1.0 out of 5 stars Good God!, 24 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Difficult Second Book (Hardcover)
Thin, obnoxious book by a fat obnoxious man. This bloated mess seems to only have a lust for attention and money, and will do anything to get it. Whoever published this tripe should hang their heads in shame, that they would pay someone for the rights to print this. I mean, he confesses himself he put no thought or effort into 'writing' (should read, narrating to someone else), so why should be spend our time and money reading this.

Truly, reading really should be educational, or entertaining, or artistic. This is none of those three, and should never have seen the light of day. It pains me to think of genuine authors, who cannot be published because the market is saturated with this junk.

And it is you, reader, who is responsible, for actually buying this! I can only imagine this sort of guff will appeal to those of 'below average intelligence', like the man himself.

Congratulations mate!

Not only do you claim that he narrated to someone with no proof (i admit it's possible, but do you have the proof).

And you also slag off absolutely everyone who buys and enjoys this book, calling them 'below average intelligence'. I'll admit this isn't the greatest book ever written, but just because people enjoy it, I don't really see why they should be basically labelled thicker than most.

One has to question what your motives were to read this book yourself to review it. You obviously disliked Chris Moyles even before embarking on reading this, his second book. (I am assuming you never did not read his first book, or these pompous opinions of the man would have been aired then) It is obvious that you only 'read' the book to enable yourself to enforce your personal opinion.
Anyone with an ounce of sense would know that if you do not actually like Chris Moyles at all, then you will not like reading his book, which is about him. So why read it?
Those who do like Chris Moyles and wake up daily with him to make you smile and ease you into your day, will enjoy a further insight into his life, friends and job.
Finally, if you aspire to be a critic to be taken seriously, you will need to stop insulting the readers who may very well enjoy this book. A 'customer review' is just that, your own opinion as a customer, please dont insult those who may enjoy this book with rude comments such as "this sort of guff will appeal to those of 'below average intelligence'".
I sense a certain 'delusion of grandeur' with yourself and urge possible purchasers of this book (who i will assume are Moyles fans in the first place) to look at all the reviews and only take heed of those who appear to like the man in the first place.
Basically: - If you hate him; you'll obviously hate the book -If you like him; you'll enjoy the book.
