In a nutshell:
This is basically the book version of the hilarious Twitter account of the same name. I've been following it for a while, spent one glorious afternoon this autumn crying with laughter reading great chunks of the feed, and then sent it to my mum who did the same. So when I saw the book, I couldn't not buy it!
Who is it for?
Anyone who has a sneaking suspicion that they're probably one of 'those' British people - like a spiritual cross between Hugh Grant, Bridget Jones and a bowler-hat-wearing character in a Wodehouse novel. I've got to be honest, I was quite tempted to start ticking off all the things that made me smile with recognition. It was scary.
The chapter entitled 'Very British Weather: The 10 Types of Highly Problematic Meteorological Phenomena Every Brit Must Suffer' was very funny, and SO TRUE.
Least favourite part?
There were one or two little snippets that were definitely just variations on something from earlier in the book. There were also a few silly typos, which in a book largely made up of funny one-shots of 140 characters or less seemed a bit lazy.
Verdict? Go check out the Twitter feed! If you like it, you'll like this book. 4 stars from this (apparently) all-British girl. :)
