Takes the Survivor concept, throws in some (yes, even more than is already there) testosterone, and creates a story that is a million times more funny and interesting than The Hunger Games. ( )

This guy's inane gibberish shows occasional spirit. ( )

Part of my quest to enjoy, or at least understand the appeal of, Achewood. So far: it's not taking. It has its moments but it's not eliciting any fangirl squeal fro me just yet. Not sure if I should keep trying or give it up. ( )

The best book I own. Period. If you don't laugh, you are defective in the brain-parts. ( )

This is easily the most badass thing ever written. No joke. ( )

Ray quickly finds that his soft life as a pencil-neck may not have prepared him for the brutal, masculine violence the 3,000-man fight promises, but stubbornly aims to win anyway, with Roast Beef as his ally and steadfast supporter."--Publishers Weekly.… (more)
