I adore jokes, lest they are done well of course. So when I spotted this little book up on Netgalley I just knew I had to try it out, see what kind of jokes they had, if they had any new ones, and also if I would get them all (since English isn’t my native language plus I don’t live in the US).
In the end I am pretty satisfied with what I saw, but there were a few things that I didn’t like. For instance the knocking jokes and the riddles were just meh, I didn’t laugh once, and at times I had to re-read jokes and say them out loud to get what they were hinting at. Then some of the jokes got rehashed, either completely (T-rex + bills), or words have changed (the dictionary ones or the leopard ones). This is just such a shame. I don’t see why you would need to rehash things, I am sure you can think of countless of fun jokes.
But I did find some gems, and I also had great fun reading them to my boyfriend. Who just looked at me funny, then got the punchline, groaned/laughed and shook his head. 😛 This is another reason why I had to get this book, my boyfriend has the funniest reactions.
I also did like that the book was split up in various sections. From space to clothes to nature.
The titles of the chapters/sections also definitely fit the book.
But yeah, some jokes weren’t funny, in the end it just felt like I never would finish, and then there is the rehashing of jokes. So I am giving this book 2.5 stars.
