The Areas of My Expertise


This review may be a little weird. I read it solely while either getting heat or ice at physical therapy. I loved it. It’s ridiculous, in the way the best Monty Python skits are ridiculous. It’s smart, well-written and extremely sly. The jokes are constant, and really really funny. If you think the following things and people are funny: Dave Eggers, Good Omens, McSweeney’s or, The Onion, you’ll love this book. Now I have to find something else to read while getting cooked, frozen and electrocuted. I’ve been reading The Meaning Of Everything, which is really good (almost done… can’t wait to see how it turns out! do they finish the dictionary??!!), but dense. It takes concentration to read, which I don’t really have when being tortured… any suggestions?

  1. I like reading stuff by Bernard Cornwell. It doesn’t take that much concentration to read and plenty of blood and guts.
