  Absolutely amazing

| | See all Evans1989's reviews (2)

I've never been much of a reader of books. Usually just stick to internet pages and such. Found myself not wanting to put this book down as I was reading it at an extraordinary pace.

A very VERY well written book!

This was an interesting read, full of quirky tales and great descriptions. Iv never read anything like it! It did make me laugh, and smile.

If your looking for something a bit different and out of the ordinary this is for you! Glad I read it!

  Funny, insightful, sexy, clever and quirky

I always wondered if Russell Brand actually talks in that funny way in his everyday life or if its just a stage act. From reading this book its clear that's really the way he is. I read this book in just a few days, feeling kind of addicted to Russell's prose. He recounts his early childhood days and goes right through to the time of BB Big Mouth, along the way telling the stories of his life that have got him to where he is today, including a big fat lust for heroin. This book made me want to read the dictionary and improve my vocabulary as his linguistic repertoire is so impressive and fluid. A must read for anyone. Makes you think there's much more to this chap than just skinny jeans and big hair.

This book was the best book i have read in ages! I had kept umming and ahhing about it, then was so glad when i finally bought it! I was never a really big fan of russels, but this book was so open and honest, funny and witty. I now love him!! The book is just "him" down to a t! He write just like he talks. It had me laughing one minute and touched the next! An excellent read! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! And for £2.99 u cant go wrong! Bargain! You won't be disappointed!!!!!

I do not understand the hype with this book as a big fan of russel i could not wait to read it , however it did not teach me anything that i did not already know about him , went on about his boring sexual conquests and was not a good read at all

Stick to the stand up russel !!! Please

This book was one of my best christmas presents and i got the first two seasons of ghost whisperer! It touched me as someone who hasent myself had an umblemished past. I related to a lot of the stories. The odd babysitter, the first sexual experience not going so well. My favourite parts were his mtv and uk play experiences as i did a similar thing at college got money to make what i like and exploited it. It's a book you can feel some empathy towards because we've all got a little Russell in us.....or should have!

  Hilarious but poigniant.

This book is brilliant, funny and had me laughing out loud on several occasions, despite this however, Russell definately did not have an easy ride to fame and some of his stories are quite shocking. This man is truely a legend!

One of the best books i have ever read. You really feel like you get to know the man behind the massive character. Russell is a ledge.

  A bitter-sweet tale of an extremely likeable character

I approached this book with a certain degree of apprehension and only really bought it due to its very reasonable price on Play, but can honestly say that my initial expectations of the book(and indeed, those of Mr Brand), have been confounded!
The book itself reads extremely well, in part due to Russell's evident love of the English language and the fact that his anecdotes are often so bizarre and hillarious that the chapters fly-by.
I came away from this book with a new-found appreciation for Brand and his work, and its weird now knowing all those strange little details that make-up his persona when we see him perform
