I'm currently working my way through all the J.D. Robb In Death books, and every single title has dialogue between characters that makes me chuckle. Here's an example:
"I vote the classic crime of passion." Peabody, once again wrapped up like a woman facing the Ice Age, walked out of the building with Eve. "Jewelry, cash, credits, plastic, electronics, fancy sports equipment still on premises, no sign of break-in, obvious signs of hanky-panky."
"How does hanky-panky translate to sex? Who comes up with words like that?"What are some books you enjoy for their touch of humor? Name an author who excels at comedy writing. Is there a certain type of humor you relate to most? Leave us a comment!
Please come back and visit us throughout the month of April as the entire team Blood-Red Pencil team explores comedy, humor, and laughter in literature.
