Review: American Freak Show by Willie Geist

American Freak Show: The Completely Fabricated Stories of Our New National Treasures
Willie Geist
Published by: Hyperion
Suggested Retail Price: 23.99
The End is Not the Final Word Grade: A-

5 Enders bought. 8 Enders Read. None did not finish.

Concensus: TV host on two MSNBC shows plus the blogcast of his own, Willie Geist puts a real spin on some of our favorite celebs, political or otherwise, that we love to love and love to hate. His keen sense of extrapolating what might happen in the future is too funny for words but eerily almost believable. The take on some celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan and Tiger Woods make you cringe while you chuckle. A few made-up and totally hillarious historical tales will leave you in stitches.

Only problem we found was there were a few points where Mr. Geist went just a tad over the line where humor turns sour. Still, we highly recommend this story for anybody who is a political wonk, history fan or just needs a few chuckles in their life. It's completely fake but oh, so much fun.

Thanks to you Mr. Geist.
