I hadn’t laughed out loud in years, and I pealed with laughter. J.Johnson

From outright hilarious misadventures to subtle nuances of humour, the author takes you on a hysterical ride through life stories. I loved it. D.Hooper

The more I read, the funnier it got. And I’m still afraid of water. M.Berta
