Does this book deserve 5 stars?,
This review is from: The Interrogative Mood (Hardcover)
Is this book a novel? Is it a work of non-fiction? Is it even a book? What would you say if I said this was just a list of questions? What if they are humerous, interesting, thought provoking questions? Does the book warrant the hype it has received? Will you read it in a day like I did but think about it for many days afterwards? Is the format a conceit too far? Do you wish you'd had this idea first and made a fortune out of it? Is it worth the money? Why is this the first review of the book on Amazon UK when the book's been out a fortnight? Is this even a review? If so, isn't this a predictable and indeed pretentious way to do the review? Is the book worth buying? How many stars have I given this book? Am I taking this concept too far? Who said "yes" to the last question?

Are you trying to be funny?

Would you be upset if I said your review is quite amusing actually but it captures the mood of the book perfectly

Are you damning with faint praise?

Do you think we should stop this now?

Does anyone know where my copy, ordered in response to this review at the start of December, might be?
