To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Returned. I’m not paying a tenner to be told how rubbish my life must be because I still read fiction when Jimmy has stopped reading fiction now that he’s a big hot shot and doesn’t need the escapism! I was finding the book a chore anyway but when I read that little nugget of nonsense I immediately turned it in for a refund, which I’ll spend on some wonderfully entertaining fiction thanks. If you want to be a comedian, and not a very funny one at that, and believe every other job is below you then go for it. Waste your hours on this narcissistic tripe. Meanwhile, if you live in the real world don’t bother. Just as I was starting to warm to Jimmy Carr this book has reminded me that my initial perception of him was totally accurate.
I am a big fan of Jimmy. I go to all of his stand up tours. I watch the tv shows he’s on. He’s brilliant. So when I saw he was bringing out a book I pre-ordered it straight away. I am so disappointed to say that this book was terrible. It’s so random. It’s not in the slightest but funny and it makes no sense. I hated it after first chapter but carried on Incase it got better- it didn’t. Sorry Jimmy but this was awful.
Shame. Heard Jimmy interviewed on BBC Breakfast and thought what a nice guy.. kind of grown up you know? But still funny. Thoughtful and kind. So bought his book. But seriously I don’t want to read “c”… word ..Multiple times on first chapters..just don’t. Or M*****F***** it’s simply not funny..!! Especially within context of books subject. Thought he was reaching out to perhaps address mental health but this book is self indulgent waffle jumping on the current hot topic to make a buck. Sorry.
