Portuguese Irregular Verbs (Portuguese Irregular Verbs, #1) - Alexander McCall Smith, Iain Mcintosh A light, humorous book about a German doctor of philology, if that makes sense. While parts were very funny, especially at the beginning, it lost steam as it developed. Though it didn't actually "develop." Mostly it just cast a pretentious German PhD into silly situations meant to poke fun at pretentious Germans PhDs who don't know how to act or react outside Germany, which could be really funny, but was somehow never quite funny enough.
