What’s The Funniest Novel You’ve Ever Read?
As I’m reading through the early chapters of White Teeth, I’m reminded of how much fun it is to read a well-written, humorous novel. This one is pretty amazing.
Looking back on the first 80 novels, there hasn’t been too many books that would fit into that category, so this is a nice change of pace.
I thought The Sot Weed Factor was pretty funny. But if I had to pick the funniest novel I’ve ever read, I’d have to go with Catch 22. Such a great book. I’ve currently ranked it 7th out of the first 80 novels, and for good reason.
Joseph Heller’s witty, satirical style is right in my wheelhouse. Plus, the ways in which he pokes fun at governmental bureaucracy makes the novel even funnier.
So that’s my take on today’s question.
But now I ask you: What is the funniest novel you’ve ever read?
And if you haven’t read one in a while, pick up a copy of White Teeth and read along with me!
