Book Review

The Diary of a Nobody (Prion Humour Classics)The Diary of a Nobody by George Grossmith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quirky and so very funny as only the Brits can be, this book remains as fresh as when it was first written by two brothers in 1892.

Charles Pooter lives a well ordered life, or at least he attempts to, as we travel through his days reading his diary. He does not see in himself the pettiness of others and therein lies the humor. He strives to live dignified days of social acceptance, but pitfalls lurk at every corner. His wife and friends are always there to confound his sense of propriety. His best laid plans often turn to chaos.

A very entertaining read highly recommended.
