Book Review: Bonkers by Jennifer Saunders
Bonkers by Jennifer Saunders
After reading Jennifer Saunders memoir, Bonkers: My Life in Laughs, this is a celebrity I would definitely like to meet in real life. She’s extremely funny (no surprise there) but she’s also refreshingly down to earth and very humble about her extraordinary success, a family-orientated person, someone who enjoys a drink and giggle – definitely someone to invite to a dinner party. Bonkers is a delight to read. It is written in bite-sized pieces, and tends to jump from subject to subject, so it is not one of those boring reads where the writer thought you would need to know everything about them from birth to current day. It’s more a smorgasbord of experiences, peopled by many famous people such as Dawn French and Joanna Lumley, and it’s all very amusing and will make you laugh out loud in places.
I really enjoyed hearing about her work with her numerous successful shows and I thought she wrote about her breast cancer with a great deal of humour and honesty. A great read, a great gift to give – this is a book that everyone will enjoy.
