The Festivus Haggadah by Martin Bodek is a humorous work of non-fiction based on the show Seinfeld. The author relates how the Festivus Haggadah started and how it is celebrated, in the process displaying his extensive knowledge of the show. Bodek explains the prayers and why they are used, as well as what foods are served, such as meatloaf. The book also provides a background to how the show got started and what it involves.
I thought that Festivus Haggadah by Martin Bodek was extremely funny. I think that only people who are fans of Seinfeld will understand it, particularly us older folks. I liked the way he explained how he came up with the concept and how he researched it. I was impressed with his knowledge of the show. The Counting of the Next Festivus is my favorite chapter, as it reminded me of the Twelve Days of Christmas song. I assume that was intentional. I loved the reasons why they used food like meatloaf. This is not for the faint-hearted. I loved that he wrote it in the style of the Bible and even uses names like Kramerus (after Kramer). If you're a fan of Seinfeld, you will get a kick out of this book. I am not sure whether the younger generation will understand some of the references. If you need a laugh-out-loud book to read, I highly recommend this one.
