Very, very funny. Of course, the criminals are so funny that the authors didn't even have to try so hard.

America¿s Dumbest Criminals By: Daniel Butler, Alan Ray, and Leland Gregory. ¿A hysterical book that will keep you laughing until the last page.¿ The story takes place all over the U.S. in numerous police stations, neighborhoods, and highways. The time frame of events in some stories takes place in the early 70¿s to the mid 90¿s. There are no set main characters, but real police reports of dumb criminals, and their accomplices and how stupidity and poor planning can make even crime funny. The main plot was how dumb criminals attempted to rob people and places. This is described in a sequence of short examples. I will diagram one. Exposition: Criminal tries to plot out a robbery. Like when the burglars planned to blow up a dam and flood Nashville, then they would swim in and take all the valuables in the city. Rising Action: Criminal gathers materials needed to execute his/her plan. Like when they stole 300 pounds of dynamite to blow up the dam. Climax: Criminal executes plan. Like when they set off the dynamite. Falling Action: Criminal escapes from crime scene of the crime, or so he/she thinks. Like when they went to find out their explosion did nothing and left. Resolution: Police catch criminal in whatever whacked-out way it may be. The police caught them on the street¿the only ones in wet suits. My opinion is that this was one of the funniest books I have ever read. This is because of the way the authors describe some of the ridiculous things these criminals did. I would recommend it to anyone of any age because it is hilarious and in any event you will laugh so hard you won¿t be able to breathe. This book tells true first-hand experienced tales of actual crimes with dummies committing them
