Lled with laughter friends and occasional heartache but never miseryBONKERS is full of riotous adventures accidentally enrolling on a teacher training course with a young Dawn French bluffing her way to each BBC series shooting Lulu trading wild faxes with Joanna Lumley touring India with Ruby Wax and Goldie HawnTher. Prior to reading this I had no particular feeling about Jennifer Saunders I vaguely remembered thinking she was uite funny in French Saunders years ago but that was about itUnfortunately for Saunders her book is by turns dull annoying insipid and incoherent She has an irritatin habit of droppin the letter g and often she seems to be writin fer yer in her best pirate accent fer no particular reasonThis book also be stuffed with faxes from and to some of her famous pals and I m thinkin that s down to her bein unable to fill her word count Many o the faxes be also written in pirate She lost me entirely with a tale about bein commissioned and flown over to India by Goldie Hawn to write a screen play fer her and then subseuently bein too lazy to actually write said screen play This is followed by what else but faxes tellin Goldie the screen play is comin and beggin Goldie not to hate herJust a bit of blue sky thinking here why didn t she just write the damn thing as she agreed she would or return the deposit and apologise for wasting timeBecause the other way she comes across is as moany entitled weirdly unambitious and or less completely lacking in redeemin featuresYar mateys I be sorry I ever picked up this waste of time book and even sorrier to see the high reviews others have given it Whatever charm anyone else saw in it has utterly bypassed me

Bonkers author Jennifer Saunders

E's cancer too when she becomes 'Brave Jen' But her biggest battle is with the bane of her life the Laws of Procrastination As she admits 'There has never been a Plan Everything has been fairly random happened by accident or just fallen into place I'm off now to do some sweeping'Prepare to chuckle whoop and go BONKER. Jennifer Saunders half of the French and Saunders comedy team and creator of the Absolutely Fabulous TV series is a deeply private person with a vast English reserve Yes it s difficult to believe that the woman who spent most of her Ab Fab screen time outrageously drunk and arse over knickers is truly shy to the point she s virtually unable to discuss her personal life in an autobiography which by its very nature is a deeply personal document Her reticence and hesitation to delve too deeply into her own personal history create a bit of an odd duck of a book which while not particularly illuminating is still a fun readSaunders is willing to share safe talk show friendly anecdotes about how she met Dawn French the creation of several but not all of her comedy projects her trips abroad She s utterly unwilling to talk about her wooing of and subseuent marriage to Adrian Edmondson or to her recent three year battle with breast cancer as she s obviously comfortable with light cocktail chatter in the guise of a memoirBut that s okay As she points out after an incident in which she confronts paparazzi who invade her family s privacy deep in the rural solitude where they ve made a home Saunders never chased the spotlight or angled for red carpet appearances She merely wished to be left alone to write and act and create her much loved comedies Let s be grateful to those have given her imagination free reign for the last thirty years even if her characters are infinitely outrageous than their originator and her not tell much biography

Jennifer Saunders' comic creations have brought joy to millions From Comic Strip to Comic Relief from Bolly swilling Edina in Ab Fab to her takes on Madonna or Mamma Mia her characters are household namesBut it's Jennifer herself who has a place in all our hearts This is her funny moving and frankly bonkers memoir fi. The blurb says Bonkers My Life in Laughs by Jennifer Saunders the hilarious touching life story of the iconic comedian and national treasure Jennifer Saunders comic creations have brought joy to millions From Comic Strip to Comic Relief from Bolly swilling Edina in Ab Fab to her takes on Madonna or Mamma Mia I supposed if you work for the publishing company you aren t going to write a blurb that says anything less But for me at least the book was neither hilarious nor touching It was kind of ordinary a bit boring just an ok read I don t think Jennifer who I agree is an iconic comedian and national treasure did herself justice at all Some autobiographies are full of self praise and move from the highs of achievement to the lows of funny stories where you are supposed to feel sympathy with the author through the middle ground of solid working to get where they did Jennifer is all middle ground I feel that of her two writing partners Ruby Wax could have written a hilarious biography of Jennifer and Dawn French a touching tongue in cheek one Together with additional anecdotes by Joanna Lumley and much champagne which they all seem to like they could have come with a marvellous sitcom in book form of the wonderfully funny hard working adorable Jen 35 stars for the book 5 stars for Jennifer Saunders
