kind of critical discussion that reminds you of what your basset hound’s butthole might tell you if it ever learned how to read and talk.
Well let me tell you, sewer giggles and outhouse graffiti is just fine by this old boy. I enjoyed the #$@ out of GLENN HATES BOOKS. I read the darn e-book straight through in one sitting and I was grinning by page two.
Best news yet, is the dude digs horror.
I am talking Edward Lee and Jack Ketchum the-chainsaws-are-among-us kind of horror.
About a third of the books he reviewed I had already read and I agreed on quite a bit that he was saying. You see, once you squint past the profanity you are going to realize that Glenn actually knows what he is talking about. The dude has an eye for good writing and his opinions are worth listening to.
I keep a stack of paperbacks on the top shelf of my toilet aimed at short chewy reading material. Let me tell you what. If I had this book in paperback I would set it right on the very top of that paperback stack.
I can’t wait for Volume 2!
