My Booky Wook is a giddy trip through the brilliant mind of one of Britain's most valuable exports
on April 27, 2016
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 have always been a huge fan of Russell Brand and perhaps that is what motivated me to purchase this book. For anyone who wants a look into a twisted mind, I highly suggest this book. Russell is raw and real in his writing and that is when you get an inside look on how this guy got to be where he is today. I didn't know what to expect when I bought the book but I couldn't put it down once I started reading. It's rare to get an inside look into a celebrities life through their eyes and I feel like this book did just that. Sex, drugs and comedic humor are what you'll find in this book. Toss your morals out the window, or at least hang them out to dry while you're reading this book. In my opinion, this was a great book and made me a bigger fan of his. Even if you're not a fan of Russell Brand, I would suggest reading this book because he has had one heck of an interesting life thus far. I actually had to google some of the words within. Smart guy. Excellent writer. Candid, raw look into his early years.
