This review is from: How to Leave Twitter: My Time as Queen of the Universe and Why This Must Stop (Kindle Edition)
There is a passage in How To Leave Twitter etc. which talks about Grace Dent sitting with her agent trying to think of a book to write. And that, perhaps, is the problem. Dent didn't approach a publisher or literary agent with a fantastic book idea, they asked her to write something in order to cash in on her 'that woman from the telly' celebrity status and Twitter follower count. The result is a pretty irrelevant book about her social-networking likes and dislikes. Worse, the whole thing is written in a list within a list within a list form, which gets tedious from about the fifth page onwards.
I'm fond of Grace Dent, but she's definitely funnier when restricted to 140 characters.
