What are your favourite humorous books?I'm not into straight humour, but I enjoy stories with underlying humour. Authors who do this well include: Halldór Laxness, Milan Kundera & Charlaine Harris.
How do you feel about books with multiple narrators?
I don't mind, as long as each has a distinctive voice and their narration adds to the story.
Alainn stepped on the brake pedal of her vintage convertible and hoped, this time, it would listen to her.

A Near-Future Retelling of Beauty and the Beast
Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake.
Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.
To save her father from a five year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.
Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.
Thoughts so far....
