4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a Johnny Vegas fan then this is for you, 10 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Becoming Johnny Vegas (Kindle Edition)
Not a cozy read by any means, with some excruciatingly uncomfortable and poignant occurences described in detail by Michael Pennington, (he who shall become Vegas), through his loving yet misunderstood childhood where loneliness and desperation are the norm. How the book reveals the inner workings of a tormented sole is a credit to the writing style and the number of incidents that are indeed cringe-worthy makes it hard to put the book down mid-chapter. It becomes more uncomfortable that the end of the book is revealingly penned by Johnny as this sometimes desperate and vengeful alter ego takes to the fore. Booze, failed post pubescent sexual liaisons and some really great comedy moments all add up to a book that is not the best I ever read featuring pottery and hard-core religion, though I feel a better person for the experience..
