Wally Lamb's writing captures the reader's attention through his humorous style of writing. The book had me laughing out loud many times. Madame Marguerite & the Russian classmate's dialogue is quite funny, as well as their characters. Perhaps one of the funniest parts of the book is the performance of the 'tableaux vivants, or the living pictures; the Christmas program. The performance is one filled with theatrics of a special kind.... A great and fun read..
