The Most Boring Book Ever Written by Daniel Pitts and Rudolf Kerkhoven

I came across The Most Boring Book Ever Written when I was contributing to the Amazon "Meet the Authors" forum whilst promoting Julia's Room a number of weeks ago and couldn't resist downloading it to see if it lived up to its title. Well, it does and it doesn't.

It does because the content of the book is tedious in the extreme: for example the first section of the book leads to the decision whether to turn off the alarm clock or hit the snooze button and stay in bed a little bit longer and subsequent decisions are of a similar nature. However the construction of the book and the fact that it is the reader making the decisions makes it interesting. The book uses the internet to make it interactive and when I got to the end I went back to the beginning and made different decisions to see what would happen; but then I got bored with it and didn't follow through for the second time.

In places the book is very funny and at times you just laugh out loud at the sheer banality of life. Unusual, amusing, not really boring and worth a look especially if it's free (which mine wasn't).
