    1. Andromeda's actual epistles got on my nerves quickly - the misspellings were a bit difficult and there were a lot of 80s references that were hard to figure out. However, everybody else's letters and the diary extracts were very funny and it was, overall, still an enjoyable addition to the Sacred Diaries series.


    2. This is not as funny as Sacred Diaries the first, but still has some laugh out loud moments, a little more serious then the other ones in my opinion but it is still a gem. The funniest being the letter Andromeda(who is an attraction) writes to the Pope. Out of the mouths of babes, this is a poignant statement about our disunion as a body of Christ. Adrian Plass writes without stooping to a level of unbelievability he writes as I suppose a 7 year old socialist from England would write. Well worth [...]


    3. I would probably have enjoyed this more if I had read The Sacred Diaries first as there are some in-jokes (e.g. "persunell problem" for stereo) and the characters aren't really introduced. However I soon got the hang of who was who, and there are more than enough new jokes to make this a very entertaining book. One drawback is that it is rather dated to Thatcherite England, and perhaps someone who wasn't around in the 80s wouldn't get some of the political references. But this is really a minor [...]


    4. The Horizontal Epistles is probably the most hilarious of all of Adrian Plass's books. Father John was amazing, Gerald was as amusing as ever, and Andromeda herself was hilarious


    5. This was read aloud in a round robin- it is so hard to get the jokes when the reader is laughing and trying to relate the spelling errors. But friggin' hilarious!



    6. This revolves around letters supposedly written and received by eight-year-old Andromeda, in traction in a hospital with a broken femur. It's a kind of sequel to 'The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass age 37 3/4'. Andromeda’s spelling is erratic, as might be expected of a child her age, and she makes amusing mistakes in words. There’s an underlying story, too: Andromeda’s parents have separated, and neither of them is visiting their daughter. So Adrian and Anne Plass encourage members of their [...]


    7. Just re-read this. I have such a soft spot in my heart for this series by Adrian Plass. They're laugh-out-loud funny and touching, even though they are technically, and I write this knowing full well the implications of the phrase, "Christian fiction."


    8. I skimmed the text this time around, I'll admit it. My last read of this book was three years ago, but I could still remember most of it.
