Armed with nothing but the misleading advice given by his drunk father and driven by a fanciful ambition, Bunti, a dimwitted young man, sets off upon a quest on becoming a knight to gain riches, glory, and the sexual favours of young women.

In a whimsical world made up of children's fables, begins this humorously morbid tale of idiocy and courage. Written with an adult audi

The whimsical greeting card art in this book belies its somewhat dark and twisted underbelly. If you are a fan of "Bambi vs Godzilla" -

The moral of the story, which features hikers and a cute, pink T-Rex, is "If your friends turn out to jerks, make new friends."

OR, as we used to sing in Girl Scouts:

Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver, and the other gold lunch.

Describing this book would be easier were it to fit into a specific genre. It has elements of a Graphic Novel. Contains multiple characters found in familiar fairy tales. In places, it is reminiscent of some existential absurdity literature. There is very little politically correct about this novella. Its point is to be read for the pleasure of reading. To misquote Mark Twain, anyone searching for a point to this tale will be disappointed; anyone looking for a moral in it will be SHOT!

Good lord, is this book offensive and morbid! There's definitely a dark humor to this that probably not everybody would take very well.

In a world full of fairy tales, Uncle Jeever takes the absolute worst interpretation of every single story, and throws it all together into a fourth-wall-breaking mess.

You've got a man who wishes he had a son, and gets one by buying what he thinks is a misshapen loaf of bread.

You've got your simple and bumbling, but well-meaning hero, who manages to ruin everythi

Hilariously demented, in the best possible way! This story is chalk full of innuendos and deliciously disturbing vulgarity. A fairy tale for the truly perverse.

Nadarajah mixes his own wit and imagery with Grimm fairy tale elements in this hilarious coming of age story. Bunti's dream (discovered while drinking in a tavern - as so many are) is to become a knight and find glory and enjoy the assets lovely ladies of the world have to offer. A noble goal most would say, that leads this dimwitted man

I wanted to like this one, but it's offensive on so many fronts from character descriptions to language that I'd actually give it less than one star if I could. The format of the book (almost picture book style) belies the intended audience and wouldn't work for any age group. In addition, the story is consistently interrupted by an irate narrator who seems to hate the story (I don't blame him) and the reader and just about everything else. I don't want a narrator cursing at me.

I received The Halfwith Knight for free along with Choose Them Wisely from the author for an honest review.

What can I say about The Halfwit knight?

Uncle Jeever is offensive. Uncle Jeever is in your face. There are times when you can't believe the things that are being said in this story.

Having said all that, the book is hilarious and filled with dark humor. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely worth looking into.

I can't wait for more work by Uncle Jeever (author: Mr. Nadarajah)

The Halfwit Knight is a crack up.
Bunti, son of Gundabar is a riot of a character who's both an idiot and one lucky S.O.B with a million horeshoes up his ass and a rather wacked up dream. I loved this read.

this book truly isn't for the feint of heart or for those who're easily offended. that being said, if you have a morbid sort of humor and love an in-your-face style of storytelling, then this book is for you.

there were a few parts in this story where i actually laughed out loud in the bus and people looked at me all funny. i especially loved the convo between uncle jeever and bunti and what ensued after.

absolutely loved Bunti's whimsical adventure. Filled with illustrations that are random at best and a tale to go with it, this is soon to be an instant classic.

Bunti is my new hero. Like seriously. If life were as simple as he views it, imagine how much joy there'd be in this world. It'd be a retarded world, but a funny one to say the least.

This book by Nadarajah aka Uncle Jeever is laugh out loud funny. It's ridiculous and it just makes you wonder what goes on in that head of his.

Nadarajah brings into existence fairy tales for adults that takes us back to our youthful days. But this is no ordinary tale, for it's filled with morbid humor, while being charming and fun-filled.
