Book Review: Me Write Book: It Bigfoot Memoir by Graham Roumieu

Me Write Book: It Bigfoot Memoir (Book #2) by Graham Roumieu
Like many reclusivecelebrities, Big Foot is misunderstood. In his touching memoir Me Write Book hewants to set the record straight, proving that although he’s larger, hairier,and more foul-smelling than most of us, he’s really not so different underneath.

Only the mostcoldhearted among us could look on without compassion as this hirsute Everymanstruggles bravely with casual cannibalism, Pringles potato crisps, embarrassingmoments with peach Schnapps, the desperate loneliness of personal ads, andphilosophical quandaries.

Readers will neverforget the plaintive voice from the wilderness that howls from every page ofthis searing, intimate account of a man-beast in the promised land.

I love silly clever books that have no literary valueother than making me ‘snort’. When my cousin Sgt. Rock (hey, Tyler!!) whoserves in the US Marine Corp as a recruiter (in the same town as Katie Dalton) told me that his wife got him Me Write Book Iimmediately went out and bought it cause this is my kind of funny.

This is Me WriteBook: It Bigfoot Memoir is the second Bigfoot book Roumieu has written. Thereis also In Me Own Words: TheAutobiography of Bigfoot (book #1) and Bigfoot:I Not Dead (Book#3). The font looks like it was handwritten by Bigfoot andhis prose has the grammar errors you would expect to find from a sasquatch, buthis penmanship is surprisingly good. The art work appears to be by Bigfoot too.There is a cool introduction by Bigfoot’s friend, Mr. Loch Ness Monster fromScotland. There is no way to review this book other than giving you a couple ofquotes from it. This is NOT a book for kids. Bigfoot has a potty mouth as hegives his opinion on various subjects like, stink, avoiding photographers,friends and many other things

“Bigfoot sometimeget called rolling stone. Called irresponsible. Have bad debt. Trail of badlady relationship. No can help. I a hunter-gather. And maybe just a bit of anasshole.”
from Book #3
“Recently Bigfootbuy gun and fortify home with deep pit and fence of pointy stick. Hire Mr.T asbody guard but he startle Bigfoot and I accidently shoot him. He pitying foolin heaven now.”

This would make a great gift for the guy in your life aslong as he is over the age of 13.
