In recent years, Charlie Brooker has become my favourite writer. I try and read his articles as and when they are published, but I always make sure I get his books and this one was well worth waiting for.
I tried to read this as slowly as I could, knowning it will be a while before I can get a new one! This plan did not work out though, as his writing is far too moreish.
He has a fantastic way of writing about important issues and absolute nonsense practically in the same paragraph. He has the ability to really make you think about any of the issues he has chosen to mention - politics, the economy - and hopefully see it in a new light. Of course, the book is full of outlandish insults and disgusting imagery, as all of his writing is, but surely that is part of his charm!
This book made me laugh so hard people around me stared like I was crazy, but, true to his word, parts made me furious at the things he was pointing out. Hopefully everyone else will read this and think a little - and maybe take things a little less seriously from now on.
