The Pointless Book by Alfie Deyes | Book Review


 The Pointless Book is the ultimate addition to his YouTube channel - a weird and funny video-diary of fun, challenges and nothingness: bake a cake in a mug; take part in a people-watching challenge; create a time capsule; diarise a week of your life, and learn to make origami. Fully illustrated and packed with a host of games, activities and pranks, Alfie invites you to join his online following as he challenges you to complete your journal of pointlessness and do virtually nothing with pride.

No. of Pages:


The book is full of random things to do from origami and passing the book to a stranger and having them draw you, to making paper aeroplanes and baking a cake in a mug, boredom won't even exist anymore with this book around. 

There are tasks such as 'Write a compliment, rip out this page, and give it to a stranger' and 'Write five things you like best about yourself and why." I think the book is really positive. I enjoyed this book but the only thing that matters if you enjoy it too. 

The pointless book doesn’t pretend to be what it isn’t. The cover isn’t flashy. It suggests tearing a page out of the brown paper wrapping of life and making a difference to your day. 

When reading it, you can literally imagine him thinking of it and hear his answers in the questions, which as a fan, I love. If you're not a fan, I'd still suggest buying this book because it's a really nice book with a good idea.
