    The Letters from a Nut series is the largest published selection of prank letters--and also, I think, the weakest. It's only my love of the genre that causes me to continue picking up the works of "Ted L. Nancy" (the fictional character who, for some reason, thinks it's funny here to switch his name to F.D. Nancy, or Fred, or Michael, or--oh, who cares). My love of the genre is thanks to Don Novello's hilarious The Lazlo Letters and its two follow-up volumes.

Nancy, or Fred, or Michael, or--oh, who cares). My love of the genre is thanks to Don Novello's hilarious The Lazlo Letters and its two follow-up volumes. Novello was a leader in the field, and his letters to famous companies & people no doubt caused many people to hit the keyboard to write silly missives of their own (I know it caused me to have a lot of fun wading in those waters). "Nancy" makes the mistake of going too far, straying so far from reality that there's just no way his potential correspondents can believe his letters are anything but a joke. Sure, there are some smirks & chuckles to be had from slogging through all of this, but my reactions leaned more toward dread, feeling sorry for the businesses & hoping that they would not respond to the letters I was reading. The author does love his work enough, by the way, to present even letters that garnered no response. Here's the thing, though: it's only funny if the people write back. I did enjoy the email "Nancy" received from a health insurance salesman, who wanted to "access what you qualify for" and take "a vile of your blood." Vile, indeed!

    horrible, not funny, same jokes over and over again. plus, can't help but think how frustrated these people were, all for what? I couldn't even finish it, it was a waste. Heard his others were better though. horrible, not funny, same jokes over and over again. plus, can't help but think how frustrated these people were, all for what?

    You know, four books in, this Letters From a Nut shtick might be a little tired by this point, but I still laughed out loud several times through this book and that's saying something. Ironically I'm generally not a big fan of "prank" humor, but some of this stuff is just so remarkably off-the-wall (read: stupid) that it's somehow funny regardless. Which is not to say that it's consistently hilarious -- it isn't -- but even Babe Ruth hit plenty of foul balls between the home runs, right?

    This just proves that a very goofy guy can get response letters back from just about anyone concerning trips, donations, conventions, proposed stores/products. Even some of the response letters are goofy. I won't spoil the animal act letters for you nor some of the requests for store occupancy...but I can't pass up posting a good potty name ... (SPOILER ALERT)... Papa's Johns Commodes. I think Jerry Seinfeld has more than a little to do with these letters.

    If you like the other Ted L. Nancy books you will definitely like "All New Letters From A Nut" This book has some truly hilarious email exchanges that go for quite a few exchanges. There are funny illustrations also. I would say this is my favorite "Letters From A Nut" book. I laughed out loud! Tough to do these days with a book. If you like the other Ted L.

    These letters were just so absurd that I had to keep reading and keep chuckling over them, and the serious letters he got in response. I had to read them in small chunks, though, or they got a little tedious.

    Started out great and loved the first probably half of the book, but was ready to be done with it by the end. By the end I felt a lot of the letters were the exact same and repetitive with just a different addressee.

    This book is exactly the type of surreal humor I love, and just what I needed while in the midst of the doldrums of the flu virus. Best of all was the Amsterdam tourism official who "caught on" and pranked Ted with his own bizarro letter.

    If you've never come across Ted Nancy before, go now and find Letters from a Nut. Whoever is behind "Ted L. Nancy" really is a nut and more's the pity to any of the victims of his nuttiness.

    The format was cute. Actually letters. I didn't find it funny though and stopped after 30 pages. Also, it wasn't clear when each "story" stopped and started. The format was cute.

    This book bored me quickly. It's a funny concept but is overly absurd in a bad way and gets repetitive and annoying. This book bored me quickly. It's a funny concept but is overly absurd in a bad way and gets repetitive and annoying.

    there were a few funny letters. I feel that after two good books he just went throught the motions to put out another. i was disappointed.

    Hilarious. I have read three of Ted L. Nancy's books. I have also read the first three books of the New Testament. Ted L. Nancy had delivered me into a world of happiness. Hilarious.

    #24 of 130 books pledged to read during 2020 I laughed hysterically at his first four books, but Ted (Fred) Nancy had definitely run out of gas in this one. One bright spot has been "Ted's" appearance on two episodes of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" , Jerry Seinfeld's show on Netflix, so I finally saw him and learned what his real name is. (Barry Marder. Might go by "Cinnamon" in certain situations.) #24 of 130 books pledged to read during 2020 I laughed hysterically at his first four books, but Ted (Fred) Nancy had definitely run out of gas in this one.

    Funny enough product, but has gone downhill since the original books of the series. I think in the digital age, writing moronic letters doesn’t have the same impact to someone you could just shoot an email to. Also I think the jokes and the stories themselves have gone downhill from the first 2 books, which I remember reading I was in middle school!!! That kinda shtick is more apropos to the 1990s than 2020.
