Fun Stories: Random City Limits by R. Scott Murphy is a collection of humorous stories as well as Scott Murphy’s off the wall comments and ramblings. This is his third Fun Stories e-book. I have not read the others, but this one is quite funny. It includes funny but true stories, some from his childhood and some that are not related to him. He sets up each story with the skill of a stand-up comedian. In his book description, he mentions that he is part storyteller, game show host, and DJ. All of those are true, but I think he should add comedian to his list of descriptors. Or, maybe late night talk show host. His specialty, and possibly my favorite parts of the book, were his listings of real-life absurd band names. Names like "Sissy Boy Slap Party” and “Brady Bunch Lawnmower Massacre.”
I enjoyed Fun Stories: Random City Lights by R. Scott Murphy. I’ve never read anything quite like it. It kept me smiling throughout and had me laughing out loud several times. There is no deep meaning to be discovered in the pages of this book. It is just as the title suggests; completely random material. As best I can tell, Mr. Murphy’s only mission is to give his readers something to laugh at. If that is the case, then he has succeeded. I love the fact that this book is not only very funny but it’s also 98% clean. The 2% refers to a few jokes that referred to words that sound like cuss words, but the cuss words themselves were never mentioned. Plus, there were a few band names that were on the edge of clean/not clean. But on the whole, this book is good clean fun that I recommend to any reader of any age.
