And then the stories he (or, uh, the Kabobbys) tells are hysterically funny. When Ted takes on these different characters he has different problems and different voices for each of them but still with the special Ted style of writing (Larry!).
I have given out the Letters From A Nut books to many friends who are depressed or in the hospital because the laughter they derive is so healing. I'll bet this one could have the same effect.
Bottom line -- you will laugh if you buy this book, guaranteed! I am giving some for Christmas. Enjoy!
Now, in response to the first review...This book is full of replies. In fact, it is mainly all replies--replies to junk mail. Ok, so that's not what was intended by the reviewer, but it is a point worth making. However, there are replies to Mr. Nancy's letters. There are series of letters from Muldoon's footwear, the Cordon Bleu school, Dr. Katz the breath doctor, a trade school, some Canadian ministry of something or other-- and a killer respnose to Colonelissimo Tazmak from T.Rowe Price to end the book on a great note (if the reader has been paying attention). I'm not sure if the first reviewer read the whole book or read it with any comprehension of what it is really about. I suggest reading the forward first for some context.
I'm sure Ted could write another straight letters book. "More Extra Nutty"?? "More More Nutty"? The point is, Ted has told us even by his titles that he's had enough of that genre. It was getting a bit ridiculous. Ted has moved on. His audience should move on. It is mean spritied and short sighted to slam Mr. Nancy for not writing the same book over and over again. I support Ted and will always give him the benefit of the doubt by reading his work with an open mind. Once through with the book, I will make a judgment, and my judgment on this book is that it is very funny, and it is unique in the extreme. This book is ingenious and indicative of the crazed thought we expect from Mr. Nancy.
It is so funny I couldn't put it down and when I finished I wanted more.
I hope that Ted writes some more books and fast because laughter is an amazing cure all.
Thank you Ted L. Nancy!!!!
