* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Chapter 34, written by the [[http://critters.org/bonsai/ Bonsai Story Generator]], stands out.
* CriticalResearchFailure: See the penguins.
* DancingBear: Let's face it: The only reason to read this book is to see what a book that's written to be deliberately bad by committee actually looks like.
* MarySue: Virtually the entire cast, sometimes with different members taking turns between chapters.
* MagnificentBastard: Between all the different chapters, Henry Archer [[TooCoolToLive (while he was alive)]] was a millionaire businessman, an absurdly successful ladies-man, and a serial killer with a trophy room, among other things. In one chapter, he's also a smug, egoistic ghost.
* SoBadItsGood: Knowing the back story behind the book changes it from merely hilariously bad to deliciously vile.
* StrangledByTheRedString: Andrew and Margaret run off together at the end, even though they've never spoken at any point. Richard Isaacs, who has also never spoken to Margaret, is nearly DrivenToSuicide for love of her.
* TooCoolToLive: Henry Archer
* {{Wangst}}: Quite often.
