Read full description of the books:
Parts of this book were really fascinating. I liked reading about the different types of puns and other types of word play. As a dictionary of puns, it really works and has a lot of good examples. Sometimes there were too many examples and I really didn't want to read through them all. Some of the puns relied on knowledge that someone born around the time this book was published simply wouldn't have. There were many references to people and topics that simply aren't known much anymore, so the book has a very dated feel. Some of the games were fun and matching up words with answers revealed some funny jokes. I took the quiz and made a 79 out of 100. Yay! I will happily take that C.
