If I had to put it in one word, I would say that this book is ‘freaking awesome’. Okay, that’s two words, but don’t blame me, it’s my shrinking male brain. If you have no idea what I’m saying then go read the book and it will all be crystal clear to you. Dave Barry Is From Mars And Venus is a collection of absolutely hilarious humour columns by, you guessed it, Dave Barry.
To say that this book doesn’t have even a single boring page would not be an exaggeration. It’s that damn good! Barry is a master of sarcasm and more importantly, does not shy away from making fun of himself as is evident right from the introduction of the book. As the book progresses, one realizes that Barry is either insane or a complete comic genius or both as he gives the final word on everything from turkey rectums to alien invasions!
Just a word of caution from someone who read this book during train rides though – do not read this book at public places lest you be whisked away to the nearest room with padded walls and no sharp objects!
