I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
It did have some humorous moments, but it wasn't a comedy. At least not to me.
There were too many issues that each character had to battle.
It was very well written, with interesting, un-perfect characters and a solid plot.
And the part that was hinted at in the blurb with nephew and uncle trying to set each other up, was the most uninteresting part of the whole book.
It was less gritty than the boystown series (no murders, huh), but it had some of the themes (relationship and committment issues - fidelity, aids etc.) and also the teenager who was mistreated by the conversion therapy people that his parents delivered him to.
So, not exactly light comedy material. Still fun to read and also some substance.
