5.0 out of 5 stars Satire for beachcombers, 27 Oct 2011
This review is from: Fantastic Fables (Kindle Edition)
As they say: If you liked 'The Devil's Dictionary' then you'll like this. Although these fables were written as satire on life in late Nineteenth century America, and were all presumably funnier then, many of them remain amusingly sharp. What happens when a Moral Principle and a Material Interest meet on a narrow bridge? 'The Flying Machine' is fun: "Well...I have done enough to demonstrate the correctness of my details. The defects...are merely basic and fundamental" says An Ingenious Man after the demonstration. News of the World journalists? Take a look at 'A Causeway'. The good bits are to be found here and there; if you enjoy beachcombing, you'll enjoy reading this.
