The Diary of a Nobody

by George and Weedon Grossmith

I have alays enjoyed this book. The main character fancies himself to be a nobody...but he is a nobody with aspirations. He finds the most trivial things to be worthy of expounding upon and babbling about. Charles Pooter is the original Basil Fawlty- getting himself into awkward and humiliating positions much to the chagrin of his family.

There were sections that had me laughing out loud and sections that made me cringe with discomfort. A worthy read, fairly fast paced once you get past the dated style.
