Funny story: Book Review - Invisible Cities by Italio Calvino

Book Review - Invisible Cities by Italio Calvino

Wouldn't it be great if we could make Washington DC Invisible? Add Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago and Albuquerque to that list and the world would certainly be a better place. Of course I have not read this book, and have no clue what it is about, but I would hope that it is a Science Fiction tale, set in the future where cities could make themselves invisible when under attack from alien invaders...

Funny story: Book Review - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J K Rowling

Book Review - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J K Rowling

I bought this book at a yard sale in Atlanta while visiting my cousin Donald and his wife Audrey. They had been having some marital problems and we felt it would be nice to visit them and maybe offer support. Over the weekend Donald and Audrey just fought continually, culminating in Audrey admitting a affair with Donald's young brother Eric and Donald confessing he was actually a cross dress...

Funny story: Book Review - One Summer by David Baldacci

Book Review - One Summer by David Baldacci

I read this in an airport in Germany. It was an odd experience, sat opposite me was a family from Dusseldorf who had brought a picnic with them to the airport. They laid out a blanket and everything and had sandwiches, chips and drinks....even a flask of coffee! It was pretty strange as there was a perfectly fine food court at the airport, but I guess they may have been trying to save mone...

Funny story: Book Review - To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Book Review - To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

I purchased this book because I had a rather annoying Mockingbird nesting in a tree in my garden. He continually berates my family and is often quite rude. I had tried many times to kill it in the past and failed. I had tried ACME dynamite, a giant anvil, tying it to railroad tracks and shooting at it with a slingshot. Just like Roadrunner in the carton, it survived everything. So I bought...

Funny story: Book Review - All the Rules: Time-Tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right by Ellen Fein

Book Review - All the Rules: Time-Tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right by Ellen Fein

This book works.....basically I followed all the instructions laid down in this manual and within three weeks I had not only imprisoned our noisy neighbor Mr Alex Right, but had cut him open, removed his heart and sent him on his way. Now he is as quiet as can be and we never hear a word from him, however the awful odor of rotting flesh that emits from his garage (where we let him rest several...

Book Review - The Satanic Verses By Salman Rushdie

At first I thought this was the title of Ozzie Osborne's new CD. Well what can you write about this book that has not already been said. I will try. I would have liked to have seen more references to Star Wars in this book, I doubt anyone has said that have they? Okay, well, I read it, I kind of thought it was okay but without the hype this book would not have done as well and there ar...

Funny story: Book Review - The Cat In The Hat by "Dr." Zeus

Book Review - The Cat In The Hat by "Dr." Zeus

I read this book with my daughter, I of course have to give this book a good review, however, and as a side note, please don't let your kids, after reading this book, insist on placing a hat on their own cat. Sammy got very upset when my 5 year old insisted he wear a hat, he was desperately trying to get it off his head. My daughter then got annoyed with him because he wouldn't speak - nor...

Funny story: Book Review - Discover Scotland, A Lonely Planet Book

Book Review - Discover Scotland, A Lonely Planet Book

The title of this book is VERY misleading. Scotland has ALREADY been discovered.....so if you are buying this book hoping to be the first person to discover Scotland you will be very disappointed. It is a functioning third world country populated by ginger haired people and men dressed in skirts. The women all have beards and they deep fry EVERYTHING. There may well be parts of Scotland yet un...

Funny story: Book Review - Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine

Book Review - Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine

I am sure there are better ways of getting to see your kids than dressing up and pretending to be a woman! Personally I see the sub text in this book - he had urges, certain uncontrollable urges to dress as a woman. Which is fine. Live and let live...but don't say it was for the kids....come on....please, he liked the feel of nylon on his legs, the freedom that a frock gives you, the fantastic...

Funny story: Book Review - Man and Boy by Tony Parsons

Book Review - Man and Boy by Tony Parsons

Man and Boy was THANK GOD not what I thought it was. The deceptive title and cover led me to believe that this was the story of an imaginary relationship between a 55 year old carpenter named, for example Colin Hutchinson, who forms an unlikely attraction to an 18 year old extremely handsome boy named, for example, Alan Twat. In the book I was imagining Hutchinson pursues Alan and tries to...

Funny story: Book Review - Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg

Book Review - Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg

This book is about these kids who somehow get involved with Mork from Mork and Mindy! There are a lot of things that happen, including a great scene where Mork PRETENDS he isn't actually Mork at all! Which was very confusing. I recommend my next book, MONOPOLY, if you liked this book. What happens is that these kids are suddenly plunged into the the game and become real estate moguls, dema...

Book Review - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Okay, I have no problem with this book, in fact I love it but, I think the proper term, and politically correct way of referring to dwarfs is midgets. So, please, could you get with the 21st Century and stop offending little people and retitle this book? I expect that there are thousands of midgets who totally offended to be regarded as dwarfs. I nearly thr...

Funny story: Book Review - Looking For Alaska

Book Review - Looking For Alaska

Looking For Alaska by John Green Good book, but save a lot of time by just looking at a map. Alaska is somewhere near Canada. I hear it is a fantastic country, though they never win medals at the Olympics but, as far as I know, Alaska is a friendly country and never been at war with anyone. So if you are really looking for Alaska head towards Canada and then go east. I have devised a new ra...

Funny story: Book Review - Exodus

Book Review - Exodus

Exodus by Leon Uris I have to admit I was a little confused about this book. About 96% of the way in I was enjoying it immensely but then realized it bears no resemblance to the movie version. There were no spinning heads, no priests, no girls possessed by demons and the Exodus of the title didn't make an appearance once. It just goes to show how Hollywood can totally misinterpret things...

Funny story: Book Review - Les Misérables

Book Review - Les Misérables

Les Misérables - by Victor Hugo. Okay, if you can over the fact that this version is not a musical and there is no singing or songs in the book then it is actually not bad. To compensate I hummed songs from the original stage version to myself continually while reading the book. Obviously this did upset some people, my fellow movie goers, as, for some unfathomable reason I was reading thi...

Funny story: Book Review - A Reliable Wife

Book Review - A Reliable Wife

I read this book in the hope I could maybe teach MY wife to be a bit more reliable. It is absolutely no fun at all to come home from a hard days work and realize that your wife, who has been home all day, has NOT made dinner. Instead she has spent the day looking after Enrique the pool boy, who apparently felt faint, and had to spend the whole day in bed, my bed, with my wife - who was also feelin...

Funny story: Book Review - Une vie

Book Review - Une vie

It took me 3 days to read this book but at then of the day I really had no idea what it was about, who the characters were nor did I get the plot. Probably because it was written in French and I don't understand French one bit. "C'est la vie" (Whatever that means. I would suggest, to all would be authors, irrelevant of your country of origin, the language you speak or anything else, that, y...
