4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Worst, 19 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: You Are Awful (But I Like You): Travels Through Unloved Britain (Paperback)
"Travels Through Unloved Britain" is now a whole book genre rather than a specific book title, and there are lots of people desperate to find the worst town/hotel/meal/entertainment our nation has to offer. Despite that, Tim Moore's contribution to this over-crowded market place is a strong contender for "Best of the Worst". It easily makes mincemeat of books like "To Hull and Back", partly because it has a much better title (the "You Are Awful But I Like You" bit . . . ) and it is much more entertaining. Moore cleverly adds further levels of crapness by travelling around in an awful car, listening to terrible music, and finding the naffest possible SatNav to direct him. There are some genuine laugh-out-loud moments and we can thank him for visiting some of these places so that we don't have to, but overall it's his tone of bemusement (rather than the disdain of some of his fellow writers with this subject) that ultimately makes this a warm, funny book.
