    Lathering up before realising that’s not his own hand on his chest.

    Well he got them. However due to a terrible miscalculation of scale. . .

    First review is not kind.

    ‘3 – The middle of the book was like slogging through knee high shit in a snow storm….’

  4. Tom Noir Says:

    @fred – but is it ‘taboo shattering’???

  5. Bibliomancer Says:

    That left arm is way too long and looks like he has three elbows.

  6. Tat Wood Says:

    After his bottle of Taboo shattered he switched to bathing in WK Ice.

    @Tom 4.

    Unless the ‘hero’ of the book being a 100% dick with no redeeming qualities is considered taboo-shattering then no. Looking at the cover initially I thought the taboo might have been his possibly being black.

    @Bibliomancer: That’s just what I was going to say – but you already said it.

    And has anyone else noticed that his entire body beneath his shoulders appears to be missing? It’s not just that his hands are too big, but that everything else appears to be way, way off.

    My dear fellow members of the GSS brigade,

    I appreciate a good bon mot as well as the next person, and I certainly wallow in the irreverence that is GSS. But we must draw the line somewhere. Is nothing sacred? I mean, please, stop trashing one of my favorite childhood memories, the one and only Mr. Bubble! (He’s even got the arm thing going.)

    “The Man Who Wanted Stars: The Harvey Weinstein Story.”

    Yeah, I feel like that when I use the exfoliating sponge too.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    He wanted stars, yet he got motion sickness from the title font.

    At least his three-(people’s-)elbow-arm is now Zestfully Clean.

    That grin’s so big I’m surprised it doesn’t also Ting.

    @THX: Guessing that arm is also extra-jointed, with more bones. He could probably lather up every portion of his back without stretching.

    @fred: The book description makes the dude look much less cheerful. He “sacrificed everything his friends had too”? I see why that first review says he’s a dick and asshole.

    All the reviews mention the poor treatment of women

    If you promise “Taboo-shattering science fiction,” then I guess a guy who has a thing for stars is pretty “out there.”

    Though I’m not sure how the stars would respond to his advances.
