5.0 out of 5 stars My ribs hurt..., 13 Jun. 2011
'The internet is a playground' by David Thorne is without a doubt the funniest book I have ever read. His text is extremely edgy, taboo and at times completely out of order, which is perhaps why I like it so much. What Mr.Thorne has done is achieve two principle things. The first is to write a rip-roaringly funny book, I had read some of the articles before on his website but I think if anything I laughed more reading them for a second time. The second achievement of Mr.Thorne's may well be completely inadvertent. What he has managed to do is create a a book that flies in the face of unnecessary and completely overzealous censorship. In an age where so many writers choose to conform to what is essentially becoming a predictable and somewhat 'nuclear' read, Mr.Thorne's book is a breath of fresh air. The book is in no way written to offend, nor should it be seen as a text which will 'corrupt' the youthful generation. In short Mr. Thorne's book tests and tries social acceptability and norms, and finds them stead fast and in place, without the need for any book burning!

Five Stars.
