How May We Hate You? Notes from the Concierge Desk, by Anna Drezen and Todd Dakotah Briscoe

I thought I'd try something different this time when choosing which book to review, and...I messed up. I knew this was tongue in cheek comedy, but I wasn't expecting so much language and crudeness. I didn't even finish it, but I will share some info.

 The book is beautifully bound, with a surprising, humorous twist. Parts of the book are definitely funny, but the snark was a bit much, and the crudeness and bad language wasn't funny. If you have to be crude and offensive to make people laugh, you may be hanging out with middle schoolers. It really isn't necessary. Also, making fun of someone's faith is distasteful, to say the least. 

There are some genuinely helpful tips if you are a world traveler, and I suppose that this book will appeal mainly to people of that group anyway. 

So, all in all, How May We Hate You was a disappointment. I don't recommend it. 

1 out 5 stars.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
