The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald
The Egg and I

jhwest, August 4, 2007

My book club read this about five years ago and, honestly, I wanted to skip that month altogether. But with a sigh I read "The Egg and I" and it quickly shot to the very top of my all-time favorite books. It has got to be one of the most charming, amusing and delightful books ever written. Betty has a marvelous sense of humor and is a fanstastic chronicler of quirky characters and situations.
I just can't say enough wonderful things about this book. It stands the test of time beautifully.
