I just finished reading “Silver Linings Playbook” (which I gobbled up in a day) so I figured I’d better bang off some of the other reviews I have to write so that I can go on about that one. I am pretty sure there was just this book and then the last Sookie Stackhouse novel to go then I am caught up so that is not too bad.
I will preface this by stating that I have never been a Russell Brand fan in the past. In fact he kind of annoyed me (might have been the hair cut). But a couple of months back my boyfriend stumbled upon a documentary of his and that showed me another side of him and it prompted me to read his book. Lucky for me it had been sitting on our shelf as it was given to my bf as a gift a few years ago.
I am really glad that I gave it a go and I was very impressed to see that Brand is a very intelligent and insightful man. Of course there is also a lot of humor in there too. This book relates the early years of Brand’s life and the beginnings of his ascent to fame. Of course there is also quite a bit about his addiction and recovery in there too.
I now have new found respect for the man. I have started reading his second book which so far I am not getting in to as much (which is why I have read two and a half other books instead of finishing) but I will come back around to it I am sure.
