Revue de presse

Brilliant . . . laugh-out-loud funny (Daily Telegraph)

Outrageously funny . . . will have you in stitches (Time Out)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Is It Really Too Much To Ask? is the fifth book in Jeremy Clarkson's bestselling The World According to Clarkson series.

Well, someone's got to do it: in a world which simply will not see reason, Jeremy sets off on another quest to beat a path of sense through all the silliness and idiocy.

And there's no knowign what might catch Jeremy's eye along the way. It could be:
-The merits of Stonehenge as a business model
-Why all meetings are a waste of time
-The theft of the Queen's cows
-One Norwegian man's unique approach to showing his gratitude
-Fitting a burglar alarm to a tortoise
-Or how Lou Reed was completely wrong about what makes a perfect day

Pithy and provocative, this is Clarkson at his best, taking issue with whatever nonsense gets in the way of his search for all that's worth celebrating. Why should we be forced to accept stuff that's a bit rubbish? Shouldn't things work? Why doesn't someone care? I mean, is it really too much to ask?

It's a good thing we've still got Jeremy out there, still looking, without fear or favour, for the answers.

Jeremy Clarkson becomes the hilarious voice of a nation once more in Is It Really Too Much To Ask?, Volume 5 of The World According To Clarkson, following bestselling titles The World According to Clarkson, And Another Thing, For Crying Out Loud and How Hard Can It Be?.

Praise for Clarkson:
'Brilliant... laugh-out-loud' Daily Telegraph

'Outrageously funny... will have you in stitches' Time Out

Jeremy Clarkson began his writing career on the Rotherham Advertiser. He now writes for the Sun and the Sunday Times and is the tallest person working in British television.

Misspelling words used in the description for a book about the idiocy of our population. It is the little things in life that bring so much joy, much like this book.

HASH(0x87462648) étoiles sur 5 The Man Who Punched Out Piers Morgan ! (That action is worth 5 stars by itself) 18 février 2014
Par Sam The Sham - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
What can be said about the man who punched out Piers Morgan besides A Hearty Well Done Mate!? Clarksons' personal observations of daily and the state of the rest of the world, and condense them down to book form. His writing is witty and humorous. Jeremy Clarkson is the weekend writer for the The Sunday Times when he isn't writing for the tabloid paper the Sun. He also is one of the three hosts for BBC's Top Gear (BBC America). Many of his stories are taken from those he wrote for the newspapers or experienced from Top Gear. So unless you read the British Press or watch a whole lot of "Top Gear" the stories will be fresh to you.

Clarkson is a joy to read and after commencing you just don't want to put the current book down so you can get through it to await the arrival of your next Clarkson book purchase. He's spot - right - on about the issues he chooses to write about. The book is a good read and Jeremy Clarkson deserves 5 Stars, if for no other reason that putting up with James May!

HASH(0x87462924) étoiles sur 5 Don't let Clarkson's affected buffoonery overshadow his writing 5 juin 2014
Par The Big F - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
People have a lot to say about Jeremy Clarkson. Lefties hate him and portray him as a non-PC loudmouth. And that's exactly why many people like him. His opinions are invariably over the top but have enough reality in their wake to resemble the truth -- or 'a' truth. What is often overlooked is that he is a wonderfully funny writer.
"The new C5 sits among other four-door saloons -- from BMW, Audi, Ford, Honda, etc. -- looking much like Angelina Jolie would while sitting in a Wakefield bus queue."
He is what he is. I wouldn't go near a car he was trying to sell me, but I'll take his books any day.

HASH(0x8746281c) étoiles sur 5 If you appreciate Clarkson's view on cars on Top Gear Read this. 22 mars 2014

If you've watched Top Gear on BBC and enjoyed Clarkson's brand of wit and snark then this book is for you. He takes no prisoners and everything from environmentalism to the differences between his youth and the youth of his children and everything in between gets a finger jammed at it.

this book will leave you shaking your head one minute and roaring with laughter the next a MUST read for any Clarkson fan.
HASH(0x87462e64) étoiles sur 5 He's done much better 11 avril 2014
Par Hatbox Dragon - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Another collection of Jeremy Clarkson's weekly newspaper column for the UK's Sunday Times, dating from April 2010 to March 2013.

Clarkson has become a better writer over the years, his columns having a lot less of the high school essay, construct-by-numbers feel than they once did. As you would expect, there are some interesting insights, some really funny moments and plenty of stirring as he wanders through life in Britain and his travel experiences abroad.

On the whole, though, I didn't enjoy this book the way I have his others, hence the 3-star rating. The minor problems were laughably poor chains of reasoning (not previously much of a problem from Clarkson) and the constant abuse of Americans (typical). But the main problem was a whinging attitude that's rather hard to take from someone so rich, successful and genuinely admired by so many. You know how every pop singer has their "gee, it's so hard being rich and successful, it's so hard being me" song? Clarkson's reached that stage. He feels mightily put-upon that he can't do whatever he likes, whenever he likes, and sees any restriction on him as a personal affront. He complains about the abuse and perceived intrusion suffered by public figures, including himself, and seems genuinely to believe that the rich are a different, more noble species, who should never have to suffer an unkind word or anything that inconveniences them in any way.

Clarkson could easily say that this is all a pose for his column that shouldn't be taken seriously, thereby excusing himself from the all-too-easy accusations of hypocrisy and insensitivity, but what else can the reader go on? This attitude doesn't dominate the book by any means, but it really grated on me and dampened my enjoyment overall.

So I can only give this book a lukewarm recommend, and hope Clarkson's future books are more enjoyable. Read some of his earlier books for examples of how good he can be.
