    It took a long time to write and he read it several times He thinks it s pretty good.

    This book used at least 25 of the 26 available letters, I can t remember seeing a z but I could be wrong, Many of these letters were formed into words and phrases and I was able to interpret these as the writings of TV personality Louis Theroux,As the words on the page start to fill up from top left to bottom right cleverly the producers of this book have added additional pages in order to facilitate extra writing that couldn t fit on 1 single page This pattern continues for a few hundred pages at which point it stops,It s OBVIOUSLY NOT as good as the telly because you can t see or hear anyone but if you use your imagination and try to remember some of if not all the words that are written you can sort of follow along overall I would give this book 5 stars out of a possible ten,
