    1. I m glad I came across this book when I searching for a book with a bear on the cover It has been a laughter filled read that I won t soon forget If you don t know what a Goombaw is then you should read it just to find out.I highly recommend the audio version by Norman Dietz fabulous narration

    2. Writing humor is tough, real tough It s somewhat easy to get a laugh when you tell a story face to face But when you can make someone laugh so hard, so belly rolling hard that they re afraid they ll not catch their breath, that they might pee them self so hard that other members of your family are afraid you re having a seizure well, that there s funny.As with all of his books, story after story is well constructed McManus is a master storyteller that we don t see much of these days Do yourself [...]

    3. Really funnyIn would recommend this book to anyone who loves the outdoors It s full of jokes and funny stories Patrick F McManus did a really good job on this one.

    4. It s not too often a book makes me laugh out loud This one had my wife questioning my sanity The night the bear ate Goombaw was especially funny.

    5. Fourth in my collection by Mr McManus, and just as funny and quirky as the other previously read three The usual suspects are here, viz Rancid Crabtree the senior citizen of outdoorsmen childhood friends Crazy Eddie Muldoon and Retch Sweeney neighbor Al Finley and of course the practical, realistic wife Bun While there is a sort of sameness to these stories, Mr McManus manages to bring chuckles anew to many of them The title story, for example, tells of a family camping trip when the author was [...]

    6. This collection features several of my all time top favorite Patrick McManus stories, The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw, Sequences, The Dumbest Antelope, The Fried Flies, Please, and Easy on the Garlic, Out of Sync, Getting it in the Ear, Never Cry Arp , Whitewater Fever, and .I was introduced to McManus s work by my father, almost twenty years ago Everyone in my family likes to read, and for a while my father put us to bed by reading to us from various books I remember how we all groaned the first [...]

    7. A very funny book, hilarious if you ask me With sequences, your guide to go fishing instead Don t try to annoy me that has, well, things that annoy him The water spirits that are evil This is a well written book I suggest you read it because I don t want to spoil it too much I propose, though, that these are all magazine articles that he wrote for his company Hunched over a typewriter all, tik tik tak swish tik tik tak swish Anyway he is a magazine article writer So, he should write well, or he [...]

    8. I loved this book I had read bits and pieces of McManus before but never a whole book I very much enjoy McManus off the wall view of camping and the great outdoors I grew up in Wyoming and Colorado and can easily see each story unfolding Highly recommend for anyone who appreciates humor and the outdoors

    9. Tears literally streamed from my eyes laughing When I tried to read a passage out loud to my sister, I was unable to do so between laughs and out right seizures Hilarious Caution read in a safe area away from penetrating stares of onlookers Your laughter will certainly be disturbing as you will not be able to contain yourself

    10. This has possibly his funniest story in it ever His work is cumulative, like Gary Larson, so one joke too many may put you over the top He s an outdoor writer so it helps, but it is not essential that you have some familiarity with hunting and or fishing If both offend yout my problem.

    11. This is by far the best Patrick McManus book out there The title story has to be about the funniest thing I ve ever read Maybe it s the fact that I m the daughter of an outdoorsman that makes me appreciate the the truth in these stories Good for a laugh

    12. Another in the classic long line of great outdoor humor and short stories I think you have to live in the Northwest to get everything he is laying down I read it to my eight year old, and we laughed our heads off together Great entertainment.

    13. Mr McManus is a great auther and I would like to read of his books I enjoy his logic The book was fun, only a couple of stories were out loud funny to me But the book was good entertainment for anyone who loves outdoor sportman type activities.

    14. I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and or to read within the series.My Rating System couldn t finish, wouldn t recommend, would recommend, would read again, have read again.

    15. Eddie Muldoon, Rancid Crabtree, Retch Sweeney Great comedy when I read it as a kid and it holds true now, 20 odd years later Loved all of Patrick F McManus books, great for a snort or belly busting laugh

    16. Grade CNot as funny as I remember other McManus books being good for a few chuckles but never brought me to tears Also, it kinda flopped with the bookclub.

    17. Short tales of the outdoor life Humorous reading that even a city guy like myself can enjoy.

    18. I love this book It is positively hilarious I enjoy all that I ve read of McMannus s stuff, but this would be one of my favorites If you need a laugh, pick up this one

    19. One of my favorite stories I have heard so many times I can quote nearly the whole book Daddy loves it when I come up behind him a cry Bear, bears got me.

    20. One of my favorite of his Very easy to read and very very funny Love to just sit down and read these funny short books.

    21. I love his use of irony and foreshadowing Even when you know it s coming, the punchlines are still hilarious.

    22. McManus has a great way of understating the situations The stories in the book are very entertaining, with plenty of humor to spare.

    23. Goombaw is his grandmother, for anyone who s wondering Another laugh out loud series of stories from McManus childhood.
