River On The Edge
Good. I needed to giggle like a little boy and this book was just the ticket.
John Keats, a compulsive rhymer and nitwit romantic, was a great sidekick and added some surreal dialogue.
He made the book for me. I'm not sure if I'd have found it so funny without his deadpan and hilarious performance.
The beginning was confusing but once I got passed the first chapter.
I really liked this book. It is an enjoyable screwball comedy.
This is the most silly story! Wells leads us from one absurdity to another nonsense from beginning to end. Sean Barrett reads it as if Frederick's puzzlement and quick wits were his own : as a reader, he actually is "The Great One" (no spoiler here). The scene in the charnel house had me laughing out loud while driving which wasn't the most secure thing to do. In short, it was a great fun!
NB : I'm not sure I'll ever be able to read anything by Keats after that ;)
