I think Wanda Sykes is one of the funniest people on the planet, but reading her book wasn't the same as having her say the same words out loud. Thorne is just the opposite - probably funniest when read. There's some good stuff here. And free, on Kindle. Apr 27, Binky rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-i-would-read-again.
I received this book on Mother's day from my son. It wasn't his usual type of present, but I am so glad he departed from the norm. During a sunny couple of days in the garden I read it, laughing out loud several times. Really chuckled, with watering eyes because parts of the book were so funny. I am not going to give examples, because that would spoil the book for people who haven't read it. However, I consider this book to be David Thorne's best one yet and I am already looking forward to the n I received this book on Mother's day from my son.

Nov 19, meltem rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Sep 27, Terry Collins rated it it was amazing. One of the few authors that literally make me "laugh out loud. I overdosed on David this past week with both this collection and his second book I've been shoving his first book onto folks for years and that's not good Teenagers, attend me at your very peril! It had me laughing out loud - at least twice But it also contained some quite painful stories, to be honest. I wanted to laugh, to be entertained, but there were some brutal stories about his childhood and youth that left me wondering.
If it was honest and a true account of his life, then it is quite sad. If not, it is in really bad taste. A strange mixtures to be sure. Jul 05, Pier-luc rated it really liked it. Very different from his previous books. It's more like a blend of essays and an autobiography.creatoranswers.com/modules/courts/4644.php

It doesn't always try to be funny, often goes quite dark. It's tough not to try to separate what is true and what isn't in Thorne's stories if it's all true then horror mysteriously follows him at every corner , but it's an entertaining read that shows some amount of literary talent. Apr 30, Mathew Walls rated it it was amazing Shelves: weird , recommendations , funny-novels , ebook. One of the funniest books I've read, and better than the last two which I also enjoyed and would recommend.
Walk It Off, Princess - David Thorne - Häftad () | Bokus
It's marketed as a collection of essays, but if that puts you off, don't worry about it, I think they just said that because there's not a clear narrative to it. It meanders and jumps back and forth and goes off on tangents, but it's more like a novel than a collection of essays. Somewhat reminiscent of something by Mil Millington , except ostensibly true although probably a lot of it is One of the funniest books I've read, and better than the last two which I also enjoyed and would recommend. Somewhat reminiscent of something by Mil Millington , except ostensibly true although probably a lot of it is made up or at least embellished.
It gets quite dark in places, but at other times I had to put the book down because I was laughing too hard to be able to keep reading. If you're not familiar with Thorne and you're wondering if you'll like this, read Missing Missy. If you like that I think you'll like this book. Read Harder Challenge 3. Read a collection of essays.

What I liked: I loved the meandering digressions in the longer essays. What I didn't like: There were a couple of parts where Thorne jokingly admitted to making something up, and that makes me wonder if some of the more elaborate tales we're also made up.
It's still good even if the were! Oct 02, Heather rated it it was amazing. I was literally lol-ing almost the entire time, which was pretty much par for the course with this book, too. I even ended up reading aloud most of it for my SO because it was easier than explaining why exactly I was laughing so hard.
If you are sensitive to dark humor and even a little meanness , I would stay away. Otherwise, it's a funny, fast read that I'll return to whenever I need some levity. Apr 18, Christa Van rated it really liked it. Fewer work related essays and almost no drawings, this collection of David Thorne's essays seem a little more personal and tell of his childhood, his house and neighbors.
There is also the revealing story of helping Simon his work place Dwight cope with a cheating girlfriend. Does David Thorne have a soft spot in his heart for Simon after all? In one of the essays set at work, David and co-worker Kevin are tasked with first interviews for a new designer. The questions they come up with are fabu Fewer work related essays and almost no drawings, this collection of David Thorne's essays seem a little more personal and tell of his childhood, his house and neighbors. The questions they come up with are fabulous and, of course, entirely inappropriate.
A must read of hiring managers. The way David Thorne goes from one topic to the other can leave you a little rattled but you will also be laughing your socks off, and maybe peeing a little. I am not entirely sure that everything in this book is true and at the end of the day, I don't think I care. There is one part in the book that I can't even relate the awesomeness for because it's just a huge spoiler. David Thorne. Making me pee on planes and curse in front of children since Jan 11, Tyler Lego rated it it was ok Shelves: humor.
Was not too impressed with Thorne's attempt to apply his style of humor to the essay form. There were good parts, but a lot of recycled 'bits'.
The parts with dialogue and interaction with others showcase his skill at trolling and making us laugh, but I'd rather see it sustained as in 'The Internet is a Playground". Oct 16, Dougie rated it it was amazing. Being familiar with the author's previous books, I was looking forward to this and wasn't disappointed.
