4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a giggle on the train, 13 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Awkward Situations for Men (Paperback)
I guess this book is pretty much what it says on the tin - a collection of short articles that have previously appeared in Shortlist magazine. So I would hazard a guess if you regularly read that magazine you're probably seen them already and this may not necessarily be the book for you - some people seem keen to criticise on the basis they have already read these musings, which seems odd when the collection is clearly labelled as such! Anyway, I don't read Shortlist so these were fresh for me, and I really enjoyed them. This is no Yes Man, more is the pity as that truly was one of the most entertaining books I have read, but reminds me a great deal of Bill Bryson's Notes From A Big Country (which I happen to adore, even after reading it multiple times it still cracks me up); a series of bite-sized, light-hearted, for the most part random anecdotes which you can dip into when you have a spare moment and need a little chuckle (or at least wry smile to yourself). I love Danny's style of writing, and I did find some of the articles absolutely hysterical, but this is not a cohesive book with a plot as such, it really is almost a diary and so isn't something you can really get your teeth into. But this is light and frothy and fun and I really enjoyed it and would both recommend it and confirm I will certainly be reading the follow-up collection very soon...
