it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, lit-fiction, library-book
Read in December, 2010

very few books actually make me laugh out loud but this one did.there is a very memorable cast of characters including a beefeater who collects rain,a woman who works in the london underground lost and found where people bring in things like a canoe, an inflatable sex doll and dustin hoffman's oscar trophy.there is also a chaplain who writes erotic fiction and a 181 year old tortoise.

like i said, it's very funny. but it's not all comedy.there's also sorrow,pain and joy...all the things that happen in life. all in all it's a great book.highly recommended.
