Book: Diary of a Jackwagon

Not everything we do has to be deadly serious. One of the main people I rely on to keep me laughing is Tim Hawkins. And, for the first time ever, Tim has written a book!

As a fan, I knew what to expect. This a short-chapter paperback that mainly holds Tim’s comedy in written form. The stories and jokes are funny, and considering I’ve got most of them memorized, I can even hear Hawkins as one of the thousand voices in my head as I read this book. (Whether that’s good or bad, my pshrink won’t say!)

While this predictability is an asset to the tome, Diary of a Jackwagon contains a few things I had never heard. Much of it is backstory either of Hawkins’ life or the longer version of humor that doesn’t fit in a video presentation. These parts were the better parts of the book, mostly due to their freshness.

Honestly, though, what are we expecting? It’s funny, it’s Tim-clean, and it’s worth $10 to have something fun to read from time to time. It takes almost no extra brain power to read, but it also doesn’t numb you to the realities of life.

All-in-all, it’s exactly what you would expect. Unless for some reason you think Tim Hawkins is a stage name for D.A. Carson or Dan Wallace (heavy-duty Biblical scholar dudes). In which case, you might have thought there was depth. There isn’t.

Just good clean fun.

Free book from Booklook. It was worth every penny.
