What to read this autumn: top 7 best comedy books – Part 2
What to read this autumn: top 7 best comedy books will give you a few ideas.
Autumn sounds like a perfect time to catch up on that reading list. And if you were wondering about some great fun books, really tongue in cheek and able to light up any mood.
4. Douglas Adams was a really brilliant writer and “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” is probably one of the most amazing and fun books you can read. Even if you are not a fan of the sci-fi genre, you will love this one, because it has all the ingredients to make for a genre masterpiece, but also the self-irony and debunking tools to reconstruct all the recycled themes and present a space world and some really far-fetched events in an amazingly relatable way.
5. In 1990, two amazing writers, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman got together to write an awesome book: “Good Omens”. A parody of the traditional apocalyptic scenario, this is an exciting and hilarious read that anyone can enjoy. A film production is being filmed, so we’re excited to see how the story looks on the small screen.
6. Helen Fielding has created a true cult around the (mis) adventures of Bridget Jones, a 30-something English woman trying to figure out life and love and men and everything else, while struggling with the dilemmas of a woman’s life in the modern world. There are several books in the series, but it’s best to start with the first one: “Bridget Jones Diaries”. As the story progresses, you will laugh and cry with the fun and lovely Bridget. You can also watch the movie versions with Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
7. And if you’ve enjoyed watching Ellen Degeneres’s show, you just might like her book as well. “Seriously… I’m kidding” is exploring some serious life issues in a funny way.
