    1. Reasonable but not particularly rewarding. In places quite dull and tedious. Presumably, that was the reason many of these letters would never have made it for publication

    2. I very much enjoyed this curious book, which is, as forewarned on the dust jacket, an eclectic mixture of excellent letters which (sadly) missed the boat, the odd, and the extraordinarily peculiar. All in all, this anthology make for a very informative and educative example of both what NOT to waste time writing, and what TO write – with perfect timing. I think that I spotted two letters from a friend of mine. Should I mention that to him? Thankfully both clearly fell in a great letter wrong t [...]

    3. This book is full of unpublished letters to the editor of the Daily Telegraph, many of them very funny. My favourite was written in response to published letters concerning whether owners resembled their dogs. The correspondent wrote - "Sir - I resent being told that, as a dog owner, I look like my pets. We have a brown Labrador and Jack Russell. I do not resemble either of them. I look like an Alsatian."

    4. If you have a wet afternoon to enliven then look no further. The clever and the strange have taken up their pens and splurged their inky views throughout this book. I’d recommend reading this when you don’t know what you want to read, it covers an eclectic range of topics.

    5. An entire book with people complaing about stuff I'd made it halfway trough when I decided i'd had enough of all this negativity.

    6. A delight from start to finish. Tells you more about Telegraph readers than you could hope to know or they would wish to reveal.

    7. Hollingshead, insightful and ironic in himself, has done a marvelous job in encompassing the nation's wit and quirkiness in one book.

    8. A Christmas present from ? Light reading. As in pretty good condition, may keep as a Xmas present for someone this year!!Dipped into this and its still waiting for someone who might like it.

    9. A lot of fun. It makes you realise that there is a large section of society who are deeply, deeply weird. Especially the MI6 pretender from Brizzle.

    10. I picked this boom up as a light coffee book read while I was on a shift at work. And I must say it did the job there was some really funny bits and some downright odd.

    11. Hilarious! Alas, sometimes the very Britishness of the subjects misses the mark for those without the background.
