The Red Green Book: Wit and Wisdom of Possum Lodge by Steve Smith

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a gift from years ago, based on a PBS show I used to enjoy watching in the evenings. I was looking for something quick and lighthearted to close out my reading year, and this was perfect. Some of it was dated, and none of it was informative or useful in any way. But I laughed. Several times I laughed hard. I read several passages to those who were around me, many of which were greeted with eye-rolls and exasperated questions of why I couldn't read that somewhere else. It was great.

I can't give this kind of book of plotless comedy, much of it lifted from scripts of the show, a 5-star rating. It would be insulting to my other 5 star reads, but I will give it 4 stars for fulfilling all of the promises it made to me for some lighthearted laughs and relaxation (and nothing more.)
