Old thread here... thought I'd try Lucky Jim, not long after reading Money. He's not a patch on his son in my opinion, at least by reading these two books alone. I wouldn't expect Money to be to everyone's taste though. I enjoyed Lucky Jim but it was a bit too "Boy wants girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back".

A couple good laugh out loud bits though.
