Product Description

Review

There are perky self-help books and then theirs is IS IT JUST ME OR IS EVERYTHING SHIT?, an A-Z rant about the naffness of modern life that's so relentlessly bitter it's actually rather uplifting. Dissing everything from Keane ("Tom Chaplin's face has no edges") to cardboard-tasting paninis to the overuse of Manolo Blahniks as a metaphor it's, dare we say it, more piercing than a Manolo heel (MARIE CLAIRE)

Bilious old-codgering taken to the highest possible level as authors vent anger over the crassness and mediocrity of modern life cf. "juice drinks", Otis Ferry, Kabbalah, foot spas, Sam Taylor-Wood and pubs playing "mellow dance grooves". Excellent entry (TIME OUT)

A life-affirming guide to the modern world (ESQUIRE)

One of the many things that irritates these guys is rave reviews: so I'll just say it's very funny and recommend you to buy it. Unless of course you're a big fan of the Daily Mail (Stewart Prebble, author of Grumpy Old Men)

Book Description

* A sequel to the phenomenally successful IS IT JUST ME OR IS EVERYTHING SHIT

Loved the Original, so much so it was a permanent inclusion in my toilet for 5 minute reads.
This version however leaves you feeling like one was enough.
As I have read the first cover to cover often, I may have high expectations from a follow up and to be honest, it was nowhere near the first, nothing original and nothing like the brilliance about Cafes especially the originals line about butter.

If you did love the first buy this for as low as possible, and if you haven't read the first, get that, its sooo much better!

I really enjoyed the original and bought this expecting more of the same, which is exactly what I got. It's pretty funny in parts, but the writing's not as fresh as the first one and it would have been more interesting to explore the reason why everything's shite. If you're looking for that kind of thing City Slackers by Steve Mckevitt, which is also very funny covers this quite well.

I bought this book at the airport ready to take on a recent holiday. Not bad in places but certainly not as funny as i thought it would be. It was a simple holiday read but did not make me want to read the first one. That said i did like some of the stuff on politicians!!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Patrick Neylan VINE VOICE on 18 Sep 2008
Format: Hardcover
This book is a miserable, humourless grumble about things that are perhaps moderately irritating in the unlikely event you stop to think about them. It failed to interest the 15-year old it was bought for, though it was certainly not above her intellectual level.
I don't give one star lightly, and I usually try to inject a bit of humour into reviews. But this time I've written in in the style of the book I'm reviewing. So, if you enjoyed this review and would like to read a couple of hundred pages of similar mithering, then buy the book. You're welcome to it.
Utterly joyless.

... is this book nowhere near as good as the original? The first had me laughing out loud. This time I laughed three or four times, at most. Sorry guys, but it reads like it was bashed out in a couple of weeks.
