Hope it's a better read than the last Holy Bible book. That one was awful.

I liked the proposal for this person's THB 33 1/3 (which was rejected).

Looks like the publishers think that being born in Cardiff and having a degree from Oxford means he's going to produce something better. I'm not expecting much.

...I thought it was the same book coming out. Yeah, really really took the eye off the ball on that one.

Although at least it's a different author with a better business plan than "I've written a book about the making of Pink Floyd's The Final Cut... But you can only buy it if you also buy my book on the making of The Wall!! Haha! Ahahahaha!".

It's a book so I hope it does well and hope I come across it sometime.

I personally loved the last Holy Bible book, 'Triptych'. It was hard work and super dense but well worth the effort.

The only 33 1/3 book I've read was the Guns N' Roses Use Your Illusions one and it was fucking terrible. The author clearly hated the band and the albums and was basically slagging them off for the duration of the text. No new or interesting facts about the albums at all, no insight, no anything apart from criticising the albums. And not even in a funny rant kind of way. I finished it thinking, "Why the fuck would you even think to write a book about something you clearly despise without it at least being amusing?"

Saying that, I'll no doubt read The Holy Bible one when it comes out. It can't be any worse than the GNR one...

I can see why that proposal got turned down
