Nathalie This IS fun *flashback to the 1970s*

Sandi Very funny. I wish GoodReads would let us save favorite reviews.

Hazel Heeheeheeheee!

trivialchemy Hilarious. My favorite parts are the bit about nothing so female as an attractive young man and the jewel-encrusted laptop.

There's got to be a way you can write a whole book like this Manny. They'd sell like hotcakes.

Stephen Yes, I liked the review for sheer cleverness, but I found the essential message of The Picture of Dorian Gray horrific. It causes all sorts of unpleasant thoughts about what mask who is hiding behind today.

Really great way to do a review, Manny. That was worth the read.

Manny Thanks guys! I think I should do more reviews with Jordan. Though she modestly refuses to accept any credit for this one, and insists that I wrote it all myself...

Rose I loved this comment:
"I realised after a few pages that I already had read it, just not in one piece. It is almost too quotable. But I found it interesting to discover in which order the lines were meant to occur."

Kimley Rose, I loved that comment too!

There are certain books that if you're on this planet for any length of time, it becomes almost (but not quite!) unnecessary to read them since they are so much a part of the culture.

Alan Cheers Manny - my avatar is past its sell by date too. I think of it as a few years old, but then realised my daughter took it when she was twelve and she's 17 now.
Also thanks Nathalie for the 'Television Personalities' vid. It led me to the 'I know Where Syd Barrett Lives' one. Manny - did you ever see him on the streets of Cambridge? Have you read that book 'The Gift' by Fulsfeder - very funny and it features Syd Barrett at the end.

Oriana Manny, so clever and funny! One of your best, I think...


message 13: by Karl-O (new)

Karl-O This is very clever and unbelievably beautiful Manny. It is one of the best reviews on GR.


message 14: by Manny (new)

Manny Thank you Carlo! Though my friend Jordan should get some of the credit, for suggesting the idea...


message 15: by Karl-O (new)

Karl-O Thank you both then. The Pepsi thing was amazing.


message 16: by Cecily (new)

Cecily I particularly like the section where Lord Rayner says "The epigrams are the only serious part of the book", but people will have to buy your book to read the context. ;)


message 17: by Manny (new)

Manny Jordan and I really had fun with this one...


message 18: by Eman (new)

Eman Ohh this is the most hilarious dialogue I've read in a while!


message 19: by Manny (new)

Manny Thank you! But I'm afraid this is only about a quarter of the review...


message 20: by Eman (new)

Eman Never mind, I got it.
