Made me laugh out loud,
This review is from: Thinks (Paperback)
I first read this book in 2001 and have just re-read it with much enjoyment. It made me laugh out-loud: partly because of the familiarity of the setting in a university, the story revolving around the lives of staff and students, with all the human foibles and rivalries being played out to humorous effect. David Lodge is very good at sending up academic jargon. He's always seems to be harder on his own sex in satirizing their vanities and weaknesses, especially, for women!
