I read this very quickly and found it enormously readable, funny and clever. Some of the characters are extreme, but life is too, and if you take their opinions with a pinch of salt you should really enjoy this book.
A good marker for a great book in my opinion is when something shocking happens in the book, you immediately feel shocked yourself..i felt shocked on a number of occasions!!
Don't get me wrong, this is by no means an intellectual, high brow book, it's quite a similar style to 'E' and The Book, The Film The T Shirt', but that is by no means a criticism as both of these are firm favourites. Read Charlie Owen if you like this style of book, his are just as funny!!
