it was amazing
bookshelves: animals, humour, non-fiction

I don't give out 5 stars lightly and yes, this is a comic collection, but it definitely deserves the stars. I've owned this book for years, and I pull it out at least once a year and just sit back and laugh out loud. You either "get" the Far Side, or you don't. I've had people ask me to explain the humour, and you just can't. (One of my fears when I had children was that they wouldn't get this type of humour but, thank goodness, my fears were unfounded). Larson's humour is bizarre, demented, twisted and so hysterically funny. He's a genius.

This book is extra fabulous because of the additional information he has added, such as some comics that didn't make it to the newspapers and background information on some of his most famous, and infamous, comics. This book is an absolute must-have for any Gary Larson fan, even if you already have most of his collection in other books.
