Publisher's Summary

One of them is a best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist. The other is a winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor. Together, they form the League of Comic Justice, battling evildoers in the name of... Okay, we made that line up. What they do form is a writing team of pure comic genius, and they will have you laughing like idiots.
Philip Horkman is a happy man - the owner of a pet store called The Wine Shop, and on Sundays a referee for kids' soccer. Jeffrey Peckerman is the sole sane person in a world filled with goddamned jerks and morons, and he's having a really bad day. The two of them are about to collide in a swiftly escalating series of events that will send them running for their lives, pursued by the police, soldiers, terrorists, subversives, bears, and a man dressed as Chuck E. Cheese.
Where that all takes them you can't begin to guess, but the literary journey there is a masterpiece of inspiration and mayhem. But what else would you expect from the League of Comic Justice?

Funny Books Are Rare and This One Is Rare

What made the experience of listening to Lunatics the most enjoyable?

The story is outlandish and adeptly done with two separate narrations. Moreover, I think this is a stunt format, whereby the two authors separately wrote their parts. They also do the narration.

What's funny about this book? The story starts as a commonplace squabble between two polar opposite characters. Hilarity ensues when they unwittingly go about changing the world through no fault of their own.

Barry has written some funny novels. This is a good companion to his work.

Warning ! may cause uncontrollable laughter

If you could sum up Lunatics in three words, what would they be?


Who was your favorite character and why?

Peckerman! I know this guy

What does Dave Barry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Definitely the delivery! I have recommended this to several friends and told them to get the audio version! I am a voracious reader but this one MUST be heard,

If you could rename Lunatics, what would you call it?

and then I said....

Any additional comments?

Persons suffering from weak bladders should definitely exercise caution when listening to this audio! If you are listening while walking or riding public transportation you will definitely find people moving away from you...which may be a good thing..I'm just saying...
