Hilarious book by funny writer. Too bad he is not around to write more books!

Ignatius is a bit of an irritant. The book has it's moments when it is funny, but the editors notes pay it more justice than I feel it deserves. It does keep you reading and not losing interest waiting for his next caper. I think in many cases the author was writing about himself.

This book is great! If there is a reader who has yet to read John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunce's, you've got to read it. Ignatius J. Reilly is an unforgettable character. If there is an actual point to the story, I'm not sure what it is, but that's what makes it fantastic. It's humor is brilliant. As a reader, you become so engrossed in the hilarious ongoing calamities of the characters, you forget about any worries of your own. What a treasure.
