What's the funniest book you've ever read?

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

There are a few, but only the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series comes to mind. The main character is just so witty all the time; I love his puns and sarcasm because they combine a kind of dark humor I would enjoy, with the Nordic mythology. So cool. Plus it is modern so that makes it better.

Anything by Christopher Moore cracks me up. I started with You Suck: a Love Story because how is that not just a wtf must read title, then moved to everything else he's ever written. If you want a dose of pretend class with your raunchy entertainment, I suggest Fool or Sacre Bleu. For just down and dirty laughs, You Suck or A Dirty Job are must reads. Leslie Langtry also hits the spot with a quirky family of assassins looking for love. Start with I Shot You Babe and go from there. You won't be sorry!
