Aghhh.... It'th Thuck! It'th Thuck!
Over at The Stranger, Brad Steinbacher and Paul Constant engage in the book critic's equivalent of daring each other to stick their tongues to a frozen flagpole:
Last week, I started reading I Will Fear No Evil, by Robert A. Heinlein. I am reading this book because Brad bet me fifty bucks that I couldn’t do it. Last week, I was 122 pages in. Now, I am on page 283. I hate this book so motherfucking much.... This is atrocious writing. I have never wanted to quit a book more, but I’ll continue because I am going to win this stupid, stupid bet.
