Neil I must have stumbled on the wrong list. I thought this was supposed to be funny stuff!

Loveliest Evaris How is American Psycho funny? o_o


message 3: by Neil (new)

Neil Actually, it's a dodgy list anyway. Does nobody at Goodreads watch for this stuff?

P.J. Sullivan "Lolita" is funny?

message 7: by Aubrey (new)

Aubrey It's impossible to take a list like this seriously when there's no Austen on the first page.

Ah well, the same goes for Henry Fielding. But in spite of this, I still like this list :-)

There are books on this list which I've read and can't for the life of me think why they would be considered funny. But then again, that's all a matter of opinion, I guess.

By the way, I too love Jane Austen's wit and (very) sharp pen.
