Ladybird’s series of satirical books for adults is brilliant, and this is probably my favourite of the lot. For anyone who has ever suffered a mind-blowing hangover, most of this book will jog some flashbacks. It’s funny because it is hilariously accurate, for example:
“Some hangover symptoms are caused by impurities which enter the body along with the alcohol. These impurities can include methanol, acetone, acetaldehyde, esters, tannins, grab bags of Wotsits, railway-grade pasties and KFC Zinger Tower Burgers.”
A very quick read, and written in the style of the traditional Ladybird storybooks, this is a highly entertaining grown up version. I highly recommend this book for anyone in need of a good laugh, or who’s currently in the throes of a hangover and needs reassurance that they are not the only person who has felt like this.
