Not my type of hype

(3 stars)

If you like poetry and prose, you might like this. I found it impossible to follow the story due to all the rhyming. I just didn't get it. I might try again at a later date when I am walking or something, but listening to this while at work was definitely a no-go. The reader was excellent, I just didn't care for the story style.

Good idea, poor reading

(1.5 stars)

the idea was great, however, the reading wasn't great and could've been much better. Reader could have spoken clearer, slower, and paid more attention to volume arrangements. Also, the word eaten should be pronounced just as it is spelled. The reader pronounced is as, "ee - in".

cooler and I think it will.

Fucking Retarded

(1 stars)

This evil goat lovers presentation of sheer fucking nonsense is a perfect example of all that is wrong with the world today. It is bad enough that this trash was even thought to be worthy of doing, but the rapid spewing and ebonics used by the fruitcake involved should be available only for God's chosen degenerates and their pet chimps.
