My review of the Pythons Autobiography by canaveralgumby on 23 December 2003 3:05am
 
Well, let me begin by saying that it is a very heavy book, and also quite heavy.

I found it to continue to be heavy as I proceeded through Section One, and it seemed to become even heavier as I read it in bed, leaning it upon my legs.

In summary, the book is remarkably heavy, there are not enough bits about Michael (that's not really true), and there are finally enough bits by and about Graham. But be warned: you may find it to be very heavy.

Not a book to read in the bath because it is so heavy. But good for weight lifting if you are interested in weight training. Not good to put on your head and walk around to help you walk like a model. In the end you will have a very flat head because of the heaviness of the book. Great for a paper weight!

So, honestly gals...if I don't mind heavy books, should I pick it up? ;O)

Well, yes, Mary, you may, but it is very heavy, so be careful picking it up---watch your back. Remember, to bend at the knee, not the waist!!!!

I dozed off while reading it, (not out of boredom, but out of exhaustion) and the book was resting on my arm.
When I awoke, my whole arm had fallen asleep; all numb and tingly.
It's damn heavy. But what a swell read! It is like Nirvana for the Python-head!
(taken out of context, that last sentence would seem very odd.)

Helen, did you ever hear the Lewis Black stand-up, where he said he almost went mad because someone at the next table in a restaurant spoke this sentence:

"If it weren't for my horse, I never would have finished college."

Anyway, before I even unwrapped, it, I had vowed that I would NOT, under ANY circumstances, scan or otherwise lift any images from the autobiography for the MPUAP. That is, until I saw page 130. Now what?!

Right, I'll see your 130 and raise you page 222...

P.S. you know the book is heavy when the postlady forsakes her trusty bicycle and delivers your package from UK Amazon by wheel barrow....
