Product Description

Review

Reviews of Booky Wook 2: "Devotees will be devouring Russell's outrageous Booky Wook 2: This Time it's Personal. This man loves to offend and to challenge the reader by being incredibly funny." The Times "This book [...] reminds you of how funny and original he is; also how British; also what a loss to the old motherland." Sunday Times Culture "A witty and engaging raconteur, Brand makes no apologies and takes no prisoners throughout this lively account of his (sex) life and career." Hot Press --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the bookstore . . . Booky Wook 2!

As incredible as it may seem, the honesty, the mayhem, the lascivious scandal of Russell Brand’s magnum opus, My Booky Wook, are surpassed by Booky Wook 2! This time it’s personal, as Brand unabashedly charts his rise from crack-house junkie to Hollywood star while indulging in sexual excesses that make Caligula seem like a prudish spinster—encountering thousands of women, often three or four at a time (for efficiency), on his quest to find true love. Here is the riveting story of what happens when insatiable desire meets limitless opportunity and a punk from the wrong side of the tracks is given the keys to the palace. Indeed, Brand’s riot of self-indulgence would be rampaging still were it not for a well-aimed bottle tossed to the head, delivered from the hand of the exquisite Katy Perry, one of the world’s biggest pop stars.

Can true love conquer all? Is it a force more powerful than the raging libido of an insatiable professional madman? The answer lies within . . . Booky Wook 2!

While Brand's first book explored his childhood and rise of fame, Booky Wook 2 explores his life while he was famous. It's a bit smaller than his first book but I don't think it could have been made longer without being too long; it's a perfect length. In his first book he inserted some of his ideology as it pertained to his life, this was a nice touch that I really admired. I found myself wanting more and with this new book he has kindly obliged.

I found this book more exciting that the first book, a feeling that must come with the increased fame Brand had acquired at the time of this book. Fans of the first book would probably enjoy this book. Reading the first book is not required and those who are only interested in Brand's tale of fame would be advised that is may be better to begin with this book and then move on it predecessor.

Like the first book Brand writes with good form and a healthy vocabulary, I often found myself making notes of words to remember them for later.

Brand's follow up to Wook#1 is a nice continuation and well worth the read. (It's quick and easy once you get used to his British slang again.) This time round Russell concentrates more on his transition to America and the movies he's recently made. It's quite timely right now considering that his movie Arthur is being released and that's the point the book ends at. If you're a fan of him in Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Get Him to the Greek, then enjoyment of Wook#2 will naturally follow.

In comparison to his life as a junkie, sobriety just isn't as entertaining. There are still plenty of lewd tales, however, you can tell that he's written them from behind a filter of being in love with Katy. The book wraps up with him and Katy Perry getting together, and I suppose this will be the topic of Wook#3.

My favourite thing about this book and its predecessor is the title. As far as celebrity memoirs go, it's pretty forgettable, even for fans of Russell Brand. Um, nice cover art, though. I grasping at straws here.
