5.0 out of 5 stars A sense of the outrageous... March 3 2007
By Armchair Interviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road by Diana Estill is a sparkling collection of humorous vignettes that range from the anecdotal to the philosophical--and almost everything in between.

Drawing mainly from her own experiences, from youth right through to Grandma-hood, and with her tongue lodged firmly in her cheek, Diana Estill provides guidance and advice on such wide-ranging topics as wedding anniversary gifts, handling jalapeno peppers, and football terminology for dummies. Interspersed with such ruminations are hilarious anecdotes such as the Christmas Monopoly game that did not become a 'family tradition,' and the testosterone-fuelled Texas Chain Saw Adventure.

Refreshingly, political correctness is thrown out of the window. The foibles and peculiarities particular to the male and female varieties of our species are brilliantly portrayed. As a man, I heartily endorse her theories on the problems of mall navigation for men, and the ingenious solution of a male drop-off zone complete with vibrating chairs, televised sports, and attendant grannies missing their grown-up sons. Brilliant.

Unlike many humor writers, Estill does not usually laugh at other people. By and large, she pokes fun at herself, her husband, and her family, in an affectionate way that is very appealing. Occasionally, the tone becomes more reflective and serious, with a couple of particularly lyrical and touching accounts of her relationship with her father.

At a fundamental level, this is an account of ordinary incidents in the everyday lives of normal people, and this is what makes it so accessible. Painting such events in her whimsical and quirky manner, Diana Estill infuses them with a sense of outrageous craziness that helps one to chuckle at the annoyances of life. After a tiring, stressful day this is a great book to pick up.

Armchair Interviews says: This book is a reminder that laughter is indeed the best medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Gift Nov. 3 2006
By Bonnie Neely - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Driving On The Wrong Side of the Road by Diana Estill will keep you chuckling and sometimes laughing uncontrollably, as I was while sitting in the airport reading it. The book is a compilation of some of Estill's very popular humor columns, which are featured in numerous publications. She was a finalist in the 2005 America's Funniest Humor Contest. Treat yourself and your friends to this delightful book. There are so many and varied situations about which she pokes fun, you'll relate to many and have great fun reading these aloud to people of all ages. Terrific Christmas gift for others or for yourself!

3.0 out of 5 stars Collection of short pieces April 21 2012
By Cindy V - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of essays that take their inspiration from the authors every day life. As I understand it, these were written as entries for a humor column in a newspaper. While there are certainly funny pieces in this collection, a lot of the essays are quite ordinary. The author writes fairly well, and although I did not find the book totally boring, it did not keep me wanting to move onto the next piece either. It's a good book to read when you have short chunks of time, on the beach or in the car, as each essay stands on its own, and all are quite short.

I would not begin to compare the author to Erma Bombeck as one reviewer did. The book is nicely formatted for Kindle, and is well edited.

3.0 out of 5 stars JUST OK Jan. 26 2008
By Josi jo - Published on Amazon.com

Mundane stories of mundane topics. This CD reminded me of similar style books I read in the 1980's, which I DID enjoy back then. Nothing much new or exciting here particularly if you're a fan of this sort of genre. IF it's new to you then you may find the humor here and enjoy it. For me it was "old hat".
