A Delirious Summer
A Delirious Summer by Ray Blackston
With six novels to his name, Ray Blackston is probably someone you've heard of, if not read. I love his loose trilogy, Flabbergasted, A Delirious Summer, and Lost in Rooville. They are some of the funniest books I've ever read, dealing with singlehood, the South, and missions. I guess it's a no brainer why I like them! :0)
Ray Blackston addresses each of these issues so well and does it with incredible humor. I love his description of the South (which is too true), his take on being single from a guy's perspective (this is "lad lit", after all), and his description of missions and South America, a land that I know, love, and would love to return to. A Delirious Summer is my favorite simply because it provides the largest view of missions and the missions mindset. I also really like the couple depicted in that particular book. His characters through out are hilarious and well constructed, making all of his books definitely worth the read!
If you're looking for some books that will make you laugh, these will probably do it. Blackston uses his humor to really focus in on truth, something we talked about earlier this week. He does a great job of asking questions and presenting possibilities, but lets the reader figure out the answers on his/her own. These books are definitely worth the money, especially if you love chit lit/lad lit.
See y'all Tuesday!!
