As a big fan of his online strips – I even have an Oatmeal coffee mug – I wondered what his first book would be like and downloaded a sample. The answer was: crappy. Like comic books, the works of the Oatmeal do not translate well to the monochromatic and size restricted screen of the Kindle. I never downloaded the rest of the book, I may not even have finished the sample. Obviously this review is unfair, I'm reviewing a format for which the book is wholly unsuited. But he has chosen to make it available that format and I've chosen not to buy it in that format.
