Staff picks from Foyles Waterloo Station
We've been picking some of our favourite laugh-out-loud books (#LOLBooks), here at Foyles Waterloo Station.
Don't Point That Thing at Me - Kyril Bonfiglioli.
The first Charlie Mortdecai novel reads like P. G. Wodehouse’s evil twin. Bonfiglioli really is that funny, and that evil. Profoundly offensive... Avoid at all costs.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galazy - Douglas Adams
A mans journey to the heart of an absurd Universe. Home destroyed, he meets the man responsible for the Norwegian Coastline, and mice who want his brain. All while trying not to panic.
Whistling for the Elephants - Sandi Toksvig.
A touching and vivid book that is full of laughs. I always wanted a pet elephant - still do - and Toksvig makes their magical world come alive.
The Suitcase - Sergei Dovlatov
This great little novel gives insights into the author’s previous life through items he finds in a forgotten suitcase. It is easy to imagine him telling these stories over a drink in the pub, keeping everyone thoroughly entertained.
Portnoy's Complaint - Philip Roth
A debauched, deplorable, disgraceful delight of a book. Portnoy’s neurotic musings on sex, relationships and his very Jewish upbringing will bring uncontrollable, inappropriate laughter to any commute.
