Slightly smaller than I imagined (a little bigger than A5) but that's good as it will fit better on the bookshelf. It's a gift so I've read a couple of pages without breaking the spine and it seems like a good read. Would recommend!
I'm an avid fan of anything by Charlie Brooker - I regularly watch the annual Wipe shows, have seen all of Black Mirror, and a few of Newswipe, so I'm very familiar with Brooker's satire that provides a special, unique view on things.
I'd say this book is a cross between 'Motivational Quotes to Help You Be More Positive' by Chris (Simpsons Artist), and 1/26th of Encyclopedia Britannica with a focus on the Britain. The former book I really enjoyed - and something you only properly enjoy by reading it out loud with a slightly exaggerated voice. Reading this one, I couldn't help but hear it in Philomena's voice and imagining her facial reactions. At one point Philomena questions whether the book was even worth making at all. It's so very wonderful to see creative works not taking themselves too seriously, not having over inflated egos, and trying to participate you in the joke so you share the like-mindedness.
The foreward alone made me laugh out loud as I read it to myself. My particular favourite aspect about Cunk is when she reflects on something that we typically take for granted and then completely turns it on its head. There are also many little boxes with unresolved questions throughout the book that are reminiscent of /r/showerthoughts on Reddit. This lateral thinking leaves a hell of a lot to appreciate and I welcome it all.
At less than £10 this book is a good price for some good laughs. I would recommend to anyone. Of course it's not as informative as reading Wikipedia all day long, but it's much more thought-provoking and entertaining.
