Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The setup is kind of cool. It’s neat the way the guidebook also predicts your future on a small scale but very accurately.

Con: But the prophecy is a letdown. “Nothing interesting will happen to you for the rest of your life. Go home and be happy.” The whole thing seems like a metaphor for a hypochondriac’s visit to the doctor.
