Funniest Book Ever

This is the funniest book that I think I have ever read. I still laugh when I think of some of the passages in the book - like the part where the author is learning French. This is "laugh-out-loud" humor at its best!

Funny but Crude

This is a series of essays about random topics, observations of life and people surrounding the author. He is very insightful, observant and funny. He describes situations so well, I was laughing out loud. His descriptions of his time in France and his attempts at the language were especially funny. However, some of the book is just plain crude, which detracts from his otherwise witty writing.

Very Funny

Sedaris is a very subtle humourist. Little by little he gets under your skin. A grin grows to a smile, a chuckle and a laugh. And then you keep laughing. Be careful reading this in public places; people may look!

A book hilarious and at the same time very serious under the humor
A good read, covering parents with very definite ideals and goals for their chilrdren while functioning in a dysfunctional manner, and main character who manages not to meet those goals by any means possible.

Me Not Amused

I read the reviews and bought the book three weeks ago. I still haven't finished it.
I found it unsophisticated and laboured and certainly not appealing to my sense of humour which tunes in to the writings of Alan Coren and Clive James. Sorry but Me No Like.
