Wu is a very pleasant Chinese gentleman of few words. Feb 18, Jason rated it did not like it Shelves: Mar 03, Rob rated it really liked it. View all 4 comments. Jul borwoitz, Gary Boland rated it really liked it. And how I buried all of that, which no one allows me to really share without giving me advise-and they don’t know what they are speaking about- that’s tough.

It made me tear up for a second. View all 5 comments. I would not recommend this to anyone.

An Unexpected Twist

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The author writes with a good sense of humor and it’s easy to empathize with him and root for him.

But, maybe, nothing gets through to those folks. This was a short retelling of a unexpeched serious health issue-that struck out of the blue for the writer- that probably deserves a book.

Astonishingly short and rife with foul language. Jul 26, Eva rated it really liked it. He speaks perfect English but he’s chosen to speak it in a very abbreviated, clipped fashion, sort of like Confucius on Twitter.


I know now what I least want to hwist after a medical procedure. Sweet, funny, and intermittently gross. A pithy book with a little life lesson reminder. I’m thankful I read it for personal reasons.

Maybe it’s the morphine talking, but it is the most hilarious TV show I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately none of the language showed up in the sample so I was completely unaware of what I was getting. I don’t, and it seems to me to be a lazy route to laughs. He has learned a great and amazing lesson about what we waste time doing rather than living loving one another.

He got right to the one thing I’ve learned. A great example of what the Kindle single format can do.

An Unexpected Twist by Andy Borowitz

I don’t know Borowitz writing, just funny fb remarks, until this piece, but I and know what intestinal cancers, surgeries and a long ten year struggle with multiple episodes of peritonitis is like. The party had a gimmick: And then I look at my beautiful wife sleeping next to me.

This is not a book! Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Book of Interest: An Unexpected Twist by Andy Borowitz | Inkspill

Unexpecter and engaging short story with good elements of humour. Sep 28, Elyse Walters rated it it was amazing. It’s kind of like sitting down and listening to a friend or acquaintance recount a story of something really weird that happened to them once.


As if telling any of it was somehow looking for someone to care or give empathy you don’t deserve. Throughout the book he has to go into so many doctor appointments and surgeries. Oct 27, Gay Dorsey rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the first of his I’ve read and it was hysterical!

I am totally cheating here. Like one of my trip stories but with a twist. Lists with This Book. I don’t see him affected as I was except maybe that this is so short He also deals with a lot of repercussions from the surgeries.

My colon now untwisted — by hand, the artisanal way — I’m given a hospital room, where I recover from the procedure by watching a replay of the Obama-McCain “town hall” debate that took place earlier that night. May 09, Richard rated it it was amazing. Everything is like four characters and he’s out.

Twenty minutes of full-blown LOLing. This is the best story about someone’s colon surgeries I’ve ever read. I can’t recommend this book more highly. Wu has literally torn me a new asshole and it’s in the front, where assholes do twust belong. I had never read anything by Andy Borowitz, but he is an amazing storyteller, and I plan to read more by him.
