    ePUB Ben Elton · Chart Throb PDF/EPUB à · chart kindle, throb epub, 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 mo

    ePUB Ben Elton · Chart Throb PDF/EPUB à · chart kindle, throb epub, 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

    ePUB Ben Elton · Chart Throb PDF/EPUB à · chart kindle, throb epub, Chart Throb MOBII would recommend this book to any reality television fans whose illusions won't be shattered by the amount of behind the scenes manipulation in this X Factor satire If you really believe that the X Factor is a talent contest which the best singer will win you may like to skip this book especially if you see Sharon Osbourne as a lovely motherly person who hates to send any of the contestants home Although Ben Elton has made the female judge on the Chart Throb panel a transsexual ex rock star with a drug addled wife and twin step daughters who like to annoy her by calling her Dad instead of Mum Beryl's mannerisms and comments to the contestants are totally Sharon OsbourneI wouldn’t say that this is one of Ben Elton's best books as it was repetitive and the story dragged at times but I found it very funny and didn’t spot the final twist coming at all
