Reviews - What do customers think about Emperor Penguin?

Being Taken Over  Dec 12, 2006
Bob loves karaoke, but he has a horrible voice. Everyone knows this but him. He is obsessed with Tuesday night karaoke at a local bar called Emperor Penguin, where he and a group of misfits gather and sing. Bob's wife gives him an unusually hard time about this, and given it is only one night out of the week she should be more easygoing.

Bob's co-worker Osmond is a weasel, a geeky little control freak who is so insecure with his life that he tries to dominate other people. Imagine Dwight from "The Office" tv show only worse. Osmond sets his sights on Bob because Bob is easygoing and kind of oblivious. At first things go his way, but Bob wises up.

Parts of this book are so funny I laughed out loud. Rinehart writes in a style almost as if he is talking to you, and his narrative sometimes jumps from point to point. There is a chapter in the middle devoted to Wal Mart (or Wal Mark, if you will) that is as out of place as the Genesis monologue from the book "American Psycho." Also, the last chapter of this book could have been left out. It stated and restated the fact that certain questions wouldn't be answered and tried to get a little too profound when the rest of the book hadn't been this way. There are some grammar and punctuation errors as well, but a lot of small press books are that way and it didn't distract me from the story.

The shows the characters watched on the tv were funny, as were some of the background stories for the characters. Bob's father-in-law is hilarious, and he had me rolling towards the end. This book is very different from Rinehart's other three, but it is still unique, short, and interesting.
