2: Funny, but not that funny
Sure, it's funny and all, and occasionally very funny, but it's not quite the unmitigated chuckle-fest I was led to expect. However, I do like the way the book is put together, seeing as it's a collection of essays, articles, and epiphany style short stories, it does build up very well into a picture of a man and his family that's like a very economical version of A Heart-Breaking Work of Staggering Genius.
