Goodreads Info: Douchebag Roulette is the second release by bestselling author Marie Simas. Prepare yourself—this collection will have you laughing out loud! As one commenter said, “This is a small glimpse into some horrible universe, and I love it!”
*Advisory: Mature humor, some adult content
*This book was kindly sent to me for a fair review by Defiant Press.
Douchebag Roulette is a short book (58 pages in all) that only takes about an hour to read. Each story is a few pages long and Simas writes in such a blunt manner that it is sometimes shocking. This is very apparent in Gym Bush, which also happens to be one on my favourites. It was hilariously horrible, but being Irish, I have slightly crude sense of humour so it worked for me!
I particularly enjoyed The Smartest Douchebag and Scratch and Sniff Neil. Walmart Bingo was the perfect story to end with. It was amusing, involving a game that had me reading it out loud to my boyfriend, but was also a story about a random act of kindness that was lovely to read.
While there were some funny moments in this book, there was also a darker, sadder side to some of the stories. So I would remind you that there is an adult content and mature humour advisory. There were also a few spelling mistakes throughout the book which bugged me a little.
Overall I enjoyed most of the stories. I think it would be hilarious to leave this book in your bathroom for guests to have a read of ;) I am interested in looking up Simas's first release "Do Tampons Take Your Virginity?" 3 out of 5 stars.
