The overall content of this compendium is good but the forced humour of the (too opinionated) authors is off-putting. The organization is by ten themes with mini-lists provided as bonuses (but why put the mini-list on food books within the "humour" theme?). A single paragraph synopsis for each title is followed by a list of questions that may be useful for a book club group to initiate discussion. The book concludes with an alphabetical index of author surnames and titles.

Hmm. I think I can choose the books I would like to read. Dah, what was I thinking when I requested this book?

A good reference tool for bookclubs and individual readers who are stuck on what to read next. The authors are actually quite funny, which makes the book more than just a reference list.

A great list of books to read aimed at book clubs and people who lack ides of what to read. Actually, quite funny, there were places where I laughed out loud as I read the book. This book is best read in small doses, it is perfect for the bathroom or the guest bedroom.

Get it!
