Yeah I'm a Top Gear fan. It just happened; I have never cared for cars in my entire life so that I became a Top Gear fan is frankly astonishing. I don't even have a driving license.

Anyway, I was quite sad when Top Gear was put on hiatus earlier this year because of the "fracas" (that word will probably be associated with Jeremy Clarkson from now on) and then never came back because Jeremy Clarkson was fired from the show. So, I comforted myself with reruns of the show and with this book. A Jeremy Clarkson book is perfect antidote for anyone that suffering from Top Gear withdrawal because he is as outrageous when he writes as he is when he talks, and I love that. In this world of PC is it nice to have someone that just don't give a damn about that.

This is Jeremy's chronicles, collected and published as a book and I love having a book like this lying beside my bed for when I just want to read something easy before I sleep or I can't sleep because ever chapter is 3.5 pages long and that means that I can read a couple of chapters than try to sleep again. Perfect!

I enjoyed reading this so much that I feel the need to buy a new Jeremy Clarkson book soon, luckily for me do I have an unread Richard Hammond book that I now can start to read. ;)

Margitte My husband is such a devotee to Jeremy Clarkson's tv program. I myself regard him as a teenage boy in an older man's body and admire him for his refusal to grow up. I would love to read his book. He has become a bigger than life character by just being himself. lolol. Looking forward to your review!

Yeah, I like reading his chronicles collected in books. He has a talant for writing and quite often has he a good point and is also funny. :)
