4.0 out of 5 stars Typically Far Side and Brilliant, 20 Oct 2000
This review is from: The Far Side (Paperback)
I bought this book for my father-in-law's birthday. needless to say, he didn't read it first! I sneaked in and wasn't disappointed at all. I am a Far Side fan, and for the price of the book, I would say it is definitely worth the laughs you will be sure to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars The First Of Many Wonderful Collections, 16 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Far Side (Paperback)
It is always difficult to review a comic strip, and I think a one panel strip with no set characters is even more difficult to discuss as opposed to a regular strip, but I'll give it a try. To begin with, if you don't know what "The Far Side" is, then your life is going to improve a bit from having experienced it, unless you have absolutely no sense of humor at all, in which case you probably won't like it. Gary Larson has an unusual mind and puts a different twist on the common and uncommon alike. Each one picture entry stands on its own, and many will connect with the reader in terms of culture, myths, etc.

This is the first collection of strips from Larson, and as such looking back on it now, I would say that this is not Larsen at his peak, but at the same time there are still plenty of laughs contained in this book and it is certainly not a poor collection. So while none of my favorites for "The Far Side" series is included in this particular collection, there are some very good ones here. You learn what happened to unicorns, how the wife of a werewolf feels in her old age, and a bit about Santa's relationship with his reindeers, just to allude to a few of the strips included. All in all there are 200 strips included.
