Trisha finished this one recently and I don't think this book stood the test of time well. I think much of the humor may have been very entertaining at the time the book was written (1976) but I just couldn't find the humor in it now.I thought it might be because many of the issues that she found hilarious (and poked fun at) are entirely different today.

or maybe I just didn't like it because I'm not a fan of reading humor like this. Oh well, another book on the list down ;)
