Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Young Man's Passage (Paperback)
If I could sum this book up in one word, I would say that it is - magnificent! But as this is a review, I shall elaborate further, with much delight. :-)
After being a fan of Mr Clary's for many years, I decided to purchase his books (yes I know, shame on me tut tut, slapped wrists, I should have done it sooner) and was mesmerised and hooked from reading the very first chapter. This particular book of four of his; 'A Young Man's Passage' (I adore his innuendo lol) is magnificent in my opinion. It is a deeply-moving read in some chapters and it is hilarious in other sections of the book also as Julian transports us on a most interesting journey throughout moments in his life, and during this wonderful journey that unfolds, we see a glimpse into the mind and heart of a very nice person as you will discover that he is so much more than a stage/tv/radio performer/comedian - or a 'National Trinket' as he cutely describes himself. He is a gifted author also. It was an absolute joy to devour every sentence that he wrote in this book, this is a work to treasure as you feel the; agonies, tears, laughter, joy, pride, courage, and many more emotions that he experienced in different stages in his life. His words capture your mind instantly as he describes quite vividly and expertly, precious moments in time that he fondly (and not so fondly) remembers in great detail.
A man of many talents, writing is another gift that he possesses in abundance. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book over the duration of just a few days (yes it is that good), and therefore here is my review of it. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to readers and fans out there, it truly IS magnificent! Oh and i'm so glad that he won Celebrity BB too, a worthy winner!
I'm eagerly anticipating spending some highly-entertaining time in his presence in the near future as I hear he's touring Britain very soon, fabulous!
I enjoyed this book so much so that I will most definately be purchasing all of his others that he has created and I am impatiently awaiting the delivery of his Lord of the Mince DVD, which shall be arriving through my letterbox sometime this week, oooh! Sometimes, it would be SO handy having a time machine wouldn't it folks!
So it's 5 stars from me for this book. He deserves it!
