4.0 out of 5 stars The same, but different... 25 Mar. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I haven't read this either, but I'm dropping a star because it doesn't have a spider on the cover. Plus, the cover's yellow, which isn't nearly as cool as black.

UPDATE - having now read the book, further comments follow...

David Thorne is probably most famous for his series of real-life letters where he attempted to pay for a utility bill by offering a picture of a spider he drew. Much of his best subsequent material is in a similar vein - based in reality, documenting correspondence between David and some hapless victim.

As pointed out by other reviewers a lot of the book is indeed familiar to people who zealously follow David Thorne's site, but there is still a good proportion of new material that I don't believe has been on the website. There are also some surreal, Monty-Pythonesque jokes... a book-mark on the first page, a table of contents that includes absolute zero (-273) and the Fibonacci sequence, and a centrefold in the middle of the book.

The book is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny in many parts, has some surprising pathos on other parts. It's also an uncomfortable book, as David's humour is mischievous and works best when he has dupes or victims.

If you're a follower of David Thorne, the book, even with the recycled material, is worth getting. If you're not familiar with David's work you may want to search for him on line and check out his website, and I'd guess you would become a convert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the last one 21 Mar. 2012
By Huddo
Format:Paperback
It's better than the first book. Honestly, it's *that* good. Whatever you thought of the first, this is more of the same. If you hated the first book, you'll hate this more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably funny! 5 Feb. 2013
By Maria M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know this contains stuff already in the blog but this man is so funny I can stand to read it again. I think this may be one of the funniest things I have ever read (and his other book) seriously seriously hysterical. Love the complaints against him and also the near death experiences. If you are a comedy fan you won't care that some of this you can get from the blog. The ones you can't are undiscovered treasure and worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dont buy if you read the website 22 Aug. 2012
By Remo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David is a funny guy, but if you follow Davids site 27bslash6 (which is probably why most people have bought this book) its just 90% email content from the site with some added content pieces. Appreciated they are funny BUT and to quote

"It's Warm and Has Chairs is an absolute goldmine of previously unpublished material by author David Thorne" no its not, unless the average expectation of a goldmine is to produce content widely available and no surprise to anyone. For anyone that has no access to Davids site it is indeed a goldmine of humour, for everyone else prepare to feel cheated

David Thorne seems to have a lot of time on his hands. Maybe it's because he's Australian. Who can tell? So, while he appears to be generally gainfully employed for at least several days in the year, he finds plenty of opportunities to amuse himself by engaging unsuspecting people in long or pointless or long AND pointless email exchanges. The general gist of these is that the unsuspecting dupe contacts him on a more or less innocuous subject, at which point he pounces and takes the conversation into some ridiculous, circular and/or deeply surreal universe where only he knows what he's talking about (and even then...). Sometimes this involves drawings of spiders.

It's a bit like laughing at Belgians or gingers. We all do it. It's wrong. It's deeply unfair. You'll surely go to hell for doing it. But it feels so good.

Possibly the best advice I can give you is "don't buy this book". You can look at most of the content by visiting the 27b/6 website, with the added advantage that you will appear to your office mates to be doing something useful (except for frequent guffaws, when you will appear to your office mates to be looking at internet pictures of Belgians. Or gingers. Or ginger Belgians).

Alternatively, buy the book and kill a tree - there are probably too many of them anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book but slightly misleading description... 28 Dec. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I understand most of the negative reviews are not because of quality but because the book is full of material that you can see on his website. Whilst this is true, it doesn't make up the whole book, in fact I'd say about 40-50% is material from the website, which I don't even mind. You get it for free on his website but his stuff is so good I don't mind paying for it plus I'm sure some of the money will go to maintaining his website (or more likely expensive watches ;D)... That said, I think the description should say everything is new...

Despite this, his unpublished stuff is just as funny as the stuff you see on his website. A consistently funny book with nice little bits of humour i.e. the page numbering, contents, random things in the margins. He also has callbacks to his first book and emails within the book and little references that fans will giggle at.

(Side note: ordered this on the 26th and recieved this morning (28th), extremely speedy service so 5/5 stars for the delivery time!)
