Review of the book The Knight Life-Chivalry ain't dead and Giveaway

This Giveaway is Closed

Good afternoon,
Today I'm reviewing a fun and comical, thought-provoker
which seems to best on the comics page. Not since Calvin and Hobbes has there been
so novel an entertaining in the funnies. All this has been said by The Comics Journal....

I did not this comic strip before I got to review this book, but am now reading it regularly.


With his edgy, fresh, and yes, strange world view, Keith Knight has brought the "funny" back to the funny pages. Irreverent, topical, and always un-PC, his syndicated, award-winning comic strip The K-Chronicles has delighted, shocked, and just plain freaked out readers across the country. In THE KNIGHT LIFE, his collection of comic strips loosely based on his life, he skewers just about every political figure and social issue we can think of (and even some we can't). From "Bush's Shadow(y)Government" and "Biff argues the positives of racism" ("If we didn't treat you folks so badly, you would've never invented the blues !!") to "If Signs Told the Truth" (Denny's: "Serving blacks since 1997"), Knight's musings on life keep readers laughing and thinking. Combining the razor-sharp edge of Aaron McGruder's The Boondocks with the irony of the Farside, this is comic satire at its finest-and most warped.

About the book:
I really enjoyed myself while reading this book, and plus in some stories, I recognized myself.
He writes about everyday stuff, and so we can relate to what he writes about much more easily.
He talks about politics, marriage, grocery shopping and whatever you may do in a day or whatever may be going on in the news. 
And what's more, he makes you laugh even if it should be serious.
I mean he will take a subject and make you laugh.
I became a regular reader of his comic strip.
But this book is a must if you are a fan of his.
You won't be deceived.
He's true to himself, from what I've read about him.
I,ve got 3 copies to give away.
