I agree with the other reviews on here - it's an excellent book, well worth buying, and I would definitely recommend it. One thing I would add is that it's a well structured and edited book. Rather than feeling like a disparate collection of TV reviews, the book holds together well. Each chapter has a general theme,such as British Drama, American TV, Celebrities, Sports TV, etc; and breaking up the themed chapters, running through the spine of the book, are his annual 'Aerial Telly Awards', which are included chronologically from 2006 onwards. Basically, each piece is laugh-out-loud funny, but the book also has a forward momentum that keeps you reading and makes it difficult to put down; and ultimately all these pieces come together to form a very satisfying whole.
I laughed one hell of a lot reading this. At times it brought tears to my eyes. I've rated it at four stars as an objective assessment, but when you factor in the price - a ridiculously low 77p - it's five stars with icing and a strawberry on top. If you want to laugh yourself insensate, do yourself a favour and buy this book.
Reading them again in book form, I laughed all over again. I punched the table. I very nearly soiled my pants (that might just be an age thing, though). Many times I gasped and thought YOU CAN'T SAY THAT! but then sniggered all the same and checked to see if anyone saw me.
Donaghy has a great way of saying the unsayable and cutting through the crap. His reviews (more Wildean autopsies, really) are as controversial, outrageous and scathingly witty as we all secretly want to be.
You won't read a more laugh out loud, un-PC, hilarious book this year.
