Open a joke book, read the text, laugh a lot. This is very simple.

Open a Fiction Comedy book, live through it, cry-laugh, exclaim-giggle, question-chuckle, get surprised – cackle, ha-ha. The following list are some of these amazingly hilarious books, popularly recommended to readers in search for a touch of humor. We have considered one book for each author, but some of these authors specifically Terry Pratchet, and Douglas Adams have produced some more beautiful fiction comedy books.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Benign observations and malevolently humorous implementations by Adam sends one drifting, thinking how important little things are, such as knowing where your towel is. Arthur Dent is saved by his friend Ford Prefect, who is neither a car nor a human, moments before Earth faces its destruction. Ford is working on a travel guide-cum-encyclopedia for interstellar travelers, while travelling on a ship stolen by the President of the Galaxy, another escapee human and Marvin- a robot who can feel but chooses to be in despair all the time. It is an adventure, a guide which seemingly could help you across the galaxy, and certainly on Earth yet to be destroyed.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Gwendolean and Cecily are arch rivals and the tinge of woman jealousy fills the distance between them. Jack Wothing has posed as Ernest to make Gwendolean fall for him while Algernon has done the same with Jack’s ward, Cecily. Now all four visit Jack’s country home and a chaos-bomb is going to detonate. In the obstreperous situation, a decrepit nursemaid and an old purse can be the saviours. This Oscar Wilde masterpiece is filled with weirdly suited characters and a comic plot, and has been a great comedy drama recommendation.

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal

The Christ has been definitely the most persuasive and influential being in the history of the world, even after his sacrifice. His teachings and lessons have continued to change people’s lives for the good. But this Chirsopher Moore’s book is about his life, the one born in a barn with the world on his shoulders. The Messiah’s childhood companion Biff is the one who’ll be narrating the incidents from Jesus’s childhood. This is a heartily written book with divine comedy and humour in the adventures of the child Miracle.

Three Men in a Boat

Three Men in a Boat is a timeless comedy, one of the best works of Jerome K. Jerome and his humorous imaginations. Jerome and his friends George and Harris decide to go upstream the Thames one weekend with a boat, wrong weather report, tent, J.’s pet dog Montmorency and a little too much bit of bad luck. This is one of most pure comedies with incidents hysterically comic independently too. Succeeded by an equally brilliant book Three men on the Bummel.

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch is the most reliable book of prophecies and it says the world will end next Saturday.  The Divine Plan for the Judgement Day is active, everything seems to be going as planned,but one. An angel and a demon living between these mortals for a long time, seem to comprehend and like the lifestyle and aren't sanguine about the upcoming Second Coming.

The War of The Worlds

During his time, H. G. Wells apart from many of his timeless pieces of work and wonder, produced this fiction comedy of a Martian attack on Earth.

This book is the initiation of the magical world of Discworld, a world supported on the back of an ultra-terrestrial turtle, with dragons and monsters, and unlike our blue-green planet, you can fall of the edge. The clueless tourist Twoflower meets the covetous but incompetent wizard Rincewind, in Sir Terry Pratchet’s profoundly and intriguingly written, with intense eye-watering laughter, The Color of Magic.
