This review is from: Something Sensational to Read in the Train: The Diary of a Lifetime (Paperback)
I wasn't, by any stretch of the imagination, a Gyles Brandreth fan. But after reading an excerpt from this book I was intrigued, bought a copy, started reading it and couldn't stop. It's really a very good read - charming, cheeky, silly, sharp and surprisingly perceptive and wise at certain points. Some published diaries are very hit and miss affairs, with long periods of dull detail, but this one skips along at a lively pace and always works hard to keep you interested and entertained.
