Woath it? Coase Ah am, Pet
I started out following this on Twitter where the Chery Kerl character first appeared. Her comments were hilarious during the hash tag (#) conversations on the X Factor shows as they went out live on TV. She has since gone on to become a more general social and media commentator with a sharp wit and an wonderfully understated acid putdown, so when I saw this book I just had to get it.
It doesn't disappoint and is a wonderfully wry and mischievous swipe at the modern cult of celebrity as seen through Miss Kerl's eyes. Cheryl gives her take on all aspects of modern day living and it had me in stitches. Everything from feng shui to the opera is put under her microscope, and all covered with Cheryl’s insightful grasp for the subject.
The text is written in phonetic Geordie and as such requires a bit of perseverance to get into the 'rhythm'. However once you get in tune then it flows pretty easily.
So if you're looking for something different then I can thoroughly recommend this.
Why aye, it's mint man!
