Product Description

Review

[The letters] display a mixture of gumption, brio and gleeful silliness that will make...readers snort in agreement. --The Daily Telegraph, December 2010

Product Description

I Could Go On...
Unpublished Letters to The Daily Telegraph
Edited by Iain Hollingshead

'SIR -- My first thought on seeing your headline, "Pupils to be taught about sex at seven" was, "What, in the morning?"'

In 2009 a small volume of unpublished letters to The Daily Telegraph, Am I Alone in Thinking...? captured the public imagination. For every 20 letters the newspaper's daily Letters page can publish each day, another 600 will have gone to waste -- and for every serious contribution to political debate there will be many more that are simply very funny, and, alas, there's never enough room to include them all.

I Could Go On... is the eagerly-awaited sequel, chronicling another year through the whimsical preoccupations and hobbyhorses of the Telegraph's wonderfully waggish readers: Chris Evans' supplanting of Sir Terry Wogan on Radio 2; Tiger Woods' peccadilloes; Gordon Brown's long farewell -- and fans of Am I Alone in Thinking...? will be especially pleased to see the return of M, who believes himself to be the head of MI6, but whose inscrutable missives emanate from an internet cafe in Bristol. Like his fellow correspondents, simultaneously fascinated, baffled and outraged by modern life, he most certainly Could Go On ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Educated chuckles 2 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the follow up book compilation to last year`s edition of reader`s letters unpublished by the Daily Telegraph.

It is , apart from being great value for money , very very funny and the sort of reading you can pick up and put down at leisure whilst in the bath , on the loo or just killing a few minutes.

Some of the letters are odd , some just hilarious , some very opinionated or perceptive but all very readable and topical for the year just gone. Having read mine , I have passed it on to my sister who also enjoys the humour of the Telegraph.

Great stocking filler and well worth the money !

5.0 out of 5 stars Amusement on every page 21 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the second of two books of unpublished letters to the Daily Telegraph. I've really enjoyed them both. There are some letters which are just humorous, some which lead up to a dreadful pun, and there are some that are so bigoted that it's difficult to believe that they have not been written in jest - but you fear they were not. It's a very easy read, and at times laugh-out-loud funny. A great book for yourself or as a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still funny 19 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I thought this might be boring as sequels often can be. But it is equally funny as the first part "Am I alone in thinking..?"

If you are already lucky to have "Am I Alone in Thinking...", you have to buy this book.

If anything, its even better. It can be read in a sitting, or if you have the self discipline. I tried reading one of the letters out loud at work, and could not, for giggling so much.

Please let this be an annual event, to be found in Christmas stockings the way the Giles cartoon book was. It brings a warmth to the heart (that the world cannot be as ghastly as one thinks if so many others agree with such witty, erruidte comments), and a smile to the face.

Quite simply

More please

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing so queer as folk. 19 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent sequel to the "Am I alone" book of letters. Full of humour, wit and interesting comment. The individual items create a form of Almanack of the year's varied events and topics provided by the many different readers of The Telegraph. I hope that it is repeated each year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please go on....and on 20 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This sequel to "Am I alone..." maintains the skillful editing, careful mselection and splendidly offbeat humour of the original. The wit and whimsy of this splendid compendium should be required reading for the would-be comedians who think that obscenity is an adequate substitute.
Ian Hollinshead has a problem, though. You do this so well that your hopes of promotion are now mere ptpe-dreams. They'll never let you leave after this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarioous 1 Dec 2012
By Prudie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Forget the weather, have a good laugh! These correspondents trigger many guffaws and have more humour than many of the "Stand-ups" seen on television today.
