Re: The "Book" thread.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is hilarious. Anansi Boys by just Neil Gaiman is pretty amusing too. Fat Charlie was just a great character and the supporting cast was hilarious as well. I just finished reading it and I really enjoyed it.
I don't really look for comedy too much when it comes to books though so I can't help besides that.
I'm reading a book by Wilbert Rideau, it's about a black guy who killed a white woman in the south and spent over 40 years in prison for it. It's been very interesting and I love the whole, "Can I believe this guy? Should I really feel bad for him?" aspect that goes with reading a book written by someone that openly admits to killing someone.
