It is that constant bouncing back and forth that kept me interested throughout the book. The anticipation of what historical documentation are they going to place the FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monster) in.
The pictures were pretty good. The pieces they chose and how they presented the FSM in them were great. I looked forward to seeing "His noodle appendages" in action throughout the book.
In the end this was a long but fun read. I can only imagine how much fun the author had creating this book. After all, who doesn't love a good pasta dish and pirates? ;)
Go get the book, it'll be the most "interesting" thing you've read in a long time. :)
