Arsenic Soup for Lovers review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to The Kea for winning this book!



I was recently sent a copy of Arsenic Soup For Lovers by Georgia Post to review. I must say that this book was definitely not my regular read!

Here is a bit about the book that I took off the back of the book:

"In a world where few people laugh at themselves, Arsenic Soup For Lovers is the perfect blend of short stories guaranteed to make you step back and look at the world from a different perspective. In this tart and wickedly amusing collection by author Georgia Z. Post, ordinary life situations unfold in a myriad of quirky moments requiring out-of-the-box devious answers to tickle your funnybone."

This book will appeal to your cynical, darker side. Each story is very well written, short and easy to read. The book is packed full of caustic sarcasm, deviousness, and irony. Honestly this is one of the most fascinating... and odd... books I've ever read! Half the time I didn't know whether I should be laughing or recoiling in horror. But you know what? I read the whole book in about an hour because it was just so out of the ordinary!

If you would like to read a sample you can head over to the Arsenic Soup For Lovers website.

If you think you would enjoy this book then you are in luck! I am giving away my review copy to one of you lovely people. Just leave me a comment and I will pick a random winner on October 27, 2008. This giveaway is open to everyone everywhere.

Don't forget to go HERE and enter my other book giveaway too.

The description of the book reminds me of a Filipino writer, Jessica Zafra, with her acerbic humor and sarcastic (yet honest) stream-of-consciousness pieces. Of course, hers are actually essays, not short stories, but you get the picture. :)
