5.0 out of 5 stars I for one need happy-fluff in my life!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 July 2021
It is always a mystery to me why anyone would purchase a book from an author they clearly dislike. Character assassination and presumption are really rather unpleasant traits. Don’t like the author, don’t buy the book, simple really. May I suggest a little advice … the chapter ‘short’.

Anyhoo, the last 12 months have been tough for most of us, so for me the book is perfectly timed. Personally I bought the book as I was pretty sure it would make me smile and give me some welcome respite from the crazy world we currently live in.

Thankfully the book is thoughtful, funny and yes for me … comforting happy-fluff!

1.0 out of 5 stars A book full of ineffective happy-fluff
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 August 2021
This isn’t the kind of book to read from cover to cover, rather something to dip into when you need a “comfort hit”. You may glean comfort from this book, regardless of what I think, and that’s wonderful, but it is not for me. A lot of the content is simply lists of music, books and films that the author likes and finds comfort in. There are anecdotes here, poetry there, some remedial philosophy inbetween. Mixed in with this is pretty much the kitchen sink - stories, quotes, a list of “things it is OK to say no to”, and an apparently serious discussion about the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
“The Comfort Book” is happy-fluff. If you need that in your life then you will enjoy this book. I’ve already seen glowing reviews for it so it is sure to be another bestseller, but as far as I am concerned the world wouldn’t suffer too much if this book didn’t exist.
