What can I say? This book was screamingly hialrious for anyone who has grown up in the church and understands all the drama involved. The book is composed of one year's worth of the church newsletter from St. Yorick's parish. Each month, the vicar writes an intro, there is a witty cartoon, a children's corner, and tons of other hilarious articles in Plass's classic british humor. I love his books. simply can't get enough.

If you want to order this book, you'll have to find it used on Amazon since
Definitely Plass's funniest book, and the only one I wouldn't have been embarrassed to offer to non-Christians to read. The C of E offers him a lot more scope for humour than the nameless evangelical sect that the Sacred Diarist belongs to, and he can do jokes that aren't quite so tame. I still laugh about the flatshare advert 'due to previous occupant's abrupt departure and hospitalisation.'
This is a fictional church magazine over 12 months, written in typical Plass style ironic humour, complete with misprints and typos.

Amusing in places, even a little thought-provoking at times, but not up to the author's usual brilliance. Worth reading if you like this kind of thing or are a fan of the author - or as a book to dip into rather than reading from start to finish.
Enjoyed this, made me laugh out loud on occasion. A few poignant parts as well. Easy to read and dip into with many recognisable caricatures.
