Reviews - What do customers think about The Greatest Book Ever Written About Cheese?
A Great Way to Spend the Weekend! Jan 31, 2007
Robbins is weird in the best kind of way -- you never know exactly what to expect, and it usually leads to unintentional laughter. As long as you weren't duped by the ridiculous title, you'll probably find Robbins' take on family life, living in a small town, and Southern oddities to be hysterical. If you're a pop culture junkie, this book has just about as many as you can handle in a sitting -- enjoy it in book form and try to find his latest columns online...
Not about Cheese and the Great Part is Highly Questionable Too Jan 23, 2007
My cheese library is extensive so I preordered this book based solely on the title. You shouldn't judge a book by its cover and in this case neither by its title. It is not a book about cheese. To call it "cheesy" is I think just what the author wants. The volume begins with a one and a half page chapter titled "The greatest column ever written about cheese" which like all the chapters reprints a newspaper column by the author. It seeks to be funny in the satirical style of Mark Twain or Robert Benchley but doesn't even come up to the Dave Barry level. The author thinks the mere mention of Cheez-Whiz and Chuck E. Cheese is funny. I found the writing unfunny and uninteresting. If you are a fan of Len Robbins's newspaper column, by all means buy this book. If you've never heard of him before, may I suggest The Benchley Roundup.
