The Pun Also Rises Read & Download Å 4 Integrating evidence from history pop culture literature comedy science business and everyday life this book will make readers reconsider everything they think they know about pun. I was very excited to read this book when I ran across the title on a blog recently It was fine a nice little overview of how and why we may have come to pun Neither obsessive and terribly thorough history nor simple humor writing the book occupies for me a weird spot that falls short of rigorous scholarship which would have been interesting but goes beyond the simply light hearted treatment I sort of found myself wishing Pollack had picked one extreme or the other It s a uick and pretty entertaining read Sometimes he sneaks puns in that I wish he hadn t Puns do belong in a book like this and there were plenty that made me giggle some that I shared with my family but some he sprinkled in were too big a reach for the payoff He could have let those go I will say that it s less annoying even at its worst than Lederer s pun book which I read years ago I m glad I read it but think my expectations may have been too high

    The Pun Also Rises (E–pub/Kindle) ´ John Pollack review The Pun Also Rises I was very disappointed What little history Pollack could scape together was mostly used to set up unimpressive puns The writing was mostly dull and the author seemed much impressed with himself than I was The best part was his account of the national punning competition at the beginning of the book An entire volume dedicated to that event would have been a much better read
