Spectacles - Sue Perkins

Sue Perkins is a UK comedian who has presented a few shows that seem to be shown on poor peoples tv here in NZ a year or two after they are made and at odd hours.  Except for Bake Off which everybody loves and knows.  Whatever I have seen in her in makes me smile.

I didn't expect to like this memoir for some reason, maybe I have been tainted by so many that are just going for the punchline lately, but I did enjoy Sues stories of growing up, the right balance of funny and family tales.  There were quite a few pages of conversational dialogue that was a bit off putting, but the book did leave me smiling. 3/5
