Woodiss Waits (And Woodiss Gets Away With It Book 2) by Henry Woodiss is a humor/comedy novel that would appeal most to a mixed audience of mature young adults and adults who enjoyed Woodiss Is Willing and who do not mind sexual situations. Woodiss is both the main character and the narrator of his own story and he shares how he went from being a war hero to a gamekeeper, who was seduced by his boss’s wife, to a publicly reviled figure for his part in the very public divorce of his boss’s wife. Yet, what could have been a sad story is instead made into a comedy with Woodiss's decision to show the humorous and ironic side to every situation. Will Woodiss find a woman to love or will his mockery prevent him from finding a life partner?

Woodiss Waits (And Woodiss Gets Away With It Book 2) by Henry Woodiss has a well-designed cover that showed Woodiss’s military background and the fact that multiple women would have a role to play in his story. I found Woodiss to be an interesting narrator because I felt like he was sharing his story directly with me instead of with a faceless audience. My favorite character, aside from Woodiss, was Miriam who was sent by his late wife to provide him with comforts that she herself had never indulged in; Miriam added a bit of a light touch to the story, yet she was still mocked by Woodiss. I personally found the book to be an enjoyable read that embodies the belief that life should not be taken too seriously.
