Jason (jasondenness) | 104 comments I did laugh a bit, not too much though. the conversations with his mates made me chuckle. I laughed more at the really long histories of bands, dunno why, probably just found it a funny thing to find amidst all the violence.

C. McGee | 4 comments This post is old but I am new to the group so fuck it, I'll post. Yes, I laughed a ton while reading this book. But here is the tricky part, I had been told ahead of time that it was dark humor. I'm honestly not sure how long it would have taken me to figure that out if I had not been primed to look for it. This seems to be a particular difficulty for dark humor books. Films have so many different ways to cue the audience into figuring out that what they are watching is tongue-in-cheek, a luxury to which books simply aren't privy.
