REVIEW: ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE, by ERIC IDLE

First book of 2020 finished.

 

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A SortabiographyAlways Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography by Eric Idle

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Entertaining but superficial glossing over of a celebrity life that eschews self-reflection and insight in favour of name dropping and shaggy dog stories. It’s fun, and occasionally funny, but if you’re of the opinion that Idle’s career has been running off nostalgia and cannibalisation of his Pythonic roots for a long while now, this will not be the book to change your mind.
