Yes Man by Danny Wallace

Yes Man Had the pleasure of reading this book over the past couple of weeks. A film version is due out at some stage this month starring Jim Carrey so I wanted to read the original before I’d see that. Danny Wallace is a bloke from England who, after meeting a stranger on the bus, takes his advice and says ‘Yes’ more. Where that takes him and what he does makes for a fascinating read and a truly funny one at that. He’s a mate of Dave Gorman and has a similar style of comedy (mainly the ridiculous). I’m looking forward to how the film fares up against the book but will seek out more of Wallace’s books in the meantime.

Or maybe someone’s picking off costumed heroes

Watchmen Finished up reading Watchmen, the graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, late last week. For anyone who hasn’t read it, I’d highly recommend it. I hadn’t read any comic style books before but I’m going to seek out a few more after reading this. The quality of the narrative and illustration throughout is brilliant. The movie is out next March and the second trailer for it is embedded below:
