Third in the collection of Gary Larson's very off-beat cartoons. I love em, but the more you read the more brain spins.
blah blah blah PUNCHLINE blah blah blah

I love Larson in a purely platonic and not at all creepy way.

When I was working in any of the many bookstores where I was employed and I did not want (or have the time) to read my current book, I would grab one of these collections to read on my too short break. I slowly but surely worked my way through several series. These are great time killers and will usually improve your mood no matter how hectic the day. Laughter can be the best solution to dealing with the public.

This cover just makes me laugh. The carttons inside keep me laughing.
As always, Gary Larson delivers. In Search 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?

Not as funny as Garfield. ***

***This is his review so I will let it stand, even if he is very, very wrong. And I will refrain from mentioning that he's eight and probably doesn't have the life experience to fully comprehend Larson's brilliance.
Enjoyed reading this while watching TV. Gary Larson is always funny and I love how sometimes you have to look carefully to get the joke.
