Book Review: The Last Girlfriend on Earth

Simon Rich's collection of short stories is a little off the wall.  Sure, it's about love (meeting, getting, and subsequently losing the girl), but these love stories are nontraditional, to say the least.  Take, for instance, a man who is lucky enough to get set up by his friends...with an actual troll.  Or when Sherlock Holmes just can't deduce that his girlfriend is a triflin ho.  Or the opening story that follows an entire relationship from the perspective of a condom.

The entire collection will take you a day to read, and I'll be surprised if most of them don't elicit at least a giggle.  If you're the kind of person who likes SNL digital shorts, you'll probably enjoy this.

3 out of 5 stars.
