3.0 out of 5 stars Ok in parts, 18 Nov 2013
This review is from: Bonkers: My Life in Laughs (Hardcover)
I decided to read "Bonkers - my life in laughs" after having heard it as "Book of the week" on Radio 4 and enjoyed it. I thought that it would be good to read the whole book having only heard the condensed version. I wish I hadn't bothered. The condensed version on the radio was much better than the full printed version.

In my opinion the book contained too much name dropping and irrelevant chapters containing `correspondence' between Ms. Saunders and the likes of Dawn French and Joanna Lumley. When you read an autobiography you want to learn about the person who is writing it, that is why I enjoyed the beginning and end of the book - the parts that contain the most information about Ms. Saunders.

The book was funny and in parts did make me laugh but it just felt that there was too much padding in parts. It is certainly not one of the best autobiographies that I have read. It is a book that will make you laugh, have you interested in some parts but will also make you skim read some sections. It could have been much better.
