Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    The madness ends with me putting this back on the rack and quickly exiting the bookstore.

    Them’s some quality flames there.

    Given that cover blurb the entire book had better be in rhyme.

    Beware your neighbors, watch your friends.
    Nobody knows where the madness ends.
    A gingerbread sex toy doll may look swell
    But will still consign you to the flames of hell.

    Gavin McLeod is astonished to find that God hated ‘The Love Boat’.

    Nothing quite says “jolly holiday spirit” like a little gingerbread man, his all-too-human eyes silently imploring you to put him out of his misery.

    The directors cut of Shrek got an NC-17 rating.

    …sorry. Got a little exuberant there.

    🎶 Ginger nuts roasting on an open fire
    Blisters nipping at your toes 🎶

    I am so sorry for that

    @THX 1139: shouldn’t have trash talked Usain Bolt.

    I dunno about this cover: sure, it’s ugly as hell, but if the point was to creep out the reader, I’d have to say mission bloody accomplished.

    I rather like this cover, but is the book REALLY about screaming gingerbread men?

    (If it isn’t, and the cover is just a metaphor for something, I’ll be disappointed…)

    This looks like the cover of a cheesy Goosebumps book that has a plot about a teenage boy turning into a gingerbread cookie.
