Bride of the Far Side is the fourth book of The Far Side comic strips is a barrel full of laughs. The book is a fairly quick read since there are only 100 panels. This means that it is about one-third of a year of comic strips.

Gary Larson is a master of the study of human nature. And what does he do with this knowledge? Why . . . he draws comic strips to make us laugh. And nobody does it better.

Some of the strips include: a pilot and co-pilot both loosing their contacts at the same time, snake

This is sarcastic humor at its best. Nothing is off limits with Larson and he shamelessly pokes fun at everyone...even himself. I remember the first time I came across a Far Side cartoon and I was immediately hooked so when I came across these books in the public library I had to read them once again.

What better way to try and de-stress than taking a stroll through the world of Gary Larson? Featuring a wider span of cartoons (published in 1989, this features a couple of panels that are clearly from the very start of ‘The Far Side’ in 1980), this has some real classics - “Thunderstick?”, “Dibs!”, “Have any of you seen Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’?”, pigeon-assisted suicide - and one of my all-time favourites - a marauder, storming a castle and shouting “Oo! Goldfish, everyone! Goldfish!” as ...more

As always, Gary Larson delivers. Bride of the Far Side is funny, provocative, and insightful, like all of Larson's books. Unfortunately, as with most comics strips, it's either all or nothing, love it or hate it. If you like Larson, then you are guaranteed to love this book. If you don't care for Larson...why are you here?

Trying to finish up the Winter Reading Challenge from the local library and picked out some quick non-fiction reads. I LOVED the FarSide back in high school and it was fun to reread some of them. Lydia rather enjoys them now :)

Gary Larson has a sense of timing and delivery of humor in his comic strips that is nothing short of brilliant. He is, by far, my favorite of comic strip writers.
