A Parody of Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Drink, Play, F@#k: One Man's Search for Anything Across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand
By: Andrew Gottlieb
Genre: Adult humor
3.5 out of 5
This was a difficult book for me rate because I feel I can't compare it against ALL books I have read, but rather only the humorous ones. I was impressed with the quality of writing; usually in parodies, or at least the few I have read, are written so poorly I don't enjoy them. I read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert years ago, so it was difficult to determine if Gottlieb had spoofs directly related to her story, besides the title and main idea. Either way, I sincerely enjoyed the story and humor. I often forgot that the travels of Bob Sullivan were fictional, which definitely added to my appreciation of story. However, I found for being a parody the story lacked humor in some areas which is the reason I only gave it 3.5 stars.
