I just found it tiresome and stopped reading it
on 1 March 2017
Certainly different, but almost unreadable after a couple of chapters. He just keeps repeating the same linguistic/comedic trick of juxtaposing bizarre or incongruous concepts and ideas in consecutive sub-clauses, as if he's a teenager who's just read William Burroughs (it also has some flavour of Woody Allen's early comic short stories in 'Side Effects'). Mildly amusing at the start, but unvarying and eventually irritating. I just found it tiresome and stopped reading it.
I was disappointed because this appeared in a list in The Guardian of various comedians' "funniest books of all time" and I think it was Bridget Christie who chose this. Not for me, but if other reviews on here persuade me otherwise I might try it again to see if I missed something.
