If you enjoy Russell Brand you will enjoy the book. Definitely written in his voice. If you have seen his act, you can just hear him telling the story. There are some parts that you are not sure if you should laugh or be disturbed. He has had a lot of ups and downs and certainly has a unique perspective.

    Only a 1 cuz I could not finish the book...

    I have seen Russell Brand in interviews and know he is a funny guy, but I just wan't getting it across the book. I was getting constant details of his life. From parents getting married til I don't even know when but I am guessing somewhere around the point of college, high school. This book offers great insight into what it might be to be drug addict, but the problem is I felt he was drugged up while writing it as I just couldn't follow all that often...Or it could have just been the boredom at every detail of his life that made me not follow the book very well. I got to page 200 saw that it didn't even seem to be half the book yet and had to put it down and walk away. Literally I set it down where I was reading and walked away. Didn't even bother to take it with me. I would have walked a way not feeling my time had been a total loss if I had at least laughed a little more....

    Don't Bother!

    I gave up on this piece of garbage after 50 pages or so. Boy am I glad I hadn't gone ahead and bought the second one at the same time!

    Boring

    A total waste of money. I waited forever to get to read this book and it was a total and utter disappointment. It was miserable! I forced myself to finish it and it was like torture.
