Whatever a few months ago via Wil Wheaton's twitter. Caught some posts here and there, noticed he had a book titled Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded. Love. The. Title. I. Must. Read. It. So I borrowed a copy from a friend and settled down to read.
Scalzi had me from the second post in the book, "Jesus's Dickheads". Mwahahaha. My thoughts exactly. Nearly every post was really funny. I love pointed, witty humor and many of the Whatever posts collected here are chock full of witticisms.
Some of the entries are serious in tone - supporting gay marraige, advice for young writers (and the financial advice could be applied to everyone...note to self...) - and I appreciated those all the more due to the posts with surrounding levity.
Two regrets. 1) would have loved to see more of the comments/hatemail since Scalzi's responses are totally boss, and 2) while I appreciated the thought behind the random nature of the order of collected posts, but I think I would have appreciated a more linear or topical organization (just my OCD nature).
