I Can Make You Hate Hardback
Would you like to eat whatever you want and still lose weight?
Who wouldn't? Keep dreaming, imbecile. In the meantime, if you'd like to read something that alternates between laugh-out-loud-funny and apocalyptically angry, keep holding this book.
Steal it if necessary. In his latest collection of rants, raves, hastily spluttered articles and scarcely literate scrawl, Charlie Brooker proves that there is almost nothing in this universe, big or small, that can't reduce a human being to a state of pure blind hatred.
It won't help you lose weight, feel smarter, sleep more soundly, or feel happier about yourself.
It will provide you with literally hours of distraction and merriment.
It can also be used to stun an intruder, if you hit him with it correctly (hint: strike hard, using the spine, on the bridge of the nose).

Review by dtw42
More of the usual sort of stuff from Mr Charlton Brooker. That is to say, an endless array of new ways to say an event on TV or in life as a whole is horrible. Then about once every fifty or sixty pages he'll trip you up by liking something. In this one the dislikes include Paul Dacre of the <i>Daily Mail</i>, and David Cameron. The likes include fatherhood: in case you think that means he's going to go all sappy and soppy, he does, but only for about four pages and then normal service is resumed.
