Book Description

Channel 4's show Gogglebox has become a true TV phenomenon. In its third series, it has struck a chord across the nation. Millions of people are now addicted to watching the much-loved cast's surprising and hilarious commentary on the week in television - and the entertaining and heart-warming insight into their lives and relationships. Gogglebox is not just about TV. It's about what it means to be British, particularities, eccentricties, and all.

Whether it's Leon and June you love, or Stephen and Chris you root for, or the Woerdenwebers or Sandy and Sandra who make you laugh the most, we all have a favourite 'unit' - and you can now read about their views on everything from Jeremy Clarkson's size to the death of Baroness Thatcher, and from the best TV snacks to the most potent cocktails. The World According to Gogglebox tells you everything you've wondered about the characters and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the TV show! 10 Nov. 2014
Format:Hardcover
If you are a fan of Gogglebox - then this book is an absolute must - chockablock full of interesting facts and lovely pictures - it provides a fascinating insight into the lives and thoughts of the Goggleboxers. A much more interesting read than I imagined it would be. Only one slight anomaly being that the couple who appear in the show the least get the most pages dedicated to them - which I found slightly odd. Apart from that a cracking good read and an all round great birthday/christmas present - I've already purchased several!

Bought one for my Mum's upcoming bday as she loves the series. I have to say that the book is HILARIOUS! Lots of odd and funny bits of information about all the families, pictures from their past, stories about how they met etc... just lots of fun things, all presented with nice illustrations. I still have a week before my mum's bday - hope it doesn't look to worn by then!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great companion book! Love the series. 25 Oct. 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I LOVE this show - I only wish they would release the television programme on DVD. But, this book is the next best thing. Great insight on all the families and couples on the show, with extra bits of information you didn't know about them, and lots of great quotes from the first three series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 12 Nov. 2014
By Aly
Format:Hardcover
Absolutely brilliant. Got this for a Xmas present but couldnt resist a sneaky peek as I love gogglebox. Its quite a thick book and nicely presented. There appears to be loads of photos and some in depth info on the families including how they got involved in the TV series. Its written in an amusing way - very much in line with the TV show. Im going to have to get myself this or borrow it after Xmas. For any Gogglebox fan this is a must.Great price too.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! 7 Oct. 2014
Format:Hardcover
Wasn't sure what this was going to be - bought it for a friend who is obsessed with the show but couldn't help a sneaky peak, it's brill! You find out stuff you never would've known about the goggleboxers, like Rev Kate having a Zombie fascination! and the cartoons are hilarious. But the best bit is finding out what they think about different TV shows and what they think about eachother. Would definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read 13 Feb. 2015
By Fred
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Love Gogglebox the programme and loved the book - it was hard to put down. Gives a good insight into different families and couples that appear in the programme by asking them various questions which you can almost hear them answering. It provides information on how some couples met (some providing photographs of their weddings), how they got involved in the programme, how they would react to different scenarios etc. It is the type of book that you can pick up and read ad-hoc or read from cover to cover in one hit as I did. I hope they produce further editions as the families come and go on the programme. I would recommend it to any avid Gogglebox fan.
