    PDF Ben Elton  PDF Chart Throb Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk chart ebok, throb pdf, Chart Throb MOBIAfter reading Chart Throb by Ben Elton I don't think I will ever be able to watch a reality tv series again I feel kind of dirty and want to cry It rings so true that it is almost upsettingThe story revolves around the producer of a hit reality television show similiar to Idol or X Factor The book focuses on the manipulation used to make the show such a success the scripting of events the frankensteining of interviews the general lack of conscience exhibited by the staff of the show as the exploit contestant after contestantThe manipulation of the characters was horrendous and yet I struggle to believe that it is really fiction I am kind of left with the feeling that that must be the way it is and that sickens meI am fast becoming a fan of Ben Elton his novels just seem to hang around in my mind for days and weeks He creates the most realistic visuals that I can't seem to forget and he seems to have such an understanding of the human pysche Ben Elton

    PDF Ben Elton  PDF Chart Throb Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk chart ebok, throb pdf, Chart Throb MOBIIn this parody of popular talent shows Ben Elton's writing has become way too formulaic Like most Elton novels this one starts with a dramatic flash forward in this case the tear on the cheek of one of the contestants in the final Then like in all other Elton novels we travel back in time and lots of characters are introduced Many of those are the contestants in the show and a lot of attention also goes to the jury all three of which are absolute assholes You can imagine all those people coming together at some moment thus creating a story That doesn't happen until the last chapter so saying that this book has a rather long build up is a major understatement The actual ending is the biggest most forced and terribly unlikely anticlimax that I have ever readWhat is lacking in this bok is the humour you usually expect from Elton Except for a few descriptions of some of the pathetic candidates the book is drowned in the way too se

    PDF Ben Elton  PDF Chart Throb Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk chart ebok, throb pdf, Chart Throb MOBIThis started off uite promising but got so bogged down in so many different stories and so much detail Some of it I just skipped over because it was so boring despite the fact that the subject matter interested me I would've enjoyed this about 5 years ago I thinkI did give this 2 stars but then I remembered about the Prince of Wales subplot and OH GOD that was just so bad so I'm knocking a star off Utterly unnecessary and the whole thing was so hard to believe

    PDF Ben Elton  PDF Chart Throb Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk chart ebok, throb pdf, Chart Throb MOBIWell what can I say? I'm in two minds about this book I love Ben Elton and his books are usually uick fun reads The ones I've read at list This one is a uick read too and at times it's uite fun but somehow it lacks the sparkle of say Past Mortem or Dead Famous and the likeable characters and tragicomedy of The First Casualty and Inconceivable I like the way Elton gives an inside view into editing and television making but he had already done

    PDF Ben Elton  PDF Chart Throb Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk chart ebok, throb pdf, Chart Throb MOBIAnother biting satire slash dark comedy looking at the world of faux reality celebs and pop talent TV shows very believable and biting Ben tears apart the reality TV competition process for all to see but inadvertently the story just looks like a personal attack on the UK TV show X Factor and The Osbournes As ever Elton's one dimensional characterisations pump up the satirecomedy but overall reduce the book to a stand up telling a load of sketches Still gives a lot of insi

    PDF Ben Elton  PDF Chart Throb Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk chart ebok, throb pdf, Chart Throb MOBII read this book at recommendation from my Dad and was surprised to find myself really enjoying it I loved the idea of finding out what supposedly goes on behind the scenes of talent shows and the characters were really developed and interesting I particularly enjoyed that there wasn’t a particular hero to the story and it explored each characters faults and good ualities However I found the ending very unsatisfactory as I felt it was a frustrating way to tie up the book and it left me a bit cold
