Gil's All Fright Night Diner

"GIL'S ALL FRIGHT DINER is one of the funniest books I've ever read and I was truly sorry to see it end. My one solace is that with this review I might share some of that wonderful experience with others. Pick this one and I guarantee by the time you finish it, you'll be writing to thank me. So ahead of time, you're welcome."
i finished the book this morning. an excellent, quick (too quick), enjoyable read. i recommend it to anyone who likes the comically absurd. my favorite part of the book (and there are many) is the evil spirit possessed Magic 8 Ball that likes to watch Bonanza. oh, and the spectral little dog was cute. Earl may be a skinny, shy vamp but i think he is adorable. this is my first edition to the:
punk penguin book club
oprah, eat your heart out!

A. Lee Martinez here. I know, I know. You don't really know if it's me. But as I've said before, so far no one has pretended to be me. Don't see why they'd bother just yet. I'm relatively, obscurely famous in a very minor way.

Just wanted to thank you for the nice book review. And I'm honored to be the first entry in your book club. Today, the Punk Penguin Book Club. Tomorrow, the world.

Hey, I gotta start somewhere.

Oh, and just to avoid any Oprah-esque book club unpleasantness, I'd like to say in advance that everything in the story is %100 true.
