Yes, I Named My Daughter Gaylord Focker by Joseph Joel

Hey everyone and happy Monday! This week I read a really short book. The cover isn't all that promising since it kind of looks like it was made in Paint in like, five minutes. But we are taught not to judge a book by its cover so I read it anyway.
This book isn't your typical book, as the name suggests. Instead this is a book simply listing names that are strange or unusual. I won't be doing a description of the story since there isn't one. Instead I will just give an overview of the book itself.
Basically it is a list from A to Z of names throughout history that are weird or unusual. A few of the names have a comment beside them or a short history of the person if they are famous in history. Some of the histories are kind of interesting but most of the comments on the names are a little too forced.
The only other problem I have is the separation of the chapters since it doesn't have a certain way of doing it. Sometimes it gets halfway through the letter C (for example) and suddenly a new chapter will start to continue the letter. It might have been better to make each letter a new chapter.
That being said, despite the fact that the book isn't a true book and it is just a list, this might be a good book to keep by the toilet for those times you want something interesting to read over a short time. I wouldn't recommend taking an hour or two to read the whole thing in one sitting. The names are interesting to learn about since they are real names.
The book is only $4 on Amazon, which you can find at the link here if you are interested in getting yourself a copy. It isn't out yet but when it is you will be able to purchase it at that link.
I would have to rate this book at a 3 out of 5 stars if you were to use it as a bathroom book.
There isn't much more to say about it.
So have a great day everyone and happy reading!
