Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book is very good if you are taking part in researching into language of humour or comparing different types of humour. It gives a very detailed account of different aspects of humour and is quite scientific as it gives you all the technical terms of 'humour-techniques' you need to know for the subject. It is very easy to understand and provides lots of examples which you can refer to if writing coursework or essays. Overall, it is informative but you wouldn't read it for fun.

Alison Ross is a very experienced teacher and examiner and presents a readable book here. However, it is superficial at times and all the white space and design features feel like it is spun out. The examples are beginning to date and many students don't really engage with Monty Python like they did in the good old days. A helpful starter text.
