3.0 out of 5 stars A Curates Egg, 6 Sep 2008
This review is from: We're British, Innit: An Irreverent A to Z of All Things British (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The curate's egg was good in parts and I couldn't better sum up this book than by using this description.

There are some genuinely laugh out loud items, quite a lot of them, in fact. Interestingly, most of these feature in the first half of the book. I did not find the second half nearly so funny.

However, the book is definitely worth dipping into and would be very useful to have with you on a journey if you needed to be constantly checking changing departure times and couldn't allow yourself to get too absorbed in what you were reading. It would be useful to read out loud to the members of your party in waiting rooms and departure lounges.

I do recommend this book as it will give some really good laughs. However, be warned, it isn't quite so funny as it thinks it is.
