Mr. Selfie: A Parody - Book Review

Mr. Selfie: A ParodyMr. Selfie: A Parody by Dan Zevin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published October 6th 2015 by Three Rivers Press

For Mr. Selfie, every op is a photo op—as long as he is the one in front of the lens. And also behind it! He risks his job taking selfies at work. He risks his life taking selfies at the zoo. And whenever he feels romantic, he whips out his selfie stick and sexts that special someone: himself. 
Do you know someone with no selfie-control? Then you'll love Mr. Selfie as much as Mr. Selfie does!

Meet his friends Little Miss Overshare, Mr. Humblebrag and Little Miss Basic!

It's funny because it's true.
Which, of course, makes it very sad.

Some people really are that obsessed with themselves. And unfortunately a lot of people have been injured trying to take a selfie.

That being said, this book is pretty hilarious. Especially when you start thinking of all the people it reminds you of.
You know, the ones who feel the need to post pictures of themselves first thing in the morning to wish everyone a Happy Whatever-Day-It-Might-Be.

This may be a parody but it's also a mirror of what the world is becoming. Just because you can take a picture doesn't mean you have to.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
