By Bantam Dave TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Oct. 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book, in which Harry Hill writes about a year in his life, is one of the funniest books that I have ever read.

It starts with a bang - the entry for January 1st describes how Amanda Holden spends her Christmas Day - and the humour never lets up for the following 364 days. It would be impossible to attempt to describe what happens during Harry's year but even if I were to mention that amongst the events that he writes about are his appearance on the TV reality gameshow `I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of My Tree If I Don't Like It', in which he has to live for two weeks up a walnut tree with Sylvester Stallone's mum and the conversation of a Bexhill theatre into a dog food factory you would still not believe the vast amount of inspired daftness that is contained in the books 468 pages.

I dare say that it wouldn't appeal to everybody but those who enjoy Harry Hill's brand of humour should not miss this book, because I guarantee they will love it.

One doughnut at tea-time is undoubtedly a treat, but could you manage two? Perhaps you could. But not without licking your lips!

Whether you could consume 20 in one sitting and still be convinced of their marvellous healing properties would be another thing altogether, though.

This book consists of one layer of zaniness, followed by a generous wadge of wackiness, oversized ladles of spontaneous silliness and many toppings of surreal clownery. It's all a bit much if your humour receptors have been surviving on much lower-calorie, fibrous stuff.

I can hear Harry's voice reel off the random silliness contained in this book - which helps somewhat - but I still don't connect with the humour in the same way I have done in the past when I can actually watch and listen to it - it just doesn't really lend itself to the written word.

If I had the patience, I would limit myself to reading one day's diary entry every day, as there seems to be a lot of random tomfoolery here that just blends into itself if I read more than a bit at a time.

Recommended to Hill connoisseurs only - if you've ever felt like he's on a stronger dosage than you are, I'd avoid. Sorry Harry - I still love the stand-up xxx

Annoying my family reading this, as I keep bursting out laughing. If you like Harry Hills surreal comedy, this really is a must. Funniest book for years.

If you read Livin' The Dreem in small doses, it can hit the spot if you find empathy with Harry's particular view of a celebrity or situation that is incorporated into a surreal diary event. Quite often I would laugh or at least chuckle after reading a few entries and then putting the book down. However, if you try to read too much in one sitting it can really grate and the style become annoying like a comedian constantly hammering home why the punch line is funny rather than just moving on. I guess with 365 days to report on this was probably inevitable. Worth reading but take no more than 2 times a day , with a few hours between each dose.

Looking for a belly-laugh book?
Look elsewhere. There were some really
amusing moments, especially the continuing
story of Harry's grandmother who bought a holiday
home in Iraq, but a lot is average.
If you are an HH fan, buy it for the collection.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
i love harry hill and his tv progammes,
tv burp and youve been framed

i think hes very funny

this book is a diary of one hectic year of his so called showbiz life and the
goings on in bexhill,where harry lives with his mother,occasional fiancee filipino lay dee and a dog who works at gatwick airport

all this plus a detailed account of all the floppy-collared loons dinners

a very funny,stupid and nonsensical book
and those who say otherwise....FIGHT

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Yes, the book has lots of funny observations, but they are delivered one after the other, in a relentless fashion without a break. I love Harry Hill is his TV show: a TV clip followed by Harry's unique observations, and this combination works beautifully. It's the ocntrast that is so effective. In the book, there is no contrast. I('m afraid it's going to the charity store (and I've only read 25 pages).

I'm really sorry, Harry. Truly I am. Loved your early shows and your stand-up. Love TV Burp. But really can't click with your books. Got badly stung with "Flight from Deathrow", which I was really looking forward to - but thought was awful. This is better, but after the first thirty pages or so I hadn't even smiled, let alone laughed. Rambling, unfunny, silly (not in a good "TV Burp"-type way, either), infantile rather than surreal. A parody of the majority of modern pop culture? Why bother? The overblown pomposity and grandiosity of modern celebrity does a fairly good job of unknowing self-parody anyway. I just don't get it, which bothers me. Both because I really, really like Harry (I even laugh like a drain at "You've Been Framed"!), and because almost every other reviewer loves this book. So is it just me? Just bear in mind that when you read the glowing praise on here, other opinions are available. I would strongly suggest reading a few pages before you buy - and I hope you enjoy it, I truly do. Sadly, I didn't.
