Genuinely funny books are a delight. The best of them, however, are those that can unexpectedly snatch a chuckle out of you, turn you inner LOL response into a full-blown laugh and make you go “OMG! How did they come up with that?!”
Luckily for all of us comedy junkies out there, there are some people out there who lived the most peculiar lives and gladly agreed to share their details with the public, some others who can look at the most mundane real-life events through the lens of comedy and some others who are witty enough to come up with the quirkiest characters and funniest quotes.
These people are now best-selling authors who are knocking the socks off millions of people, including us here at Top 5, and we can’t wait until they work their magic on you, too.
Here are the side-splittingly funny books you should absolutely add to your reading list:
17.) Calypso – David Sedaris
David Sedaris is back again with his brutal honesty. If you’re familiar with dark comedy, you’ll be delighted by the never-hold-back attitude of David Sedaris.
He quickly sets the tone at the beginning of his book when he frankly shares that the only “perk”of reaching middle age is acquiring a guest room. In his own bittersweet and uproaring writing style, Sedaris recounts bittersweet family memories and lashes at politicians, with the refreshingly brutal and hilarious honesty we all need in our life.
