This is possibly ever so slightly funnier than the original (Very British Problems). A lot of it rings true. Once again the fact that the book originated as tweets means you can’t read too much of it at a time or the one-liners grow tiresome. A couple of my favorites were: “The feeling of dread as you approach the campsite and only then remembering that last year you said you’d never, ever do this again” and “Noticing an avalanche heading your way and hoping your umbrella’s up to the job.” I also liked the “Holiday Booze Guide” – chapters like this where Temple breaks out of the 140-character limit are almost the best. Fun illustrations, too. I won a free copy from the publisher via a Twitter giveaway (how appropriate).
