He is awful (now, anyway)

Use to be a journalist on the NME and was married to Julie Burchill (ages ago)

I thought it was utter shite

It was the 'Editor's Choice' on one of those book club things I got embroiled with

It's crap. But if you burn it for fuel this winter, 50p is a bargain!

Oh come on, its not that bad. It depends what you want. If you read it not expecting great literature you might enjoy it. I'd take it on a plane journey or long car journey. It's ok. I've just read it. I've read much, much worse.
