The One With Steve's Book...
7 July 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's funny, it's entertaining, and it's all about Roger and Steve. I just love it so much. It's definitely one of my all-time favorite episodes from this season.

In this episode, Stan tells Steve his dream of writing a novel, and Steve decides to write his own one. He writes about Roger, and it becomes a hit. But then Roger finds out that he is portrayed as a drunken slob, which he is, he gets very upset. And Steve becomes obnoxious and pretentious with his newly-found fame.

Newspaper Headline: Bush Appoints Stephen King As Ambassador To Terror.

Best part of the episode: Anything to do with Roger.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
