Coffee Dates From Hell by Jim Tilberry | Review

When two single people meet for the first time, they often arrange a “coffee date.”  Coffee Dates From Hell is a humorous fictional account of several very bad coffee dates.  Many of these dates are disasters from the beginning.  Others are destined to be train wrecks if the two people ever see each other again.  The coffee dates include several famous people such as Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, and J. Edgar Hoover.  You’ll also meet a range of colorful characters including a psychic, a cross dresser, and even a cannibal.  The coffee dates include many funny twists and surprises. The humor is often silly, irreverent, and politically incorrect.  The book is a very quick read (148 short pages).  Many people finish it in just one evening.

This is unlike any book that I have read before. It was light, fun to read, and gave me a good chuckle. Some of the stories about the dates were so relate-able, others I am so glad have never happened to me!

Starting from the outside, the book isn't pretty. The graphics used are pretty bad, definitely could be improved, and given a more modern look. If I was simply browsing books, I wouldn't stop to look at this one because it just has no visual appeal. The inside of the book has easy to read text, so if you are someone with a vision problem, this book shouldn't give you too much of an issue reading. It is broken up into chapters about each date, and features a image at the beginning of the chapters. Again, the graphics are horrible, and could be improved. The stories themselves are funny, and gave me a good giggle. They are written in a way that is as if you are having a conversation with your best friend. Very lighthearted.

Overall I enjoyed this book. With a few improvements to the cosmetic aspect of the book, this would get a solid 5 star rating.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
