Some Genuine Laughs

I wanted a bit of light humour, so I thought I'd give this book a try. I've been leery of dramatised books, but this title proves that they have merit.

I like this type of humour. I could describe it as "audio slapstick". Some moments are sheer non sequitur, which unbalances my train of thought and causes some sharp laughs. The accents are engaging. I'm reminded of <i>The Maltese Falcon</i> and <i>Who Framed Roger Rabbit?</i> The half-hour format is useful, as I can listen to one on my way to work and when I go home, I'm not picking up in the middle of anything.

Overall, an unexpected pleasure.

A knight in dull armor!

I found this series of half-hour radio shows quite entertaining! We follow our semi-clever private-eye through a number of misadventures calculated to deliver lots of gags, one-liners, and puns. Many are funny, though most are just "smilers", and a few are (I think) overdone. There's enough of a plot too provide a sense of continuity throughout, but it's not particularly credible. But then again, who cares when you're laughing?
