Advantages: Stunning Photography
Disadvantages: Not an informative read
If you are in a dentist surgery or waiting at the opticians or dentists, pick this up - it's a very light read, in fact there is,compared to most magazines, very little to read- it is mainly pictures- and I have to say top quality photography. Now to the confession, I am not into celebrity gossip and news. I love reading, but with all the books available I cannot understand why reading this magazine is how you want to spend your time. I know their readership must be huge as otherwise how could they afford the millions they pay for exclusives. I am honest enough to acknowledge that if celebrity is your interest you couldn't do better than Hello Magazine, as on the occasions I have read it- I noted that it was never in any way malicious and didn't revel in taking unflattering photos- in fact quite the opposite. The Magazine is full of celebrity, royal and high society news and features-it is very much a peek into the lives of the rich and famous. Almost every week there is an exclusive- a wedding or christening or similar together with interviews with the faces we see on our tv and movie screens. There is a page which keeps you informed of the week's celebrity news, together with puzzles, a tv guide and some tasty recipes.So from that perspective I couldn't fail to recommend it to it's target readership.
Summary: It makes people happy- just not me
