easy to read,
if you haven't read it. Darkly funny, lots of fun to read, easily digested on a short holiday
and it prompted me to go back and read some of their books again. I'd recommend them.
The other fun book I've read in the past six months or so was The Lies Of Locke Lamora - a medieval fantasy caper heist book that's great.
will investigate further! cheers!
I'd also recommend Tourist Season, Double Whammy, Native Tongue and Sick Puppy.
is a good holiday read. Pretty lightweight but gripping and interesting.
the prequel to Trainspotting. I can't put it down, bloody excellent reading. Not light reading necessarily obviously, but it is funny at the same time. I am kind of sick like that, I found American Psycho funny as it was just so ridiculously extreme.
One of the best things I've ever read
by Maria Semple. It meets all your criteria, it's funny and also an unusual story. The author writes for Arrested Development and Saturday Night Live.
I'm loving Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore at the moment.
Also The Circle by Dave Eggers.
nice_squirrel and Ant are bang on the money though.
