Julian Lovelock's academic study of AR's canon is a very welcome volume (and much anticipated by myself.) Further to my earlier comment on his chapter on CC it now seems from other chapters he sees every book as having comedy as a major attraction to readers of them.
As I commented before in relation to CC, I have never in any of my readings of AR over fifty odd years found the books to be humorous.
Yes there are occasional comic passages but these have always struck me as slightly laboured, and not of much importance. Nor in all the books recounting the creation of the books have I noticed any reference to the 'comedy' nature of them.
Am I alone in this?
