review 1: So excited to check this out, it just came in the mail yesterday. (Yes, I won this in a goodreads giveaway)! Right off the bat I am reminded of my favorite irreverent cartoons including "Calvin and Hobbs" and the great "Bloom County". Back with more when I have read more!Great collection of comic strips, a perfect introduction to Keith Knight. Almost makes me wish I got the paper, guess I'll have to settle for his books! :)
review 2: This book was provided for review by Hachette Book Group. I don't normally read comics (as I don't normally read the newspaper) but as a kid that was the first section I read. While I'm not familiar with The Knight Life I did find it quite interesting. I really liked Keith Knight's sense of humor. He is witty, self-deprecating
... more, and smart. The humor in these comics strips was right up my alley. I liked the notes that he put with some of the strips. He lets us know when some were changed for publication, what he liked about them, why he wrote them, etc. It was nice to get inside his head a bit. Being that the strip is auto-biographical it makes me wonder. Obviously the scenes are sensationalized a bit, but you wonder what really happened to make him write that particular strip. There were quite a few good ones that I had to share. Some of them really make you think for a minute before you start the next one. I guess that a sign of a great cartoonist, being able to get a point across without being blatantly obvious. I liked this one and I'll be keeping my eyes open for more of his comics. less

I dig Keith Knight, but this one lacked the edge of K Chronicles and (Th)Ink.
First collection of his daily strip. Was as good as all the others.
It's not as good as his x-rated stuff, but it's still pretty funny.
It is a comic strip turned to a story.good.high reckamend it
Lighthearted enjoyable
