The Private Eye is something people acquire a taste to. Naturally, Hislop's Annual is no exception. If you like satire (and to do so you should know what it means) then you'll enjoy the Private Eye. Hislop may be the most sued man in Britain, but he's genuinely quite the genius. Private Eye is clever, comical and challenges all notions of the "PC".
The Annual's at a dandy price too, so if you've got the change, why not give it a taste? It's like marmite, you'll get it and love it to death, craving for more, or you just won't find it funny and you'll scratch your head and hide it among your bookshelf for that odd friend of yours to read when they come around.
