Are you cursed with a rich sense of humor? So are we!
A wise sage once said the funniest books are also the most serious. We agree.
We also know how hard it is to find a book that meets our standards. So allow us to make that search easier for you!
Here’s our list of three hilarious books for some of the choosiest readers!
1. Anxious People by Fredrik Beckman
Fredrik Backman books are famed for light reading and deep thinking. He possesses a remarkable ability to portray the human condition through wit and humor. Anxious People is no different.
The story starts off with an amateur bank robber who, upon his failure to rob a bank, escapes into an apartment.
But the apartment is for sale, and the would-be bank robber tries to hold the open-house attendees hostage. The plot weaves around a police investigation of the eight hostages–each of them drawn very distinctly in Backman’s microscopic scrutiny of human flaws and eccentricities.
Heartwarming and heartrending, this book is guaranteed to make you laugh. And maybe cry. Get it here.
2. Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
Bill Gates refers to Hyperbole and a Half as “laugh-out-loud sad.” The humor is relatable and sometimes so poignant that it tugs at your heartstrings.
The book is a compilation of brief vignettes and comic drawings from the author’s youth. Her wit and ability to infuse ordinary musings with humor captivates most readers.
Allie Brosh includes a dark side to her book, writing of her battle with depression, which seems eye-opening for some and empowering for those others who have fought their own demons.
Get it from Amazon.
3. Rob Delaney
Rob Delaney has a reputation for being one of the funniest guys on Twitter. He made the leap from Twitter to a book with his memoir that is just as funny.
Delaney lays himself bare as he takes the reader through the storm he is. His struggles can both inspire and exhilarate you with the power of his storytelling.
This is the kind of contagious book that demands sharing. If you catch yourself reading passages out loud to your loved ones, you are not alone!
