Book Review: Barnabas Collins In A Funny Vein

Author: Marilyn & Dan Ross
Title: Barnabas Collins In A Funny Vein
Publisher: Paperback Library
Publish Date: June 1969
Buy: Amazon
Book Blurb: 
Joke book for fans of the Dark Shadows tv show. "Hundreds of hilarious vampire jokes about Barnabas Collins -- the ghoul who has captured America's heart."

Review: I've been a fan of Dark Shadows for a very long time. The soap opera was cheesy and enjoyable in the same way that Passions was about a decade ago. Barnabas Collins In A Funny Vein, may not actually be very funny, its more punny than anything, but it is a snapshot of a simpler time.

The book will have you groaning and also giggling (probably in shame), but this isn't meant as literature. It isn't really meant as adult reading either if the puns are any indication.

For example

Is Barnabas a creative thinker?
Yes. If you listen to him, you will notice that he has a lot of new-fangled ideas. 

 It was a cute read for fans of the tv show.
