My Booky Wook was one of the most revered and successful celebrity autobiographies of all time (not including the Bible or anything by Oprah). The honesty. Picking up where he left off in My Booky Wook, movie star and comedian Russell Brand details his rapid climb to fame and fortune in a shockingly candid, reso. A child's garden of vices, My Booky Wook is also a relentless ride with a comic mind clearly at the wheel. The bloke can write. He rhapsodizes about.
He states very clearly that he knows he is one of the privileged and the system is put into place to keep the privileged at the top and keep a divide between the classes. He discusses his struggle with the part he plays in that, how although he fought so hard for stardom he now realizes it isn't what he thought it would be, and actually goes against his new sense of enlightenment.
It's a good read. There are times I didn't like him very much, but other times I admired his insight and his willingness and desire to help other who suffer from addiction. I think Russell Brand is a very intelligent and funny man, and I liked the first book, but I found myself bored and distancing myself at a number of places in this book.
I want to make clear that I think adults should let their freak flags fly as long as there is consent all the way around, but what I read here was a man who could not stand to ever be alone and left to his own non-onanistic devices.
And that was just sad, to see someone who couldn't stand his own company, but also could not manage to know any of his conquests in depth. He needs constant connection, craves a relationship, but sabotages anything that could become a relationship.
He sleeps with a lot of women, which seems like living the dream for many, but because it's a compulsion, there's no joy.
Reading about him sulking in a bungalow in Hawaii while filming Sarah Marshall because he could find nothing of interest to him felt like I was seeking entertainment in his suffering.
At the end, he is married to Katy Perry, but they're doomed to failure, with rumors flying that very much sound like an extension of the book -- a man who can neither be alone or really with someone. When you take away these passages, there's not a lot left over -- except the odd award show or radio show scandals that are well-known. Paperback Verified Purchase.
To preface this review, I must say I'm an avid Brand fan and adore his first memoir: Amazingly, Brand is able to convey this frenetic pace in words, too. This is my second time reading "My Booky Wook 2. In this second memoir, Brand reprises his writing voice to catch up readers on his latest adventures. And like his first, he does it with a powerful wit and captivating energy. But this edition seems to be eager to impress. He seems pressed to diversify, and use the wealth of his growing diction.
For some reason, it seems even more exaggerated in this second edition, and now appears more out of place. There's an interesting irony contained within the book. It focuses on all the events that led to Brand's marriage to ex-wife Katy Perry, but gives a cursory glance at his current girlfriend, Jemima Khan.
They seemed to run into a charity party and now they're seeing each other.
As his life has become less sexualized, his language, at times, appears to be filled with sexual digressions and fantasies. Enjoyable, but perhaps a bit repetitive. This is a nearly perfect sequel to a great life. Brand is a terrific writer, and I would look forward to reading whatever comes next. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very well entertained reading this book. He is a good writer, funny man, and he seems like a genuinely nice person.
I did not read his first book, but I now plan to.
Although my title for this review seems cold and monetarily-based, it is my highest compliment, because I don't regret spending one penny for this book on Kindle when I really should be using my local library. I would recommend this on Audible. If Russell was reading.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed his book and liked him as a person because I'm not a cool cat, and I do not share his substance, celebrity or sexual problems, but I got a view of his humanity and heart, and that is where I share my experience with him.
Sincerely a goofy, chunky, tall chick from Pittsburgh, PA. See all reviews.
