Yulia Me too, but seems like all of them are soooo funny. am curious to read one of them.. But to vote, may be not now. But thanks anyway. Cheers

Bentley Terry Pratchett makes me laugh more than any other author, by far.


message 3: by Betty (last edited Nov 17, 2008 10:38AM) (new)

Betty Lance Carbuncle's zany road-trip book had me ROTFLMAO! HILARIOUS!

I hope you don't mind that I added my TOONIES INVADE SILICON VALLEY to this list. Reviewers all say it's inventive and a riot! The situations they get into when they escape from the computer into our world are unbelievable! Uncle WOM is a crack-up!

Scroll all the way to the top and look on the right side of the page, there will be something that says find/add books to the list, it looks like another little search box... you can also click on add from my books.



message 8: by Emma (new)

Emma Anansi Boys was probably the funniest book I've ever read, I had some moments where I was DYING with laughter. Princess Bride is an extremely close second--with a character like Fezzik you know it HAS to be funny!


message 9: by Amie (new)

Amie Peterson hey how are you doing guys what is up


message 10: by Steve (new)

Steve If you're looking for a very funny read, check out my book, The Adventures of Jonny Law. I have received a lot of feedback from Jonny Law fans that let me know, it ain't just me that thinks it's a riot!

Jon Bentley wrote: "Terry Pratchett makes me laugh more than any other author, by far."
I 100% agree. I am currently on the hunt for authors who have a similar style . None yet ,however I have made some great finds in my attempt, Christopher Moore and Jasper Fforde, for example.


message 16: by Chris (new)

Chris The best list on listopia so far: really inspires me to read some of these if I get that therapeutic chuckle along the way.


message 17: by Echo (new)

Echo Princess Bride is a favorite, Douglas Adams is cute, but Good Omens is, hands down, the funniest book I've ever read in my life. I first read it during lunch breaks at work, and coworkers were continually walking in on me giggling like a crazy person. (Which they probably decided I was when they asked what I was reading and I replied, "A book about an angel and a demon trying to prevent the Apocalypse and the Antichrist being misplaced.")
On a side note: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was funny? . . . I missed something.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Good to see Good Omens and so much Pratchett. (Got to see Sir Terry in Madison, WI this summer. He's a sharp in person as he is in print.) I'd add to the list the just-released Ballad of Young Tam Lin. Not a LOL on every page (it's a historical fantasy romance), but a reasonable proportion of the the character description and dialogue does anything from bring a smile to one's face, to generate those head-turning guffaws on public transportation. (You can get a free preview on Kindle - you don't need a Kindle to do it.)


message 19: by Richard (new)

Richard Great list!


message 20: by Hakim (new)

Hakim Thank you so much for this list! I have so much books to look forward to now!


message 21: by Marcus (new)

Marcus Matherne Consider trying:

My Status Update Journey: A Quirky In-Depth Analysis of the World from the Voices in My Head

People everywhere say that this book will make you laugh.
"This book will make you laugh", said people everywhere.


message 22: by Andrew (new)

Andrew The Books of Terry Pratchett are always funny. However, I would added to list others books of Guards Series, like Feet of Clay (Discworld, #19) and Men at Arms (Discworld, #15). Regarding Douglas Adams, his books aren't always so funny, but are full of brilliant ideas.


message 23: by Dr. (new)

Dr. I love the Stephanie Plum books. They are uplifting, funny and there is a mystery too. What more could you want?


message 24: by Kate (new)

Kate Arneaux I love the D.D. Cross books. Onions Bunions Corns and Dungeons so fresh exciting and very very very fun read!


message 25: by *Queen Diva* (new)

*Queen Diva* So happy to see so many of Christopher Moore's books out there! By far the best author out there!!


message 26: by Linda (new)

Linda I know The Rosie Project just came out in US but I read this summer in Canada and has to be one of the funniest I've read, right up there with Christopher Moore.


message 27: by Louise (new)

Louise Sparrow Bentley wrote: "Terry Pratchett makes me laugh more than any other author, by far."

Totally agree.

I know humour is very subjective but I have to say that I find some of the later choices a bit odd, I mean there are some books on there that I loved but funny? Not really, though I'm sure they had their moments.


message 28: by *Queen Diva* (new)

*Queen Diva* I agree with you Louise... I also raised an eyebrow to a few because I definitely wouldn't consider them humorous at all. But... guess others did.

Anyone can add books to this list.
