review 1: It is hard to review a book like this, but I review all my books. It was funny, as expected. I learned a little science, which was not expected. Stupid people died. Some survived. Some are now infertile and can no longer contribute to the gene pool. This book is great to read if you're looking for a no-brainer, if you're sick, if you need a book to take to a noisy, busy place that will not involve concentration or thought, the Darwin Awards books are ideal. It was cute, funny, and made me feel very smart. What more can you ask for?
