Read full description of the books Laughing Through Life:This is a collection of essays, which have some amusing moments. Some even are funny enough to laugh out loud. The main problem, which happens a bit with essay collections, is that there was no real underlying theme. There was no connection between essays, so it felt disjointed. More as if the author had taken a handful of funny anecdotes or musings and decided to just join them together in a book. I’d have preferred a theme of some sort.
The ones that were the most interesting were the essays dealing with politics. As a liberal myself, I couldn’t help but nod my head at the author’s views on Bush and his presidency. Her coverage of some of the Republican debates had me laughing like a madwoman, wishing the rest of the book had the same type of moments.
Essays are tricky things and although I do think these could have been handled a bit better, they are amusing and a quick read. If you’re looking for something funny and light, then this one is for you.
