(Three book reviews in two days? What did you ever do to be so blessed?)
Captain Freedom is by no means a perfect book, as someone else’s review on Pajiba plentifully pointed out. There are some confusing timeline issues, it’s shallow, uses a lot of cheap, pop-culture-y jokes, and the writing itself isn’t too polished. Despite all that, I enjoyed it and laughed out loud often. Timing no doubt played a big part, since this was the first book I read after completing the 5K. Rushing through 5.5 books in something like 10 days made me appreciate something mildly stupid that I could easily fly through. I also started it on the first gorgeous, hot day of spring, and reading outside in the sunshine always makes me happy, no matter what I’m reading.
So, yeah. If you like stupid-funny, I guess I'd recommend this. Otherwise, back the hell up.
