|Funny and weird.|
The best combination.
- Doughnut, by Tom Holt. Physics can be hilarious. But then, anything written by Tom Holt will be hilarious and this is his best book.
- Good Omens, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. This book has a lot to answer for when it comes to my spirituality. It asks all the questions I had in Sunday school, but I enjoyed the answers Pratchett and Gaiman came up with better than anything my pastor came up with.
- A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole. This books has been suggested as the funniest book ever written several times, and I'd say it's pretty close to the mark. The humor is well out of the ordinary, so I don't think it will appeal to everyone. It's the best picaresque written in the last 100 years.
- Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons. I love a good satire. So many novels pile misery on their common sense-lacking characters that I get frustrated with them. This book turns all that on its head.
- Lamb, by Christopher Moore. This book is on my short list of favorite books of all time. Like Good Omens, this book explores religion through humor. It's more than just laughs, though. The ending is so moving that it gives the book heart.
- Three Men in a Boat, by Jerome K. Jerome. This book is the silliest thing I have ever read, hands down. This has also been a candidate for funniest novel ever written and I'm glad, because silly is vastly underrated.
