Winner Takes All: A Life of Sorts
Winner Takes All: A Life of Sorts
by Michael Winner
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Winner lot, 9 May 2012
Michael Winner breathes, Michael Winner speaks, Michael Winner is- a simple mantra i use to 'calm down' of an evening with thoughts of the great man. And when i heard he had also written books about the greatness of his life i was forced to rush out and buy this, the Tarby inspired 'Winner Takes All: A life of sorts'. And what sorts he has experienced. You can imagine.
Calm down dear, and buy this book, you won't not regret it, you won't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lo fi Allstars, 7 Sep 2011
This review is from: In Memory Of (Audio CD)
From it's distinctly home made looking packaging and lo-fi recorded quality Lets Wrestle pin their colours firmly to the mast of Indie Schmindie. Yet the lyrics and melodies are inspired, and i have listened this EP lots since buying it .

5.0 out of 5 stars My Wookie book, 7 Sep 2011
This review is from: My Booky Wook (Paperback)
I have not read this book, though i can imagine: Russell does some drugs, Russell does some sex, Russell does some soul searching, Russell becomes dickensian cheeky cockerney chap, Russell offends Manuel and sadly fails to destroy career, Russell kisses a girl. He likes it.
No i am reviewing this book in an attempt to draw more attention to my similarly title Wookie Book, with illustrations by my mate Dave. Not quite on Amazon yet , but we are aiming to outsell this drivel by miles. And then some.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the house of F.U.N, 7 Sep 2011
It is very rare that you can say that a book is truly groundbreaking . Littlejohn's H.O.F does nothing to buck this trend, though to be fair to it there is a picture of our hero on the front cover which should be enough for anyone. This can be best described a 'toilet book', and as a previous reviewer pointed out, the pages are very absorbent. On a par with My Bookie Wook for sheer mindless brilliance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly written, terrible plot., 11 Dec 2006
This review is from: Acid Row (Paperback)
Even though this book was badly written, the characters unbelievable, and the dialogue ridiculous, i still found myself wanting to read on to the conclusion of the story. I should have trusted my instincts and put the trash down. The story reached a crescendo, only to fizzle out within a chapter, and it felt as if the writer decided she had written enough words, and needed to finish the story as quickly as possible. Don't bother with this, it makes Dan Brown look good.
