Gagged and Bound by Nick Jones



A book of puns, one-liners and Dad jokes.

I normally just review fiction so doing a book of puns and one liners was a bit different. If you can’t talk about plot and characters what do you say. I decided to ask and answer a few questions.
Is it funny? Yes! It had me chuckle a good many times.
Will it offend anyone? I don’t think so, most are puns on words. Maybe if you’re from Birmingham, but then you’re probably used to having fun poked at your fair city.
Did I get the joke? Yes I did, but someone without knowledge of British pop-culture might not get a few of the puns.
Stop me if you heard this one before? The large majority of the puns, I had not heard before and I’m amazed with all the fun lines Nick Jones has come up with.
Why should buy this book? It is very funny and unlike a novel you will open this book time and time again. I will look at it before I go to a dinner party and shamelessly plagiarise Mr Jones’ work. I will also open this book whenever I need a bit of cheering up.
