According to Plan

We rated this book:

The word ‘plan’ is endemic and ubiquitous, and author Rob Kovitz has decided to compile a lengthy tome showing just how prolific this word is in According to Plan. The book is divided into several sections – ‘plan for hilarity’, ‘I like your plan’, ‘an even more sinister plan’, etc. (there are many of them). Each section is a collage of excerpts from other works – literature, movies, art, photography, music, newsclippings, instruction manuals, television shows… anything. The excepts are recombined in such a way that they hang together, more or less well, in a strange type of narrative or coherency – to greater and lesser degrees. It is sometimes very clever and insightful; at other times it is just confusing. This is definitely not a book to read cover-to-cover or in one setting, although dipping into it in various places may be somewhat entertaining. There does seem to be a gratuitous amount of adult content, which is completely unnecessary and irritating. The entirety is a mixed bag, some parts interesting and some much less so, although in aggregate overwhelming – small doses is probably the best plan.
