Reviews - What do customers think about Pantagruel Gargantua (Petits Classiques Larousse)?

A Book for Those Who Love Bawdy and Bathroom Humor  Sep 17, 2004

This book is the best one I have ever read for using sexual and execretory references for effective satire. The optimal reader is probably a boy aged 8-13 who loves to explore the world from this perspective already. Older readers will enjoy the social commentary as well, but may not revel in the means of the commentary unless they like extensive references to bodily functions.

The use of the humor in this book is like slapstick is to comedy, its most outrageous and least restrained form.

No one can stay grumpy while reading this book. It may be the only literary solution for depression ever developed.

Obviously, if you can read French, it is even better in the original.

Many people will choose not to read this book because of the earthy nature of the language. That is probably a mistake, because those who make that choice are suffering from the unattractiveness stall, not seeing the swan in the ugly duckling. Earthy humor can be a great way to communicate, in the appropriate circumstances. You owe it to yourself to learn how a master, Rabelais, does it.

As a tip to the reader who has more sensitive tastes, I suggest you skip through to the end of sections that are bothering you. The very next section may well be one that leaves you in uncontrolled laughter, irresistibly lightening your mood.

Have a great laugh!
