Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Thanks for telling us about the problem. No, really, by the end there are pages with more footnote than text. Most Helpful Most Recent.

Isnted I got a collections of thoughts on varius subjects like congnative biases and personal dfrren. It truly is a set of humiliating and hysterical and fascainting and impressive confessions. Derren Brown being, I think, a genuinely kind man or so a friend who’s met him less fleetingly than me assures me and intelligent and reasonably well-informed, I enjoyed reading his views. Absolute magic Ah, what can I say about Derren Brown?

Contains a few good nuggets of insight into dreren mind of Derren Brown but there are far too many digressions into seemingly pointless rambles; monster munch anyone! Indeed, his tendencies manifest themselves in his overwrought, Victorian prose, which is laden with fetishistic detail. It is a hard book to define, “memoirs” only begins to cover it, but once I stopped trying to pigeonhole it, it became a much better read for me. I found the language too verbose and old – fashioned initially but once I got into it I found, on the whole, it was very entertaining and humorous – a lot of it black.


His rococo prosification would not be unbefitting of a lawyer in a 19th century novel.

Confessions of a Conjuror By: I found that aspect to cojjuror very relatable, and I think others who identify with being socially awkward, introspecti Derren Brown is one of my favorite people, so of course I highly enjoyed this book – it is actually one of my favorites. Jan 10, Tom Williams rated it liked it. I have not, but I will soon. Several of the childhood memories do not show him in a good light at all and I will admit to cruelly sniggering at his embarrassment re Hugh Grant.

It becomes steadily more self-indulgent. This is a revealing autobiography but it is not laid out easily so some work is required from the cerren.

Loved the beginning stream of consciousness writing. Jan 13, Tony Corkery rated it it was ok.

Well, I say no shit, but he does then go on to discuss methods of bottom-wiping A quirky but brilliant, interesting guy. Worth a listen too. If nothing else, I could listen to Derren talk for hours without growing bored of his voice.

The asides are often interesting, give a good insight into Derren Brown’s apparoach to life and people, but often seem too random and haphazard. As someone who listens to audio books in order to multitask, I often found myself distracted by Derren’s poetic description and rarely finishing the second task I’d taken on.



He touches many topics: Like the films and books I enjoy it doesn’t move in a predictable straight line but uses the device of a card trick, performed in a Bristol restaurant, as the central thread from which to launch off at various tangents. Fascinating, wide-ranging and amusing commuters who suffer from embarrassing giggle-outbursts on buses and trains, beware!

While I would have liked to know much more his progressions as an illusionist, painter and collector, Brown sadly keeps these as guarded as the secrets of his trickery but nonetheless beguiles us with very telling tales of his compulsions among which is that of making lists and adding footnotes which Brown takes to a whole new level when illustrating aspects of his life.

Derren lets us inside his mind, and here he reads his own work, so it really is like he’s having an enthralling – if wacky – conversation with you. Return to Book Page. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.
