Journal Entry 2 by futurecat at Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Wednesday, July 06, 2011
I was a bit worried this was going to be like so many "humorous" books and be trying so hard to be funny, but it's actually just sweetly amusing without being too forced. It tells the story of Hosea Funk, a small town mayor obsessed with winning the title of smallest town in Canada (if only people would stop dying or having babies, shifting the population away from the ideal figure of 1500), and his assistant Knute (yes, weird names abound), recently returned to the town with her daughter Summer Feelin' (see, told you so!).

Not the best book I've read recently, but nice light entertainment for an afternoon beside the fire.
