War of the Worlds by Adrian Plass
What a lovely book, bits of it were so funny that it had me laughing out loud. I am sure that God has a sense of humour and He has given Adrian the ability to see the funny side of everyday things.
It is also so nice to have good comedy that is essentially not rude or plan nasty, as so often portrayed on the TV. One sketch in the book that was oh so real for anyone who has dealt recently with a solicitor about a house, is the questionnaire from “Umbrage, Hubris and Strop” - Than answers that Adrian gives are ones we would all love to give, but probably feel that he is being just a bit to honest, in pointing out all the faults with the house.
Adrian is very clever at exploring the heart of life, especially Christian life, and then letting humour, bring out all the more profound points.
Over the years I have read and enjoyed, (and given away as presents) several of Adrian's books, and this now gets added to the list. This is book 44 – week 34 – fiction 40 (10 on audio) non fiction 4
