Print
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.

Brand writes like Cher looks, circa 1980's! His corybantic voice rings through his crackerjack turn of phrase. Riveting are his insights into his self-destruction and restoration. His story is as intoxicating as a kiss from Molly. I'm hooked! - See more at: http://ottawa.bibliocommons.com/item/show/353002026_my_booky_wook#sthash.LKfA9czx.dpuf

The English language is this man's toy.

Well, this is Russell Brand, so I wasn't exactly expecting dainty language and sensitive subject matter. Still it was hysterical, and oddly touching in places, I was interested to perceive him as a person who is often -- although not always -- growing and learning, and that was unexpected. He can be very self-aware, and a lot of that material is painful. He's indeed courageous to be sharing it.

Very funny book although sad childhood stories told and somewhat hard to understand at times but I think that is due to not being from England.
