Following his hugely popular account of the previous 2000 years, John O'Farrell now comes bang up to date with a hilarious modern history asking 'How the hell did we end up here?'
An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain informs, elucidates and laughs at all the bizarre events, ridiculous characters and stupid decisions that have shaped Britain's story since 1945; leaving the Twenty-First Century reader feeling fantastically smug for having the benefit of hindsight.
Not as funny as his other books
I've enjoyed all his other books hugely but not this one. He allows his left wing opinions to become hectoring and tedious, and the book simply doesn't have enough good jokes to restore the balance. Most of his other books (even the non-fiction ones) can be enjoyed by anyone with a sense of humour - even Tories as long as they can poke fun at themselves. But this one is for staunch lefties only.
