Book Review: Wilber Winkle Has A Complaint

Wilber Winkle Has A Complaint, by the supposed Wilber Winkle, is a book written by a man who decides he has had enough of being controlled by corporations and begins a complaint letter campaign.  The book is made up of letters he actually sent to corporations to either complain about their products or suggest new ideas and the replies he receives from the corporations.  Of course his complaints/ideas are all ridiculous, and the replies from the corporations are all very serious.  So it's funny.  Get it?

I'm not trying to be sarcastic, I promise.  It's a cute book.  And it's short.  And parts were really funny.  But after a while it was kind of just the same thing over and over.  It was a fun way to pass an afternoon, but I don't recommend it as a serious, sit down and laugh out loud humor read.  Maybe more like a put it in the bathroom read.  Not that I read in the bathroom....that would be gross, right?  Definitely don't do that...and if for some reason I did, I wouldn't keep a stack of books in there just in case!  Nope, not me!
