Description

Notes from the Hard Shoul. has been added to your Cart. This is the third book by James May that I have read and I never get bored with him. I plan on reading all of his books!

Notes from the Hard Shoul.

Best known as one third of the Top Gear trio, James May has lived, breathed and dreamt about cars his entire life. This is the second of May's books that I've read, and I'm genuinely sorry that I'm finished with it and have to wait for another to arrive in my mailbox. He has written about them over several years in a large number of periodicals. Not everything in May's books is about cars, but that's part of what makes them so brilliant, even when he is obviously trying far too hard to make an esoteric gripe about politics fit into the motoring world. It simply doesn't matter - his spot-on criticisms, hyperboles, and satire are wonderful.

James May. It begins with the revelation that something like a rare Lamborghini has been found abandoned in a garage. Reading on, we discover that it's been there since 1980. Reading on, we discover that it's been there since 1980 lat but, remarkably, it's complete and in need of only 'gentle recommissioning', as the classics lot put it. A few months later we see a picture of the same car, gleaming like new, and bowling down a tree-lined road in the hands of a bloke who never imagined he could get his hands on such a thing. Now here's what I've never understood

This is the second of May's books that I've read, and I'm genuinely sorry that I'm finished with it and have to wait for another to arrive in my mailbox. Not everything in May's books is about cars, but that's part of what makes them so brilliant, even when he is obviously trying far too hard to make an esoteric gripe about politics fit into the motoring world. It simply doesn't matter - his spot-on criticisms, hyperboles, and satire are wonderful. His proposed solution to road rage nearly killed me I laughed so hard. Apart from being funny, May is also quite well informed, and clearly makes an honest effort at being non-ethnocentric, as is evidenced in his more serious article on American car manufacturing. This book is golden; you will love it.

James May is hilarious. His book is a fun read and a lot of what he says makes complete sense. I would recommend to any fans of Mr. May.

James May got me in HUGE trouble with my Wife.

She was trying to SLEEP, while at the same time Mr. May kept making me guffaw LOUDLY.

He's an excellent writer, but I don't think he is very considerate of people's feelings. As I am now removed to the couch for the remainder of the book, I am writing here to simply alert anyone who is planning on reading any of Mr. May's works about this inconsiderate attitude!

Harrumph!

A good lightweight read. I enjoyed it, and read it in nearly one sitting. True, it was while stuck waiting on a plane at O'Hare, but even so. James May writes very well, and his somewhat quirky approach to things appeals to me.

This is a collection of funny essays. I happen to think British humor is very funny and there is plenty of it here.

Amusing and my boyfriend says the chapters are the perfect length for when you're on the toilet :)
Not quite as good as Jeza style. Same idea as Clarkson books compilation of articles written in the past. However once you get over this is not Jeremy writing and you get into May's style, it is difficult to say who is better....sorry Jeza!
