The book up for review is “ Surprised By Laughter The Comic World of C.S. Lewis” by Terry Lindvall, PH.D
The main reason I read this book is due to the review that was require of me for receiving this book for free. Otherwise I would have stopped after Chapter 1
This was a hard book to read due to the dry material that was placed in between the binders Trying to explain humor like this author did is like trying to explain a joke that we did not get. It takes away from the laughter and punchline. While I did not know what to expect when I received the book I did not expect it to be a slow tedious reading due to the subject topic which is CS. Lewis. While the topic of explaining why something is funny might work for others it did not for me. Laughter should be spontaneous not dissected. Busting out loud from hear a joke or story should be unscripted. I am sure this book would fit the avid fan of CS.Lewis. While I am a fan this book was not enough to keep my interest or wet my appetite.
I received this book for free in exchange for two honest reviews
