Avis de l'équipe

Russell Brand is unstoppable in his best-selling and hilariously funny new release audiobook, Revolution, where he writes and narrates his way towards political change and action. In complete and unabridged audio, Brand divulges of corrupt governments, lies and slander within modern politics and calls his listeners to action. He has devised a plan for an alluring society he wants everyone to enjoy, have fun in and live life to the fullest. The characteristic humour we all know so well makes this listen entertaining as much as it is revealing. Available now from Audible.

Description

Russell Brand wants YOU to join the revolution.

We all know the system isn't working. Our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties pointlessly similar. Our culture is filled with vacuity and pap, and we are told there's nothing we can do - "it's just the way things are".

In this book, Russell Brand hilariously lacerates the straw men and paper tigers of our conformist times and presents, with the help of experts as diverse as Thomas Piketty and George Orwell, a vision for a fairer, sexier society that's fun and inclusive.

You have been lied to, told there's no alternative, no choice and that you don't deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists and BBC stalwarts.

This book makes revolution not only possible, but inevitable and fun.

Very well narrated, funny, but not mind bowling.

Brand has some good points but his views are a bit too idealistic. The book is well written and narrated. The humor keeps you hooked up.

Excelent naration by the man himself

Absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. Wide range of subjects touched upon, some more sensitive than others. Russell's humorous naration makes listening an absolute delight. He makes great points however for any of his hypothetical solutions to be seriously considered, he should use a more pragmatic approach. Maybe in the future, more "serious" thinkers will aproach more directly the subjects mentioned by Russell and taken more seriously. Looking forward to reading more of Russel's works.

Life changing

This is not a book to just read (listen to) it must be absorbed and re absorbed and then integrated into life. A must! Oh and it's bloody funny (in parts)

Utterly inspiring

Can't see the world in the same way after reading this. Stirred up a dormant desire to see a better world and points to where that can start. I've avoided books like this for fear that once the inner working of democracy are revealed I'll feel helpless. But after reading this I feel quite the opposite.

Russel's name is the only selling point

What would have made Revolution better?

The tone of the whole book seemed condescending yet simple at the same time. I'm a fan of Russel Brand and the new direction his career is taking (the Trews is my breakfast watching) and I agree with a number of his viewpoints. However this book to me felt like an overly long, rambling edition of the trews that lacked his normal energy and humor. Overall I felt it was worse written than an average episode of the Trews. The tone of the whole book felt more like a high school child's first attempt at political/philosophical writing.

Has Revolution turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I think that this book was not the best example of Russel's work. Rather than listen to this, watch all of the Trews back to back. To be honest my opinion on this book may have been higher had I not known Russel's potential. It felt like a first attempt and I'm definitely looking forward to his second

Which scene was your favorite?

It was a rambling philosophical brick wall spiced with the occasional anecdote. Nothing was really memorable aside from the time I accidentally sped up the playback (and decided it was an improvement)

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Revolution?

The entire premise of the book needs a re-working which I hope he is doing. Nothing at all stood out in this book. It was just Russel rambling about leftist politics for almost 10 hours. All of it would be equally worthy of removal.

Any additional comments?

If you have a vendetta against youtube and refuse to watch Russel's show "The Trews" yet you are still intrigued by his politics then this is for you. However it really seemed to me that a lot of this book was written before Russel learned how to arrange an argument and talk about politics from his youtube channel. My opinion may have been different were I not a long time watcher of the Trews as he does espouse some refreshing ideas. However the similarities to his show are great and the show is by far the stronger of the two and by now there is very little in this book that he has not talked about (in a better way) on the trews.

Excellent reading though.

Smart guy

Russell has come across as very intelligent and sophisticated. Sometimes I did however find myself zoning out because he was has such a vast vocabulary and I had to think about sentences he said before I could understand them.

Just Great!

A lot to think about here. And Russell does love to rush all over the place...but essentially it's about beginning the revolution with each of us - do what we can, when we can. Think!
A great voice for today.
