    Do you mean laugh in ironic sense? Cause I hardly remember giving a laugh (coz of funny things) when reading that book.

    The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde. I loved the thread concerning the family's cleaning solution and the reappearing blood stain which evenutally reappears in emerald green.

    To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Serious subject matter but Scout's pranks and innocent observations of the adults around her were hilarious.

    Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynn Truss. I laugh hard when I see grammatically incorrect or mispelled signs, so this book was an awesome find. Her comments on those who never learned how to correctly punctuate are witty and sharp but really, really funny. (Disclaimer: this member makes no promises on her own punctuation or grammar abilities. Just liked the book.)

    Jerome Jerome's "Three Man in a Boat". I was laughing all the way through but the best scene was when they were trying to hang up the painting

    i think i laugh most while reading three men in a boat. it is such an interesting book, with so many funny anecdotes and witty descriptions. i just followed the experiences of the characters with bursting laughter and excited cries. i think this bood stands for the very essence of the english humour literature.

    Wow, I forgot about this thread. Fairly recently, I read a book that made me laugh so hard, I probably looked ridiculous in my favorite coffeehouse (and it seems, from previous posts, that others agree):
    The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

    Books that made you laugh... Mumble, mumble...
    The answer is... 42!
    But you should have read Douglas Adams's books to know why.
    They're really amusing.

    Bye,
    Sally

    P.S.: 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. But the ultimate question is still unknown...

    A Touch of Daniel - Peter Tinniswood

    This book is halirious. I honestly havn't laughed harder while reading any other book. It starts off slow but when you begin to understand the characters it's unputdownable, almost addictive. It also protrays the stereotypical north english person and seeming as I live in that area I really related to it. Sure comical genuis...

    The first Atremis Fowl book was really hilarous, and the whole collection is a great laugh in itself.

    Anything by Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett will always get a laugh out of me. Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, Wilde's The Importance of Being Ernest and Gide's Les Faux Monayeurs.

    I saw a speech of hers once, and could not have laughed harder, as she has such a contagious optimism and good spirit that brings smiles to anyone's face. Oddly, I had no idea she wrote books, but only thought her, perhaps, a motivational speaker through humor.
