Review: The book of the bizarre

The book of the bizarre
The book of the bizarre by Varla Ventura
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While I can’t wholeheartedly recommend this book, there’s certainly enough amusement factor in here to at least intrigue those folks who love to soak up weird trivia.

If you”re of that tribe and prefer to have the trivia presented to you whole and complete, however, you might want to steer clear. Most of the articles are half a page or less, providing only the broadest of strokes; those with a more research-minded attitude might find some interesting fodder, though.

There are a few outright errors or inconsistencies, so if you’re looking for material you might one day write something factual or semi-factual on, this is not the place to look; sometimes those issues make the stories more amusing if you’re reading just for fun, though.

Overall, fun way to spend some bathroom reading time.
