    Another couple of comfortable hours in Lake Wobegon

    I leave this book on my bedside table even though I've already read the entire thing. It's still nice to have it there to pick in the twenty minutes or so before drifting off to sleep. It's classic small town writing. Nothing too suspenseful or high brow, just the story of normal people leading normal lives that leave me slipping away into a more comfortable place. None of the characters have alterior motives with deadly consequences or double lives in secret agencies. I feel like I could actually meet these people when I walk out of my house, even though I live nowhere near Minnesota. If you like listening to the Prairie Home Companion, you'll probably enjoy this too.

    What a wedding

    Som of Keillor's writing is better than others. This has some of the usual Wobegone types of people. Leading up to the wedding and the wedding was great. As usual, he does get a bit preachy. But it was fun reading

    Typical Garrison Keillor fare

    Interesting story about some offbeat characters in an offbeat Minnesota town. Most characters are quite vivid, and the climax at the lake is one of the funniest book passages I've read recently. I'd love to see a movie's rendering of this scene, although the book in its whole is not particularly movie material.

    Hilarious

    This will have you holding your side and laughing so hard you'll be running to the bathroom. About the only thing better is seeing him do this live. He has got to be one of the best story tellers of all time.
