Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I really enjoy puns and jokes of all sort, and this little book had a fun, pop exploration of the history of puns and their uses over time. Sometimes it overreached -- as when it tried to explain neurological processes that may or may not affect the punster's delivery or the audience's reception -- but for the most part it was a delightful little book.
Would you be willing to try another book from John Pollack? Why or why not?
Sure. I was specifically listening for the punnage, but if he took on a topic of similar note, I'd be interested.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Pete Larkin?
Yes. He was a good narrator.
Do you think The Pun Also Rises needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I have no opinion.

The history of punning is delightful. A great way to enjoy that isn't to punishing on the eerie canal.
