    "Hawn's writing is the only joke here. Her reddit humor doesn't work. I appreciate good comedy, and I didn't find it here."

    "This book and series are both amazing! Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy has such a mockery style to the view of aliens. Everything is just as crazy there, but on an entire universe scale."

    "The title caught my attention first, then the blurb on the back explained it too fast and I almost lost interest...but I'm glad I decided to read it anyway! It is a super tense thriller, in a way you wouldn't expect a book from the early 1900s to still hit you as a modern day reader. It's a very good book, and weird title is fortunate as it grabs your attention in the way "1908 book by Mr. Chesterton" wouldn't. "

    "I love oddball books with interesting names. Well, Shit my History Teacher DID NOT tell me! definitely sparked my interest! However, once you get past the weird name, it's an ok book. It kinda relies upon shock though and didn't have anything really substantial. "

    "The title, "It", isn't really all that odd. A title like, "Living with Crazy Buttocks" or "Pet's with Tourette's do more to capture my attention. However, the book with the oddest title that I've seen lately is “Learning to Play With a Lion's Testicles” by Melissa Haynes -- Now, that a book with an odd title."
