I'm looking for some books to read, I'm thinking a sci-fi book with aliens and lots of humor like the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy but something else. It doesn't even have to be a science fiction book just something with humor. My favorite kind of humor is dry humor.

An Arsonist's Guide to Writer's Homes in New England. Pretty funny, but also kinda sad. I liked it, and its a pretty good book. Look it up on Amazon i guess, i can't remember the author's name right now.

Novels:

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, if you like dark humour. Very dark humour.
Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. See above.
America: The Book by Jon Stewart, et. al. The Daily Show in print form.

Plays:

Romance by David Mamet. A rabidly anti-semitic lawyer defends his Jewish client, while the homosexual prosecutor has a domestic squabble, while the judge is delirious on allergy medications, while a Mideast peace conference is in town. Hilarity and profanity ensues.
The Last Meeting of the Knights of the White Magnolia by Preston Wilson. A dying town houses a dying man who's the member of a dying white supremacist group.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard. One of the masters of dry humour. Requires some knowledge of Hamlet by Shakespeare to fully appreciate.
Can't stop the signal.

That does look very funny, I might have to buy it because my library mostly has old books.

Catch-22 isnt that dark... I read that in 5th grade and found it hilarious. Anything a 5th grader finds funny =/= dark

Harry Harrison's stainless steel rat books are sci-fi with humour (muchos humour)

At the moment I'm reading Alice's adventures in wonderland, i'ts got me giggling.

TS, I hand you the "Worst Dissappointment Award".

I totally misread the title as "Humongous Boobs" instead of Humourous Books.

Thanks.

The Colour of Magic - Terry Pratcheet

It reminded a lot of Hitchhiker's Guide, but in a fantasy setting. But if you want dry humour, you can't beat

Catch-22 - Joseph Heller

Also check out Dave Barry, all of his books are awesome.

I did too! Glad I'm not the only one.


And it's got nothing to do with beng dirty minded. It's The Pit, it's what we expect

On topic though, Terry Pratchett FTW.
