A reading from the book of Snooki

By Liz Kelly

(Courtesy Gallery Books)

I really tried to read Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's new book, "A Shore Thing." As an enthusiastic "Jersey Shore" fan, I eagerly downloaded Snook's first (ahem) fictional work when it was released earlier today.

I wasn't able to get through chapter one. Yes, it's that bad. Somehow, watching a group of vapid 20-somethings get drunk, fight and hop into bed with each other indiscriminately makes for good TV. In book form, however, it reads like a D-list Harlequin romance left to molder in a dirty ashtray. To wit: "...casual sex with at least a couple of guys was also on her list of summer goals."

So, rather than reviewing the entire book, I've selected a few choice passages from the first chapter and used my favorite Web animation tool to create this video (after the jump):

Apologies for the amateur production values, but hey, we aren't exactly Pixar here.

Snooki - book. Need I say more. I doubt this guidette with the built-in flotation devices has ever read a book (comics and picture books don't count)and I don't know who wrote this, but it wasn't little Snooks. The show is a joke but the book is a travesty.

Signs of the coming apocalypse:

1)Birds falling outta the sky. Check

2)Anyone from Jersey Shore "writing" a book. Check

I'll leave the rest to byoolin.
