On Humour

One thing that I didn't mention above was that I found much of the book extremely hilarious, and read the action as being mostly imaginary, metaphorical and humorous. It occurs to me that, read quite seriously and literally the meaning of the reading would change completely--for example there isn't anything funny about ripping peoples throats out or breaking someones arm at a party.

I am interested in the spirit other people read this in--did it come through as humorous to you? Or something else entirely?
