The Elton John Story by Mark Bego
Okay, I loved this book, I am a big fan of Elton John, fascinating and all that - but it doesn't say if he is gay in real life or just when he is on stage or recording etc. I wish I knew the answer.
Idi Amin by Steve Dougherty
Brilliant in The Butler, fantastic in The Crying Game, loved him in The Shield and great in Good Morning Vietnam - this man des...
Whose Body? Just gave me a great idea for a reality/celebrity/quiz show!
I truly believe it would be a massive hit!
Every week, six celebrities are asked to pose nude with a paper bag on their heads.....and then 3 contestants have to guess who they are!
The ratings would be amazing.
I would suggest that Rosie O'Donnell, Oprah Winfrey, Ricky Gervais, Kirstie Alley and Seth Rogan and J...
The title of this book hits the nail right on the head.
I have lost count of the times I have gone to bed drunk with a beautiful woman only to wake up, hungover and shocked to find that the pretty woman I went to bed with the night before has been replaced by what I can only say is usually a horrendous female version of my Uncle David...but unlike David they have facial hair.
As for the boo...
This book was a total waste of my time and money and no use to me whatsoever, as I actually went to Paris for my summer vacation.
I suggest that in future, before I read a book - or buy one, that I do some geographical research as these Islands are miles away from France.
That said, and in fairness to Greece, despite popular belief, not all Greeks are in fact bearing gifts.
My friend, St...
What the hell?
Absolutely awful book.
The main character performed NO magic, made nothing vanish and there was NO mention of his award winning and long running Las Vegas show.
I feel cheated. I was expecting a nasty looking character, covered in make-up, pretending not to be gay, prancing around conjuring things.
What did I get?
Some whiny story about blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
A sad tale about a bent over college football star determined to play for the "Fighting Irish' who sadly never makes it out of Paris.
Hideously deformed and mocked by other footballers who laughed at his affliction. I hate people like that. So what, he was retarded, no need to keep mentioning it.
It was poignant to hear him shout "The balls, the balls" when yearning to just grab a footba...
I have to say the title of this book is very misleading.
I had hoped that this cookbook would explain to me, in detail, the various ways one could cook the author Pat Conroy, whom I admire very much.
I was hoping there would be recipes, should you be able to convince above mentioned author (Pat Conroy - mentioned again here), to allow you to cook him.
Sadly, tonight at least, there will...
What man hasn't, at one time or another, tried on a pair of women's shoes?
I for one have often sneakily worn stilettos, heels and thigh high boots, and danced around the house while my wife is out shopping. I think this is far more common than most men admit.
As a kid I would sneak on a pair of my mother's sandals, during visits to relatives, just like all the other kids I suppose, I would...
Another great book by Homer.
The guy amazes me, he really does, sometimes you think he is a buffoon, an idiot even, and then he pulls this masterpiece out of his bag of tricks.
How he gets the time to write, what with working at Mr Burn's nuclear power plant and dealing with that rascal Bart I have no idea, but there is obviously more to the yellow skinned Simpson than meets the eye.
This is not a book about a group of female dwarfs living in a trailer park in Sarasota, Florida.
That book has not yet been written.
If you can get over that fact and move on and if like me by Chapter 8 realize that this is nothing to do with pole dancing midgets or a beach resort in the Southern United States then you may find yourself liking this book.
The Quiet American by Graham Green...
Probably the same 12 angry men I saw today who had their cars towed from outside my office building. Now they were REALLY angry, but, they only had themselves to blame, as well placed signs do state, very clearly in fact, that parking is reserved for designated pass holders. I am sorry, but I make NO apologies for calling the tow truck on them.
The Flintstones Christmas in Bedrock by Kid Rhino...
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. One minute I was overjoyed that the little boy was heading to see Santa Claus then the next I was saddened by the fact that the poor kid lived in a crappy house, for me it was an emotional roller coaster. For this reader it became the Bipolar Express.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Man makes a monster. Monster has bolts in his neck, big shoes and looks l...
I can answer that very easily, and without writing a novel about it.
The heart lies within the thorax in the body. This location is called the mediastinum.
The heart is about the size of your fist and is located substernal, center thoracic, superior to the stomach with the apex on the left.
If you are going to write a novel, then do some research please.
Word of warning. If you are a...
Silly me! I thought this book was about a sperm donor who discovered that he had fathered 1000 splendid SONS!!
Anyway, I read it and I enjoyed it, but if anyone thinks that they can write about a man, a sperm donor, who fathers 1000 sons, who are all splendid then let me know and I will help write it.
However, if Vince Vaughn is reading this then I do not need your help nor assistance.
Basically chubby girl ends up getting shagged by two blokes, quite plausible if you have ever lived in London and seen some some of the chubby yet oddly pretty girls that hang around Kings Cross.
Anyway, the book, a little more lighthearted than Anne Frank's effort, so points for that. Not a good book to take on tour with your rugby team chums.
The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas: A Complete...
A man, who looks like Leonardo Dicaprio, goes to a lunatic asylum and encounters other people, who all look like famous actors and actresses, which is odd to say the least, he is then either mad himself or someone is playing a terrible April's fools joke on him.
You, the reader, decide.
Lady Bird Johnson: An Oral History by Michael Gillette
She invented oral? Wow! I did not know that! Or...
A HUNDRED times better than Breakfast at IHOP, Breakfast at Denny's and the ill-advised Breakfast at Waffle House ( the one of the I-95 near Brunswick, GA) - Really? A grumpy waitress, overcooked eggs, and my waffle had certainly seen better days!
Also, the bathroom was filthy, a message to the toilet pig...please flush!
I would recommend Breakfast at Tiffany's over all these other places,...
