Day Twenty-Six: A book that makes you laugh out loud

A joke book? Um, I don’t really read a lot of books that are comedy. I mean, I suppose there must be aspects to books that make me smile, but I’m not really the laughing out loud kind of girl. I’m more of a slight smile, inwardly laughing person.

The one book I remember being funny though is Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French. That kind of says it all really. After all, I find the Vicar of Dibley funny, so why not a book written by the actress?

Unfortunately, i can’t remember a lot of what happened in the book. I didn’t find the book so enthralling that I couldn’t put it down, and they are the sort of books that stay with me for a long time. Either that, or they’re really awful.

However, I remember enjoying it and after refreshing my memory by reading reviews on Goodreads – literally as I’m writing this – more of the story is coming back to me. I think I found it funny because of the over-exaggeration of the characters. So it seemed like a normal family – admittedly with quirks but don’t all families have quirks? – however, the characters are a bit over-the-top.

Some of the reviews are negative on Goodreads and I suppose I wouldn’t put this book in my Top 10 (to be fair, I don’t think I even have a Top 10 – the list would constantly be changing), it’s probably be near the middle, but I think that every book is probably worth reading. Even if you don’t find it enjoyable, at least you’re able to give your own opinion rather than just reciting someone else’s.
