Getting Even based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Its still one of the funniest books I ever read--even after 20 years.
Getting Even is a remarkable collection of Woody Allen¿s creative works of short sketches. The book is extremely humorous. It is a reminiscence of scenes from Allen's earlier films. Page to page I read, and page to page I laughed. That is how funny the book is. I liked ¿Mr. Big¿ the most. Woody Allen¿s humor from absurdity is a unique twist in writing.
I think Master Allen will suffer historically for not having mastered any of the crafts that he is so very good at; i.e. film, comedy and satire. It takes courage to be excellent and unappreciated, so I'll forgive him. This is, however, much better than anyone now living could produce!
