The World According to...

Jeremy Clarkson. Love him or hate him, you can't deny he's a good writer. I recently finished reading 'The World According to' by him. It's a collection of his Sunday Times columns - although I didn't realise it at the time I bought the book in a Dublin charity shop.

While I don't always agree with his analysis of the world, he does make some valid points. But more than that, he is a compelling writer - using his skill to round off a short article by linking it back in to the whole. There's normally a sting in the tale. Or a humorous remark at the very end.

How I wish I could write like that! Let's hope that I develop my writing skills as time goes on... maybe some day this blog will be worth reading!
