There are those who wish that the Ice King would bestow relationship advice upon them and others who seek Jake's guidance as a best friend. Now there's a book that provides such dubious knowledge--and it's shaped like Finn's head! With Righteous Rules for Being Awesome they no longer have to worry about being a smooth poser. This in-world handbook promises to make all who read it a lot more righteous and a heck of a lot less wrongteous.
There are few shows that entertain me as much as Adventure Time does. I've heard all the excuses;
"It's too weird,"
"It's a kid's show,"
"That's a dog?"
Well quite honestly, it is weird, it is not a kid's show, and yes, Jake is a dog. But what makes the show so darn good? I actually don't understand it myself. The amazingness is all in the writing. There's a certain kind of humor in the bombastic and spontaneous personalities of the characters. This certain kind of humor is my kind of humor. Therefore, a book labeled Adventure Time: Righteous Rules for Being Awesome is definitely something I'd like to read.
This book is less actual tips and more of a long argument between Jake the Dog and Finn the Human. Not to say there aren't actual tips; there are, in fact, many. My own personal favorite is one from Jake: Don't eat food that wants to party in your stomach because it will not help you at all. These, my friends, are truly words to live by. Without them, I think we'd all be little more than animals. And that, dear people, is why I respect (and love) Adventure Time.
This is a great book to read for any person who watches Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. You will not only find it hilarious, but also informative (maybe). Whatever you get from it though, it is definitely worth the read and entertainment.
