bookshelves: humor, non-fiction
Read in June, 2009

OK I may say I "read" this book, but honestly, I couldn't finish it. I could barely get through the first comic novel and I didn't have the stamina to finish. Maybe it was just the topic of the novel (a man who works part-time at a magazine about sheds and the "hilarity" which ensues after a mixup of shed interviews) or the disjointed character development, but I found myself shaking my head and wondering what happened to the Lynne Truss I knew and loved? Sadly, I think her writing is only witty and funny when she is commenting on life experiences instead of attempting to create humor where there is none. Truss should stick to non-fiction, or at least stop touting her fiction as "comic".
