Food for thought, a playful and edible god who tells the occasional fib and amusing exercises in logic.
Don't work on Fridays and dress as pirates of the seven seas.
My copy was stolen just before I reached the end.
Repetitions here and there prove it's genuinely religious.
I think the book should be printed on lasagna in order to digest it more completely.
Kitchen utensils have taken on a new significance.

The good news is that this book has plenty more bits of material which are laugh-out-loud funny. The way the Great Prophet mimics faulty Creationist logic is hilarious (e.g. all the gr8 supporters of evolution (Carl Sagan etc) are dead - i.e. invalid!). Furthermore, the Photoshopped History, the questions section and the Holy Noodle (creation of the world) are all genuinely amusing and useful for the budding Pastafarian.
Unfortunately, the bad news is that there is no coherence or discipline to the thoughts but, rather, it is a random patchwork of ideas and material fudged together. OK, all comedy needs to free-flow and leap from one great joke to the next, but this book seems to lose its muse halfway through and then just becomes like wading through appendices... Structure would also be useful for reference as I found the jokes I really liked were hard to find again without structure, or 'signpost' titles for each section.
Overall, this book is hilarious and I read it in a day owing to the lucid writing and the way its language makes you want to go eat a big bowl of pasta! However, given that it is a gospel, it suffers from its lack of structure and rather over-bakes its premise (e.g. the boring 'Enlightenment Institute' section). So - buy it, but don't expect an authoritative tome...
