3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting concept, topical in 12-13, 22 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Idiot Government Reviews (A Laugh Out Loud Satirical Comedy) (The Idiot Reviews Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
It's an unusual idea and it works quite well. Each product reviewed leads to a further incident in a tangled web of political machinations, some of which are very funny. The way the author ties up the individual incidents is clever, and often funnier than the incidents themselves.
One can easily identify the real characters behind the names and the topical politics of 2012-13. But, as with all books of this nature, in five years time it will have lost most of its punch. The corrupt and self-serving nature of British politicians is now so well known that the reader cannot avoid approaching the book with a somewhat jaded view, and with expectations of predictability. However, the author's choice of bizarre, slapstick incidents manages to overcome this, and I found myself chuckling in many places. My favourite was Chancellor Gary Osburn's mistaking his staff for protesters and spraying them with pepper spray.
