Zen & The Art of Stand-up Comedy
This book describes a group of people involved in a local comedy club. The first third of the book develops the characters and the remaining two thirds is plot advancement mingled with stand up comedy narratives. I simply didn’t find any part of the book compelling. The humor didn’t sell me. It is British humor, so perhaps I missed the point. However I was not drawn into the book. Even the frequent sex was laid out (pardon the pun) like the description of the rest of the day's activities. As far as a descriptive narrative, it succeeds very well. But somehow the pieces didn’t fit together to make a compelling novel.
