Garfield: Life in the Fat Lane was not the funniest book of Garfield comic strips I have read. I don't think I even cracked a smile and only found a few that I considered entertaining. I find it interesting how Jim Davis is funny in waves. Some books are filled with extremely funny situations while other are dull in comparison. It must be hard coming up with 365 Garfield comic strips a year. I know I couldn't do it. Maybe there will be funnier comic strips in the next book. Let's hope so.

It's been a rough couple of days. I needed some Garfield. This one did wonders, especially the storyline about Garfield, Odie, and John getting their faces stuck making goofy expressions.

I think the coworker who thought I was listening to her thought I thought she was funny.

Good for all ages. Hilarious topic and mild humor the perfect book! So I suggest this book to all ages.

Great laughs as always.
It's fast. It's funny. It's sarcasm and food. Yes, Garfield remains a favorite of mine for the dry wit, the terribly strange family dynamics, the hopelessness of Jon's dating life, and the fact that it always makes me laugh out loud.

It was good like all the other Garfield books.
