      Lucky Jim PDF Ê ↠ Kindle mdeparenpar.co lucky mobile, Lucky Jim KindleThis is a book packed with humor on every page The blurbs tell us it is “Regarded by many as the finest and funniest comic novel of the twentieth century” I’ll give examples but let me first tell you a bit about the story Jim Dixon is a lecturer on a part time appointment He’s under pressure to get something published and when he finds his title “It was a perfect title in that it crystallized the article’s niggling mindlessness it’s funereal parade of yawn enforcing facts the pseudo light it threw upon non problems”Jim isn’t a good looking guy He’s short and broad shouldered but looks odd because he’s so skinny His doddering supervi
