I read these books as they came out and laughed hard. I lost most of the set over the years by loaning them to people who lost them or I lost them. I also wanted to readthem in order at go so they would make more sense and I would not feel like I missed things. With this book and it's mates i can now do so. These are very funny books. They are light hearted reading. Their job is to make You laugh and feel better, they do that very well. I had to look up some of the quoatations at the start of each chapter, but even that was fun, a little game or puzzle to start the new happenings.
In case any one has a question, YES I recomend this book for anyone who un derstands that comedy can be just that funny. It does not need a higher purpose than that to make You laugh.
