Making Sense of Humour

2 thoughts on “Making Sense of Humour”

  1. I often have trouble with humour. I can watch a comedy on TV in silence while all around me are rolling on the floor but then a silly incident that no one else notices, can have me crying with laughter. I must say Hornby’s novel sounds a bit of an unlikely story line for a comedy – four people wanting to commit suicide. If I had to choose a successful humorous book I think it would be Hitch Hikers’ Guide to the Galaxy.


  2. Had not thought of HHG – good idea! Picked up John O’Farrell ‘May contain nuts’ which did look quite funny, but had a feeling the constant joking would get wearing after a while. I think you have to like the writing style as well as the content.
