It's not just grammar either; it repeats itself, follows no proper kind of structure and contradicts itself. An example of that last one is in reference to Hugh's famous House audition tape in 2003 - bearing in mind he was born in 1959 - the prologue calls it 'the most important audition of the 37-year-old's life'. Fast forward to the section where the book revisits this same event and Laurie is now apparently 45.
It is an absolute shambles, if it was a school essay I'd throw it away and say 'start again'. It is in fact a published book that we're expected to pay £7.99 for, when in fact the writing is so lame and the insights so second hand and haphazard it may as well be the former. So I think in this instance I'd say give all that money back, apologise to Laurie for putting his name on such a waste of paper, and help finance a new one - signed off by the man himself because then I guarantee it would be pristine.
Don't get me wrong there is some reasonable content in there and for posterity I'm glad I own it. But it is so disappointing that a few glances here and there tell you how shameful it is. In contrast, the first lines of Laurie's 'the Gun Seller' tell you you're reading a masterpiece.
Anthony Bunko writes as if I've just landed from outer space, am totally ignorant in the ways of British life, customs and comedy and have a desire to be patronised to death.
I'm not quite sure who this book was aimed at. But like some of your other reviewers I found it a little like eating a thick sandwich of irrelevance with Hugh Laurie being the less than adequate filling.
