This week’s Booking Through Thursday:
What’s the silliest (most foolish?) book you’ve ever read? Did you enjoy it?
I tried to read Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affair and gave up after about two pages; the humour and I were never going to get on well.
I read Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy many moons ago (long pre-blogging days) and really enjoyed it… must read it again one of these days.
Perhaps the book is best summed up through a conversation I had with The Physicist:
Me: What I found really implausible about that book was the ending. How can he … *omitted so as not to spoil plot*.
Him: *hearty Scottish chuckle* So you had no problem with the *****, the ancient religions coming up with a *****, this crazy archaeologist surviving *****, ***** and *****, never mind the discovery of *****, the fact that the American President then *****, that they escaped from the ****** and then that ***** turns out to be ******, just the bit with the waterfall is unrealistic?
Me: Hmmm. True.
