Cruel, acerbic, impassioned, gleeful, frequently outrageous and always hilarious, Charlie Brooker's Screen Burn collects the best of the much-loved Guardian Guide columns in one easy-to-read-on-the-toilet package. Sit back and roar as Brooker rips mercilessly into Simon Cowell, Big Brother, Trinny and Susannah, Casualty, Davina McCall, Michael Parkinson...and almost everything else on television. This book will make practically anyone laugh out loud.

Funny and Original. And cheap. The book, not him, or maybe he is. I don't know.

it's also this price instore, got it a couple of months back... so it might not be now... but still it has been, see no reason why it's not now

Picked this and one of Charlie's other books (Dawn of The Dumb) in my local HMV for €5 each. Brought them on holidays to Miami.

This is the funnier of the two I'd say, but both are recommended!

The only problem is the articles / TV he's reviewing in this book are all very turn of the century (pre-2004, when the book was published). You may not remember a lot of it!

Buy the hell of it all if you want a more up to date one. That is possibly the funniest of the 3.

Might just do that mr.potato_head. Cheers!

I hate Charlie Booker. Not because he's a bad writer or anything, just because he gets to marry Konnie Huq and I don't!

I always had him down as having a Vegas wedding with Aiseleyne out of Big Brother. So good on him for poking something of higher rank.

The first book (this one) was undoubtedly a laugh out loud read the trouble is you get used to his style of writing (or is that ranting) and it soon loses its appeal. By the time I got towards the end of The Hell Of It I was very much looking forward to something a bit more light hearted. Perhaps one for the toilet... (Along with the QI book of general ignorance which is a must for any lav!)

Anyway; this isn’t about reviews is it? £3 for a book published ages ago... hardly a steal but I liked it so worth a read
