Q: What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?
(Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean funny, since we covered that already. Just … GOOD.)
This is a tough one as I’ve read lots of enjoyable books recently, including Child 44 and A Town Like Alice, but if I had to choose I would say it was Alan Bennett’s The Uncommon Reader. It’s a totally charming and very funny story about how the Queen of England discovers a passion for reading and how it changes her life. For a very little book, it had me waxing lyrical about it here.
