The book itself is not four stars. Quite honesty, Hines if that book had ever been published in the original form, it would have been the last thing of your I read.
That said - what this is is Hines first novel, written while he was in college, and basically a novelization of a gaming session. However, Hines has applied his snark to his own writing, making this a four star read simply for his own comments. Additionally, if you have ever corrected a bad essay then this is what you want to do instead of searching for those polite ways to say - this is stupid.
