Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

Glitzch is pretty interesting, because the entire book rests upon a single, simple concept – the idea of predictive text wreaking havoc on the sentences that you’re trying to type into your smartphone. Here, Kellett takes a look at British history, and gives it a unique spin.

He covers everything from the Queer Vicar (Queen Victoria) and Sir Waiter Takeaway (Sir Walter Raleigh) to the National Death Device (National Health Service) and the Bikini Inversion (Viking Invasion). It’s a good laugh, and a novel way of experimenting with language, and it’s also a super quick read that you can get through in a day without a problem. I read the whole thing in one sitting on the bus to work! It’s not literature, but it is fun.
