So, Stephen Fry, Niall Fergusson, Noel Fielding and Rory Bremner find this book an incredible read? Begs the question what on earth do they normally read! For sure, this kind of celebrity praise will account for many a reader buying the book in the first instance without realising that this is not at all witty, intelligent or funny!
Whilst always liking the works and ramblings of Spike Milligan, at least the insanity was funny - but this falls well short of the mark and even though I did consider not completing it on many occasions, I did complete it in the vain hope that it could not get any worse, but I was wrong, and therefore apart from wasting a few of my valuable hours of reading time, the planet lost more trees to create the paper that was wasted on this drivel.
Maybe it's me? Maybe it's that I don't understand current humour anymore? Somehow, I don't think that it is me.
So, on reflection, take away the generosity of the 1 star!!
