Strong tea and good books

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”


Popcorn - Ben Elton A playful satire on the Hollywood media circus that surrounds celebrity, on the violence that permeates through modern culture, and a society that often doesn't take responsibility for its actions.

Popcorn is a surprisingly enjoyable book that leaves you tantalisingly on the precipice of knowing who the characters are based on, and this is something that occurs when it first came out and is true today.

It is by no stretch of the imagination the best book in the world, nor is it one that will stretch you intellectually, or affect you emotionally. It is what it sets out to be, an interesting and entertaining look at the movie business, modern life, and celebrity in general, through the medium of fiction.
