Now while this is still strange, there are some commentaries here that are thoughtful and funny. Could be the change in writers. While this lead writer was part of the first one, they are lead here not secondary or third as in the first book.
My favorite in this little collection of stories/commentaries is the "Lostco". A coupon that is void if you cut it out, not good until 2042 and only on even numbered Tuesdays on months that start with H. I loved that! The Hobo camps were a nice touch as well inside the Lostco.Oh and when you try a sample product it mysteriously ends up IN your cart.
The lost in inner space was funny too with the references to old 8 bit Nintendo games. Ooooh and the Troublican Convention...as the sign warns: Disclaimer: Emily the strange has special powers that you do not have! Do not chop off legs with your home guillotine! I loved that she incinerated the Troublicans in the end = )
