    Story

    Stephen Fry hosts four programmes on the joys of the English language - as heard on BBC Radio 4, including Current Puns. Why does our language groan with the weight of puns? What exactly is a pun? And who, or what, is the Thief of Bad Gags?

    W. Doug Bolden says: "Good, but could have been better"
    "for those that enjoy word play"

    What did you love best about Fry's English Delight?

    I love the obvious joy that Mr. Fry shows in all manner of word play in the English language.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen Fry? Why or why not?

    Certainly


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Fry – was your favorite?

    This doesn't really apply. Stephen Fry is more of a narrator rather than a performer of characters. This is factual exposition, not a story as such.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no, but I did especially enjoy the part devoted to puns
