Hilarious 24 mars 2008
Par David M. Giltinan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book arrived in the same Amazon shipment as "Bertha Venation", a book devoted to funny names of people. While "Bertha Venation" managed to be singularly unfunny, "Bizarre Books" had a pretty high hilarity quotient. Almost every page had at least a couple of titles which made me giggle.

Conveniently grouped into chapters such as Double Entendres, Science & Scientific Theories, health & Medicine, Sex & Marriage, Sport, Leisure, Clothes & Fashion, Food & Drink, The Workplace, Crime & the Law, Religion & Beliefs, and Death , most of the titles included in this book are genuinely funny. For some of the more baffling titles, the authors include a representative short excerpt, a welcome feature.

This book is not for everyone. But if you have a penchant for the offbeat, the quirky, and obscure weirdness, it's good for more than a few belly-laughs.

It would be remiss of me not to include a few of my favorite entries:

* The Art of Faking Exhibition Poultry (1934), by George Ryley Scott.
The author treads an indistinct line between condemning this widespread and despicable practice, and telling the reader exactly how to do it.

* Correctly English in 100 Days(Shanghai Correctly English Society, 1934)
This book is prepared for the Chinese young man who wishes to served for the foreign firms. It divided nealy hundred and ninety pages. It contains full of ordinary speak and write language.....

* Was Oderic of Pordenone Ever in Tibet?, by Berthold Laufer (1914)

* The Love Sonnets of a Hoodlum, by Wallace Irwin (1901)
'Am I a turnip? On the strict Q.T.,
When do my Trilbys get so ossified?
Why am I minus when it's up to me
To brace my Paris pansy for a glide?'

* Truncheons: Their Romance and Reality, by Erland Fenn Clark (1935),
with over 100 plates illustrating more than 500 truncheons.

Admit it, aren't you just a little bit curious to learn more about those 500 truncheons? To know more about the mysterious, mythic Oderic of Pordenone? To sample more of that literary hoodlum's oeuvre?

Perhaps what I enjoy most about this book is the glimpses it provides of the infinite inventiveness, and never-ending quirkiness, of the human mind.

I wish it had more excerpts 19 mars 2008

I really like this meta book - I just wish there were more excerpts from the featured books. After a while, reading the massive lists of book titles was like going to a restaurant and only reading the menu - eventually, you want something to eat!

It's been years since I've laughed this hard 19 novembre 2007
Par Charlene Vickers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"Bizarre Books" contains the titles, and a few excerpts, of thousands of the strangest books ever written. This book is hilarious! It would be a great Christmas gift for anyone with a relatively silly sense of humour.

A very funny "dip-into" book 12 mai 1998
Par Alan Potter (alan@pottera.demon.co.uk) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I bought this book because of its cover which featured a lady who appeared to be from the fifties holding two toads, upside down, one in each hand. It was apparently the front cover for a book about making profits from raising frogs. The rest of the book is simply about weird and wonderful books. Whether they have unintentionally amusing titles, such as "Penetrating Wagner's Ring", unbelievable prosaic titles such as "A study of Liverpudlian water cocks, 1932-1955" or ridiculous authors' names, one of which included something like "D'Bang-D'Crashes" (I'm using my memory here so these may not be exactly correct) it is a very funny book. I work in London, and the London Underground is a very staid place. But I read it while I was commuting and could not help laughing out loud at some of the entries. I got some very strange looks from fellow commuters until I passed the book to one of them. Then they started laughing out loud too. Even if you can't get a copy for me, could you hunt down who ever I loaned it to and force them to return it to me?

You can''t tell a book by its cover. 15 juillet 2010
Par J. Guild - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
To say the least,this is an interesting little tome.If you are an avid reader and haunter of bookstores,libraries or a bibliophile of any description,you will be fascinated with this compilation of titles and brief description of some of the unusual books that have ,first of all been written,and secondly managed to get published over the years.
Who hasn't come across a book wih a title that jumps out at you and makes you ask yourself;"What the heck could that book be about?".
The authors must have spent a long time,probably many years,assembling the titles,illustrations and information listed in this book.I have to admit that very few of them were ever encountered by me .One exception,though was "The Wit and Humor of Prince Philip" that I saw in a bargin bin and it immediately made me chuckle.About the last thing that comes to mind when thinking about Prince Philip would be humor,and little wonder such a title would end up in a bargin bin.
The book is an interesting perusal and will provide one with lots of chuckles.
I have to agree with several other reviewers,when they suggest that it would have been more interesting if greater information was given about the books listed,even at the expense of reducing the numbers.For that reason,I must admit ,I tended to find it a bit laboured and skimmed through a lot of the titles.
There are several of these books listed here on Amazon by these authors.The titles and publication dates vary;but I suspect that they are all one and the same and just reissues of the original book.
