    legxleg: Both are zany novels that include genius teenaged boys who wreak hilarious havoc on the world around them. Both novels also have a poignancy that sneaks up on you while you're laughing at the outrageous schemes.

This was a family listen-aloud on our trip and was ok for my 8th grader but a stretch for my 6th grader despite the middle-school setting. Language and innuendo made for a few awkward moments, but the story was entertaining. Oliver Watson has a public persona as a chubby, baby-ish, nerdy idiot, but he is actually a brilliant mastermind of school domination. His inventions and "bat cave" technology rival Artemis Fowl and James Bond, but he is determined to use his power for evil, manipulating school cliques, teachers, and in this story, the 8th grade election which he is determined to win to impress his father who has fallen for his simpleton persona. Definitely a stretch in terms of believability -- Ollie has various government and industry big wigs at his beck and call, as well as classified weapons and defense. Some of this hyperbole is what makes it funny as well as some of the characterization of his classmates which tends to transcend stereotypes. But the reading narrator is so vitriolic and the Oliver's contempt of his parents is so cutting that (for me) it undermines some of the humor in the story. ( )

This book just didn't catch me. It tried really hard to be different and funny but I was mostly uninterested. ( )

I listened to the audio book version of this, and I gotta say that the narrator, Marc Thompson, did an excellent job. He used an arsenal of voices and had excellent comedic timing and inflection. I much enjoyed the way the story was told. I even laughed out loud at a few parts.

The book's political agenda, on the other hand, irked me. I knew what I was getting into from the beginning (this being written by Josh Lieb and all) but, still, I was hoping for more subtlety. That joke was on me. ( )

Ok. Imagine the most annoying person you went to school with. Imagine the biggest jackass. The most socially oblivious jerk. Imagine he wrote a whiny, self-aggrandizing journal chronicling why he's so much better than everyone else. Imagine he had the money to buy the "proof" that he's better. In essence, there will never be a character you want murder more. ( )

really enjoyed this crazy book.

I printed out "A Small Good Thing" by Carver to read later. I will see if I agree with Oliver that it is an awful short story. He says it is a perfect showcase of everything that is wrong with his fiction.

The Basque language is how he describes it.

I like the reason he is evil:

"I am evil because I really don't care about what's best for the world. I care about what's best for me. I have no particular respect for this earth or the two-legged vermin how infest it."

Trout Mask Replica is the third album by Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band, released in June 1969. It is a real album.

Gravity's Rainbow is a real book

I loved Oliver's speech about school elections & elections in general. It sums up a lot of what I feel ( )
