Which Books Made You Laugh?
I thought I'd throw another bookish question out there because my Which Books Made You Cry? post got a lot of responses. One Day by David Nicholls was truly unique because it made me cry but it also made me laugh in parts. I imagine it's not easy for a writer to elicit a physical reaction from a reader and to manage to draw out both emotions is indeed an admirable feat.
I was wondering which books have made you laugh? Not just a snicker or a smile but really laugh out loud. P.G.Wodehouse always makes me laugh and so does Nick Hornby sometimes especially with his book A Long Way Down. John Kennedy Toole's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, A Confederacy of Dunces almost made me laugh but not quite. Still, it was definitely amusing. So, let's have it....I'm curious to hear your responses and add some new books to my wish-list.
I love the picture above which is of Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward sharing a laugh at home.
