First thoughts

This was quite the entertaining read and very easy to get through. A wonderful amount of X-rated content fills more or less the last 50% of the book and was a good little cackle to get through. A nice bit of a merry and light content.

What’s it about

So if it wasn’t already self-evident, these are Christian Hull’s memoirs! Hull is an internet celebrity/comedian who I would say has most recently enjoyed a healthy dose of fame through Tiktok.

In these memoirs are many hilarious stories, a near-complete history of his sex life and unabashedly self-centred ramblings.

What you can expect

This was a very easy read and a good break from my regular reading for a few laughs. I’m not overly familiar with Hull, in terms of all the content covered in this book, and it does seem like a book mainly written for life-long fans, but I nonetheless found it entertaining.

I always find it oddly reassuring and humanising to hear about the struggles and tribulations of successful people, and Hull is no exception. You get a good look at the challenges he faced to get where he is today.

Hull is also gay and this features heavily in this memoir. I think one of the best things about this book is the support and solidarity Hull offers to fellow queers on the path to self-discovery.

Final thoughts

Simple but funny is how I would sum this up. There isn’t much in the way of profound life lessons in this, but it is an excellent queer read and worth a flip through for anyone who watches Hull’s stuff!
