GO TO HELL, CHUCKY DICK!
I might read that next.
Anywho review time.
So pretty much we're introduced to Pip, who is a young orphan visiting
his parents (and siblings) grave. It doesn't appear he knows them very
well at all. Some creepy dude with a iron leg (at least I think he has
a iron leg. The text reads "A fearful man, in all course gray, with a great iron on his leg." But in any case, iron legs are awesome and so this man
gets an iron leg. Even if that mean he must have three legs. So the three legged iron man mugs Pip and steals some bread from Pip which was probably Pip's dinner...for the next six months. Then the three legged iron man contemplates eating Pip but since Pip is the main character he
decides against it but only if Pip finds a few items, a file (considering the time period it's most likely a .txt) and wittles which are actually vittles which are actually skittles. It's quite clear that the seven legged iron giant
man wants to taste the rainbow and discover where Warwick Davis the King of the Leprauchauns is located so he can duel him for the gold.
Creepy dude with the iron leg warns Pip that an even creepier dude
will eat Pip's liver and his heart but not his spleen because that would
be obscene if Pip does not get that .txt file and the skittles. Pip agrees
to get the files because it's either that or there is no story...also the
fact that the guy threatened to eat Pip's liver and heart was probably
persuasive too. Poor Pip would be sad if iron leg man ate his liver and
heart because then the other creepy guy would then have to eat the
spleen. So Pip goes back home (with his sister and her husband the blacksmith) to retrieve the .txt file and the skittles and some tacos.
So far the book is pretty alright.
