Funny!! Funny!! Funny!! Funniest ever!!!
on 12 March 2014
What an absolutely hilarious man. I love his wit and the sarcasm. Not usually into sarcastic wit but quite honestly, this was inoffensive and for anyone complaining that he is a bully then get a grip. I literally found myself rolling around the floor laughing and had my asthma inhaler close by, as my lungs got a huuuuge work out with all the laughing. I did nothing all day, as I sat reading and laughing and then had 2 spend time recovering myself so that I could read on. The story of Missey the Missing Cat is priceless and the other emails really are the funniest. And to say that Thorn doesn't even change the names of the people he winds up is ridiculously brave. I ended up reading this book several times, as when my family each came home from work, I selected a few extracts and read with them. They were also in stitches.
Why does this book only get a 4* rating then? There are other parts that are quite boring. Various stories. However, I suppose that in stark contrast to the real life emails, anything would seem boring. However, this said, there are easily plenty of these e-mails to keep you in fits of laughter. This is probably the funniest book I have ever read. I soo wish that Thorn was part of my office team. I can imagine that as well as being a pain in the bum for a few people, he would be the person that makes work such a joy. For his critics, get real!! Thorn offers extremely lighthearted (albeit sarcastic) wit and humor, as a way of dealing with people who just do not think about others. If you could only read one book in your life make it this one. You will not be disappointed.
