Amphigory Almanac: Hebetudinous Humour, Pedantic Prose, & Linguistic Levity: Meet Mr. J based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
All I knew, when I started reading this, was it's a comedy. What it is, is an interesting collection of shorts (short stories), many of them relating to each other, and many stand alone. I think the fact that it is hard to define is deliberate. The author has stories in here which show his aptitude with vocabulary (which in itself is rare to find in a modern book), but further along he reverts to text speech (especially in a list of funny one liners). For this reason, I feel this book embraces all types of readers. But if you love dry wit, and tend to split words (rather than hairs) you will find this collection delightful. Okay, to put it plainly - I was laughing like a maniac for a lot of it. I would call this *intelligent humour*. A sneak peek at the inside: "She takes my breath away. And when I say she takes my breath away it's because she's inflatable. It's not going to work out with my asthma. She's such an airhead but still a doll. She almost killed herself getting her belly button pierced. It's going to cost a fortune to fix with inflation." See? waaaaaahahahaaaaa. This isn't a deep read, you won't sit on the edge of your seat reading it, but if you love to laugh and need a pick me up, this book is highly recommended.
Double tie your shoes cuz this book will literally rock your socks off! It's crammed cover to cover with witty wordplay and acerbic articulations. It's clever, fresh, and breaks the conventional rules of books written before it. Brandon C. Jones (Mr.J) maybe the voice of his generation. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to laugh. In other words, I would recommend this book to anyone.
