Wonderful Gentle humour - an excellent funny novel,
This review is from: Lucky Jim (Popular Penguins) (Mass Market Paperback)
Jim is an English University lecturer to who despite all his attempts to the contrary, ends up in the most hilarious and ridiculous situations.
I first read this book when I was feeling really down, and it is one of the few I've ever read that made me laugh out aloud!
An excellent classic novel. The rest of the Kingsley Amis books are not a patch on this one. If you enjoy this, I'd suggest you also try "Changing Places" by David Lodge.
Highly recommended !
PS. Did you know in a competition to describe England in the vein of "As American as Apple Pie", the winner was "As English as possible in the circumstances".
