My Booky Wook – Book Review

Filed under: Book,Celebrity — smackamack @ 4:43 pm



Plot: Russell Brand learned early on to make a joke of fear and failure. From a troubled childhood in industrial Essex, England, to his descent into addictions to alcohol, drugs, and sex in the seamy underbelly of London, Brand has seen his share of both and miraculously lived to tell the tale. In My Booky Wook he leads readers on a rollicking journey through his disastrous school career, his infamous antics on MTV, and his multifarious sexual adventures. But this irreverent memoir is a story not simply of struggle but also of redemption, a testament to the difficulty of discovering what you want from life and the remarkable power of a bloody-minded determination to get it. My Booky Wook is a giddy trip through the brilliant mind of one of Britain’s most valuable exports.

I was really excited about this film, I find Russell Brand very exciting, devious, and highly interesting.  I mean, who doesn’t want to read about a sex, heroin, crack addict?!  Anyway, the book was so disapointing, especially for such a smart guy.  I found it repetitive and rather dull actually.  After you find out hes totally f’ed up, there isn’t much to know.
I recommend this for people who have an interest in British comedy and specifically Russell Brand.  Brand is definitely not for everyone and he has offended his fair share of the world.  I give this book 2/5 stars.
