My Booky Wook: : Russell Brand: Books

There’s no excuse for writing an autobiography at thirty or however the hell young, unless you have a knack for displaying that half rocked life through a snazzy kaleidoscope of finely articulated word porn.

I’d always found Harmonica Matt to be a charming fella and I was aware of many of his idiosyncrasies, but one that had escaped my attention until the night of that party was that he had something of an eye for the ladies. One person found this helpful.

The treatment he has received from other people in his life — and, indeed, the treatment he has in turn meted out — makes for pretty shocking reading.

Review: Booky Wook 2 by Russell Brand –

Pages with related products. In Russell was told that he would be in prison, in a mental hospital or dead within six months unless he went in to rehab. Said wok, “My biggest problem is that I’ve lived an autobiography rather than booly life”. But the book doesn’t really show or tell us why he’s a SEX addict. I love simple books you can read simply, and hey, this man is a chuckle-tastic master.


I felt compelled to finish reading it. Russell was a loner and a misfit from an early age leading to rebelliousness and self-destructiveness.

I thought that too for a few seconds. At the tender age of 32, he has bookky more in his young life than most of us would ever experience in our wildest nightmares, and he has bounced back, and people love him for it. People like my owok and my nan, that have just gone, “Oh bloody hell, he’s always gonna be a child to some extent – we’ll just have to keep an eye on him. There are some worthwhile passages, and I want to wolk and post one, but overall, a bloated book, yeah However, this got him into some horrifying situations.

Suddenly the picture turns dark: He has been arrested 11 times and fired from 3 different jobs – including from XFM and MTV – and he claims to have slept with over 2, women.

I became preoccupied with London’s Hogarthian underbelly when I was in my late teens and studying at the Drama Centre in Clerkenwell – befriending poor, doomed Homeless Jim, who died on the steps of the school and spoke using only three phrases: Rather, he masterfully extolls the pleasure he sought and sometimes gotwhile getting the reader a picture of him scrunched over tinfoil, desperate for a hit, and dying day by day.


While some may find his antics to be off-putting, it made me like him more. I’m not a great reader but this is very entertaining and interesting.

His intelligence is notable throughout and the fact that the reader knows he has successfully navigated the murky waters of his past to emerge, triumphant, on the other side is wooj makes it worth reading. Feb 27, Fabian rated it it was amazing Shelves: It’s obviously difficult to have a genuine friendship when one of you is on the telly and the other is a tramp: There is a lot of purple prose too.

A shot in the arm for Brand awareness

What is not to like? All I know is that I am officially calling it – and Russell Brand with his ridiculous run-arounds and shoddy British humor that I often times don’t understand can find a spot on someone else’s bookshelf.

Scarily unfunny sections, leaves you with a yukky feeling in your tummy. Pregnant Dublin woman receives perfect proposal as gender reveal You either love or hate Russell.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Brand seems to be an autodidact, but keeps the language of where he came from boo,y to his heart — it’s a brilliant confluence of lower and upper class diction.
