{The Underminer by Mike Albo & Virginia Heffernan}

underminer postcard_1.jpg The ironic thing about reviewing this book is that it's difficult to make negative remarks without coming off as an "underminer" yourself. Having stated that, this book has it's ups-and-downs, but proves to be an entertaining read nonetheless. The book uses a "point-of-view" narrative style, which doesn't pose a problem for me, but might to some readers. I happen to think this works much better as a performance...I could easily envision him performing the scenarios, which I believe Mike Albo has done. I was drawn to The Underminer awhile back when I heard Albo read an exerpt from this book on This American Life episode: The Allure of The Mean Friend. I cut the exerpt to give you an idea of what the book is about...give it a listen here . This might appeal to those who are fans David Sedaris' satire. Purchase The Underminer here .
