Top critical review
Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
on 12 November 2017
It was only when looking at Tim Minchins sublime "9 life lessons" commencement address to his Alma Mater that I realized what was troubling me about this book: It doesn't love, or even like, anything. Minchin made the point" we identify ourselves as part of a subculture by listing the things we hate", and this book is fundamentally a list of things that the author hates. Its reasonably written, but has no real higher purpose, not uplifting goal, simply saying "dont like that, nor that, nor that". Frankly, Victor Meldew did that, and it was funnier. Deserve better from someone who is probably the best political satirist in the English speaking world.
