Ever cracked a joke at a silly book title? Made an innuendo out of the name, smirked a bit and yet knew the book wasn’t really about that kind of closure?
Well, ever had a “ha ha” moment where you discovered that the book with the funny name was indeed about … that slightly inappropriate/weird/downright creepy topic. You know, something you wouldn’t expect anyone to write about?
Consider these examples:
How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found
Really? I suppose in this day and age of fraud, ponzi schemes and scheming financial guys this topic seems especially scary.
On the other hand, irrespective of the decade/era, you really don’t want to hear the following sentence – “The serial killer’s last purchase was How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found”.
