"Polhemus sketches several distinctions between nineteenth- and twentieth-century novelists and concludes that what most characterizes the nineteenth century, from the perspective of the twentieth, is the tendency in its comic fiction to criticize and to undermine the dogma and institutions of religion and to put faith instead of the existence of the comic perspective. Comic Faith is a virtuoso performance of impressive stature; I suspect the book will be influential for many years to come."--John Halperin, Modern Fiction Studies

I thought it was not as interesting as Esio Trot. I thought it was okay. The story was not as interesting. I'm reading James and the Giant Peach now.

What a wonderful story! Oh, to have had the adventures Billy had...though being able to share in them through the reading of this story was almost as fun.

Even though it is a short book, it is amazing. I like it. Imagine YOU were Billy....
