Read at the insistence of my book-loving niece, who traded me one of hers for one of mine. While Garfield comics have a fond spot in my childhood memories, it is one example of comic strips that got syndicated and began coasting with recycled jokes. The best thing to come out of these is the terribly bleak version the internet has embraced - Garfield Without Garfield, the story of the world's loneliest and saddest man.

I am unashamedly reading all of the Garfield comics from my library.

Because Garfield rules.

Garfield Hits the Big Time had quite a few storylines, which is something I really enjoy. Single shots are okay, but the storylines that last a week, or longer, is something I always look forward too. As for the comic strips in this book, they were entertaining, but I did not find myself laughing out loud. In fact, there were only three strips in this book that I had to choose from to display above, and those only made me smile, no laughing.

I'm not sure how long Jim Davis can keep this comic str

Recommends it for: people who enjoy reading Garfield comics
I remember getting the Garfield books as Christmas and birthday presents as a child. They were some of my favorite presents.

I reread them often and laughed like crazy at the antics of this crazy cat and his friends. After about ten books, however, I moved on.

Our girls have discovered this series recently and are big fans, too. So we've been borrowing these books from our local library and I've really enjoyed watching them laugh together at the strips just as much as I used to.

I enjoy reading
