Rum Punch Reviews: Table Of Contents
The Rum Punch Review is a book review that goes beyond I like it or I don't like it to review, holistically (as Dirk Gently would mis-use the word), a book -- I'll cover how I found out about the book, what I think about the way I bought it, what it reminds me of in life, how it fits into pop culture, and more. It's the most authoritative, most informative, most rambling book review you'll ever read.
(Oh, I'll also tell if I liked it.)
