Funny story: Book Review - Where The Heart Is by Billie Letts

Book Review - Where The Heart Is by Billie Letts

I can answer that very easily, and without writing a novel about it. The heart lies within the thorax in the body. This location is called the mediastinum. The heart is about the size of your fist and is located substernal, center thoracic, superior to the stomach with the apex on the left. If you are going to write a novel, then do some research please. Word of warning. If you are a...

Funny story: Book Review - A Thousand Splendid Sons by Hosseini, Khaled

Book Review - A Thousand Splendid Sons by Hosseini, Khaled

Silly me! I thought this book was about a sperm donor who discovered that he had fathered 1000 splendid SONS!! Anyway, I read it and I enjoyed it, but if anyone thinks that they can write about a man, a sperm donor, who fathers 1000 sons, who are all splendid then let me know and I will help write it. However, if Vince Vaughn is reading this then I do not need your help nor assistance. J...

Funny story: Book Review - Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding

Book Review - Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding

Basically chubby girl ends up getting shagged by two blokes, quite plausible if you have ever lived in London and seen some some of the chubby yet oddly pretty girls that hang around Kings Cross. Anyway, the book, a little more lighthearted than Anne Frank's effort, so points for that. Not a good book to take on tour with your rugby team chums. The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas: A Complete...

Funny story: Book Review - Shutter Island by Dennis Lehanne

Book Review - Shutter Island by Dennis Lehanne

A man, who looks like Leonardo Dicaprio, goes to a lunatic asylum and encounters other people, who all look like famous actors and actresses, which is odd to say the least, he is then either mad himself or someone is playing a terrible April's fools joke on him. You, the reader, decide. Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History by Michael Gillette She invented oral? Wow! I did not know that! Or...

Funny story: Breakfast At Tiffanys - by Truman Capote

Breakfast At Tiffanys - by Truman Capote

A HUNDRED times better than Breakfast at IHOP, Breakfast at Denny's and the ill-advised Breakfast at Waffle House ( the one of the I-95 near Brunswick, GA) - Really? A grumpy waitress, overcooked eggs, and my waffle had certainly seen better days! Also, the bathroom was filthy, a message to the toilet pig...please flush! I would recommend Breakfast at Tiffany's over all these other places,...

Funny story: Book Review - Little Men by Louisa May Alcott

Book Review - Little Men by Louisa May Alcott

This is not a book about a group of male dwarfs living in a converted barn in Ohio. That book has not yet been written. Nor, will it probably ever will. If you can get over that fact and move on, and if like me by Chapter 8, realize that this is nothing to do with lumberjacking midgets or a fetish sex ring in the Northern United States then you may find yourself liking this book. Or if y...

Funny story: Book Review - All The Presidents Men by Carl Bernstein

Book Review - All The Presidents Men by Carl Bernstein

I am sorry, but I make no apologies for this review. Admittedly I did not read the blurb about this book and bought it based solely on the title, so maybe I have myself to blame. I was hoping for a juicy homo-erotic quick read about a gay President and his long line of secret male lovers. I envisaged a President who seduces a White House intern, beds a General and embarks on an affair with...

Funny story: Book Review - The Last of The Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper

Book Review - The Last of The Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper

Sorry - but even though I enjoyed this book - the author has made a HUGE mistake by claiming that the main character was "The Last of the Mohicans". In future he should do his research before making wild and ridiculous statements that can be pounced on by a discerning Twat, such as me. Why, only yesterday, at the mall, I saw several kids with Mohican styled haircuts lurking around the food...

Funny story: Book Review - A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Book Review - A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

I was initially disappointed when it turned out that the Scrooge character was not actually a bad tempered duck wearing a sailor suit - but I guess that is what happens when people try and adapt Disney cartoons into novels. Having gotten over the initial disappointment that this wasn't based on the original Scrooge cartoon I thoroughly enjoyed this adaptation and wish the author continued succe...

Funny story: Book Review - Message In A Bottle by Nicholas Sparks

Book Review - Message In A Bottle by Nicholas Sparks

This is NOT a story about the popular British band The Police and how Sting came to write the #1 hit of the same name. I was extremely confident that this book would explore the workings of this catchy tune. Sadly, it took me until the last page to realize that there would be no mention of Sting and the other two fellows, who no one quite remembers their names, but in the end I liked this b...

Funny story: Book Review - War And Peace by Leo Tolstoy

Book Review - War And Peace by Leo Tolstoy

This is an excellent book. We simply could not have it in our home. It has never let us down. We use it as a door stop to wedge open the door leading to our cellar. It is thick enough and heavy enough to provide adequate safety and protection to ensure the door does not close on you, trapping you in the cellar.....with Aunt Sarah....who we keep down there due to her Tourettes Syndrome, B...

Book Reviews - Charlotte's Web, The Long Walk To Freedom and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Charlotte's Web by E B White Charlotte is not a 25 year old IT expert who actually discovers the internet. The web in question is actually a spiders web and Charlotte (get this) is a (SPOILER)....spider! The Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela Not only did they lock this poor man up, they put him in a jail that was miles away from where he lived and made him walk home once they let h...

Funny story: Book Reviews - Of Mice and Men, The Hiding Place

Book Reviews - Of Mice and Men, The Hiding Place

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck While I initially thought this book could be about mice that look like men (I was hoping Mickey Mouse would be involved) it isn't. In fact the title is very misleading as there are NO talking mice in this book. Once again, NO talking mice in this book. Maybe the author, next time he decides to write something, will include talking vermin...one can only hop...

Funny story: The Two Towers by J R Tolkien

The Two Towers by J R Tolkien

How very disappointing. Initially I thought this book would be about the events of September 11 2001 and maybe an in depth analysis of the events that occurred that tragic day. However, about 200 pages in I realized that this book had nothing to do with the World Trade Center or in fact anything at all to do with the Twin Towers. I read on and did enjoy this book and would suggest that...

Funny story: Book Review - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Book Review - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This book, despite the misleading title, is not about a catering crisis at the 2016 Olympic Games. Where, unfortunately due to an oversight, sandwiches intended for the Olympians do not arrive in Rio, Brasil on time, causing the athletes to become extremely famished. That book, I do not believe, has ever been written. And nor should it. The Hunger Games, I decided not to read in full, as...

Book Reviews - The Screen Comedies of Mel Brooks, Abba Abba, Much Ado About Nothing

The Big Screen Comedies of Mel Brooks by Crick, Robert Alan I don't understand how on earth this book could omit Mel's funniest movie 'What Women Want' not to mention the movie where he paints his face blue and pretends to be a Smurf then invades Scotland. Abba Abba by Burgess, Anthony If you are expecting this book to be about a Swedish pop group made up of 2 women and 2 men who once w...

Book Reviews - The Witches, As You Like It, The Flintstones in the Great Pizza Robbery and Autobiography of a Yogi

As You Like It by William Shakespeare Unfortunately - and quite surprisingly really and in the spirit of the title of the play and in response to Mr Shakespeare - As you like it...no, William, I did not like it. Autobiography of a Yogi by Yogananda, Paramahansa No mention of Bobo, Jellystone park or the ranger, suggest the next time you write a book about a talking cartoon bear who ste...
