Charlie Brooker - Dawn Of The Dumb
Two and a half stars. Almost okay, but too flawed to make the grade.
The two-and-a-half star rating deserves some explanation: I think Charlie Brooker is great, and many of the pieces in Dawn Of The Dumb (a collection of his TV criticism and columns for The Guardian from 2004-2007) and hysterically funny, but at book length, his vitriolic style becomes grating. If you enjoy cutting put-downs and cynical rants, you're in the right place--just take it in small doses.
