If You Like David Thorne Books, You’ll Love…

The Internet Is a Playground features some of Thorne’s most classic viral stories including “Missing Missy”. In that story a woman emails him asking for help finding her missing cat and David replies to her with some of the worst help imaginable in a hilarious way. Thorne considers himself to be a satirist and the book is filled with pranks, hoaxes, and even a sting in jail. This book is considered a hilarious read.

Another great collection by Thorne is Walk It Off, Princess. This book features his typical humorous collection of stories, but this one is tinged with an added message about appreciating the joys in life and the people that we love. Thorne has a keen eye for life’s absurdities and puts them on full display here. He even manages to show some vulnerability here which makes this one of his best collections.
