    The Best Laid Plans Kindle ¸ The Best eBook » best book, laid download, plans epub, The Best mobile, The Best Laid Plans PDFI had a rocky start with this book The author clearly knows politics but much less about academia or at least current academia The idea that the protagonist was approached about a tenure track appointment a couple of months before the book began and that the position was still open and there weren't a stack of CVs from people applying for that job that the protagonist could just call his old prof and waltz into a tenure track job? Well I don't know what the academic job market used to look like but it doesn't look like that nowNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    The Best Laid Plans Kindle ¸ The Best eBook » best book, laid download, plans epub, The Best mobile, The Best Laid Plans PDFThe Stephen Leacock Awards committee has no credibility The characters are two dimensional stereotypes without insight or growth The metaphors are overwrought thickly slathered usually doubly slathered and flat References to hockey and skating aren't funny just because they're Canadian The dialogue is similarly dull The plot is predictable and the romantic side plot superficial and wholly without dramatic tension Underdramatized too are the characters They are most often indifferent to their obstacles and overcome them either by some unrelated and hence unfunny deus ex machina or so quickly that none proves significant Re deus ex is a sex scandal funny after the many we've seen from politicians?Its political insight is fairly elementary and trends towards the obvious After the past five years how many Canadians are surp

You knowGAH Why can't I just have this one thing to myself? Why do I always have to share? Now everybody's going to be talking about itusing itslobbering all over it and it's going to get overdoneoverusedoveranalyzed this SUCKS YeahI totally didn't feel that when this book became the Canada Reads book I was in a rut not really enjoying the books that I was reading and about to take a trip that would have me in a car for extended periods so I needed a good book but it had to be one that I could put down if I had to I started looking at Top Ten books of lists and was looking specifically for funny books I came across a book that had won the Stephen Leacock award for humour and googled it thinking that award winners had to have someth

    The Best Laid Plans Kindle ¸ The Best eBook » best book, laid download, plans epub, The Best mobile, The Best Laid Plans PDFThe Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis is in my opinion a perfect novel deserving of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour and of every accolade it receives If you haven't yet read it you must right now rush out and purchase your very own copy no don't borrow one buy your own because it will be a mainstay on your bookshelf for years to come Now it's best to understand it's not easy to make me laugh and I'm also a very critical reader despite that Terry had me laughing myself silly with the opening scene to the point I couldn't speak and still break into spontaneous giggles when I think about it And while that side splitting humour toned down th

    The Best Laid Plans Kindle ¸ The Best eBook » best book, laid download, plans epub, The Best mobile, The Best Laid Plans PDFForced predictable humour like a script read on CBC radio on a lazy Sunday afternoon Ontario centric and small minded The author assumes we are as engrossed with the petty twisted intrigue of our political circus as he is He's wrong Could not care less that Mackenzie King sat here or there And the characters pure cartoon fabrication for the purposes of squeezing a cheap laugh from the uncritical reader A hoary Scotsman two PUNKY Petes one grand Dame a beauty some slimey party hacks and a hapless Torontonian culturally lost in the backwoods Let hilarity ensue I was underwhelmed nay annoyed

    The Best Laid Plans Kindle ¸ The Best eBook » best book, laid download, plans epub, The Best mobile, The Best Laid Plans PDFIt's tough to give a Stephen Leacock Award winner just three stars without justifying itOn the surface it's a funny novel with a well crafted plot that ends with the good guys winning the day and the bad guys being voted out of powerThe writing is intelligent and funny and lines such as Ottawa is a great meat grinder that takes in idealism at one end and spits out cynical sausage at the other are delightful So is the description of the sex act between the Opposition House Leader and our hapless narrator's self serving first girlfriend likened to the passing of a private member's bill in parliament I was holding my sides laughingAngus McLintock is an unforgetable and formidable folk hero resembling Don Quixote with narrator Daniel Ad
