Not so funny
on 24 July 2009
Am still reading this very entertaining book recommended to me by my daughter in America. Must confess to finding it less amusing than most of your reviewers (apart from when his wife sat on all the chairs in the house to make them 'unclean', when I did laugh out loud). Like the author I am Jewish by birth but not inclination but some of his tasks, like not gossiping, made me think more about my own behaviour. Am just on the last chapters where he will look into the New Testament.
Not sure I like the style but am nevertheless very engrossed though sometimes irritated by his irrational and haphazard approach to living biblically.
