A few years ago, a friend of mine gave me a draft of a book to read, called Without a Title. Well, I read it at that point, and let me tell you, it was freaking hilarious. I told my friend to tell me when it was published; he never told me, and I never found it anytime that I searched for it online.
Until the other week.
Yes folks, published two years ago, is Without a Title. Why is this book so hilarious? Well, let me reprint the first few sentences here for your reading pleasure:
Once upon a time in a far off kingdom there lived a beautiful princess who was homicidally insane. She lived in a time that never really existed. It was a time of knights and kings and damsels who caused distress. It was not the accurate historical Middle Ages where half the population walked around with rotting teeth. No, these were the Middle Ages that are featured in animated films with singing forest creatures that appear on lunchboxes in every red brick schoolhouse in suburbia. It was a time in which knights could read, peasants would bathe and the main characters always had perfect hair.
Seriously, how could that not be a great story?
Of course, what I also really love is the large number of puns in the story. Such as Mike Rosoft’s dealings with Mr. Apple. Or perhaps the various… oddball methods of torture. Really. Trust me on this one, it’s hilarious.
All in all, I would give this 5/5 stars. It’s totally hilarious, with a great number of puns and jokes that just make you want to continue on.
Oh, before I forget, here’s the book on Amazon.
