Don't read in public, you will cry of laugter,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Ascent Of Rum Doodle (Paperback)
I bought this book in an attempt to cheer myself up amist a depressing work load.
After a good introduction I went over the first chapters stepping carefully and curiously observing whether this was what the cover promised.
The books grows on you because it not a simple attempt to assemble a host of funny jokes. But better, it is the brilliantly crafted caracters that you get to know that will crack you up. These characters are revealed bit by bit through every tongue-in-cheek incident that takes place in the course of their (parody of an) expedition.
I tried to read this in the tube only to find that my laughter became a scene. So I went and retreated to Hampstead Heath to get the peace to read it.
Truly uplifting and funny.
