I have read it three times.
Each time I laughed very hard.
I do think of it as a bit of a Rohrschact test, though. If bad things are happening in your life, it may not be the best time to read it.
noted by others.
I would add Huck Finn, A Son of the Circus, and all things written by Jack Handey.
Also, a few by Roddy Doyle.
I laughed harder at Lamb than any book I've ever read.
I lost track of how many times I actually stopped mid-page and put the book down so I could finish laughing.
It's the only thing I've read from him, and I'm in the distinct minority, though.
Also very good stuff from Moore.
Fool is great, just for the various ways he phrases his Shakespearean insults. I really enjoyed Sacre Bleu, too.
Because I just re-read Bill Bryson's In a Sunburned Country and was grinning through most of it. But for fiction...Catch 22.
I highly recommend any of his audiobooks that he narrates. He strikes the perfect tone for that type of humor.
I am laughing just thinking about the book.
---that would be LOL in today's form- at parts of it. The court martial scene is one of my favorites.
Ok, I didn't actually read the whole thing...and the more I learn, the less funny it becomes. But you get the point.
and by that I mean ripping off other people's jokes, pretending they are your own, and trying to make everyone believe that the ripped off material is better than the original idea.
