312 Comment Dear Coca-Cola

  1. I have to admit I am pretty darn disappointed with this one great reviews on , but it just reads as a pathetic person with nothing better to do than send in letters to large corporations that read like they were written by someone with at least a couple of screws lose The fact any of the companies replied is a miracle in itself really Not worth the 4 I paid not even sure it would have been worth it as a free book too.


  2. Found this short book rather dull, even at such a short length I found it too long There may have been one or two funny moments but nothing worth remembering I even found myself rather infuriated at the authors responses to letters which seemed to be genuinely helpful Not funny at all.


  3. Dear Coca Cola by Terry Ravenscroft is a series of letters to food and drink industry companies and then the replies often there would be several letters set back and forward to the same company There were recognisable companies such as Heinz, Coca Cola, Aunt Bessie s, Tesco, Ryvita and many It is amazing how many try and buy the writer off with money vouchers etc.Intitally i found this book really interesting and humourous, it was definitely a laugh out loud kind of book But sadly, this didn t [...]


  4. Todays review comes under the comedy section, and it is on the book Dear Coca Cola by Terry Ravenscroft The purpose of this book is that Ravenscroft wrote to a series of large, well known companies such as Coca Cola and Ferrer Rocher As the author said himself, none of the letters were edited right down to the typos Terry creates an amazing fake persona for himself, often lapsing into compliments about oven chips etc I think possibly the absolute best was when he contacted HP sauce, said he enjo [...]


  5. Firstly I m not quite sure why I m left wondering how much time the author has on his hands to be able to dream up this correspondence I m also left having a lot of sympathy for the poor sods who had to handle these letters and who showed immense patience with a wind up merchant Finally, I m wondering why he felt the need to do it If I had a beef with a company I d write to them, of course I would, but to send malicious complaints and suggestions just for the fun of it seems warped to me.I bough [...]


  6. I rarely don t finish a book I start, but this was so awful I just put it down I only tried it because it was a free Kindle book There is a reason this one is free.


  7. Terry Ravenscroft is a funny writer, there is no doubt about that, and this is a funny read The premise is a simple one write an odd letter of complaint or compliment to a company about one of their products, and let the humor take its course The author is British, and the distinctly British tone of Ravenscroft s letters and the replies to them adds to the fun for me.Most of the responses the author received were variations on form letters or were written in highly restricted language, as I am s [...]


  8. This read had me laughing my way through a pretty awful train journey It was a fabulous read that could be picked up easily and a anytime even for just a short amount of reading time However it does need to come with a warning THIS IS FOR PEOPLE WITH A SENSE OF HUMOUR It is a light hearted book with the ease and sillyness which provides entertainment without the need for serious thought.


  9. I did have reservations about this book before I started and my reservations turned out to be appropriate Whilst there are some amusing complaints and replies I gave up about a third of the way through after they were getting a bit too monotonous.


  10. Kindle freebie Premise looked good, first couple of letters were funny and then not so funny Sadly, did not get past 30% or so.


  11. This book is cringingly funny Terry Ravenscroft invents at least I hope he invented them bizarre character traits for himself as he lets lose his imagination and goes after some of the UK s best known brands, in what can only be described as an assault on common sense.With a regular acknowledgement of his love of oven chips, in this collection of letters Ravenscroft sends both complaints and praise to some of the best known labels on our supermarket shelves among other thins, congratulating them [...]


  12. Terry Ravenscroft likes to write letters of complaint ansd praise to businesses about their products He is a bored retiree with a sharp sense of humour and in Dear Coca Cola he has taken on the persona of a daft fanatic complainant about a variety of well known products.In each case he takes a product in the first case Coca Cola and sends the producers a letter The letters are one of three things a query, a complaint or praise Sometimes they are silly from the beginning and others get increasing [...]


  13. Pretty funny how he would troll these companies with his crazy questions and remarks I m glad most of these companies seems to have a good sense of humor about his inquiries.


  14. This is a funny book IF you have the British droll sense of humor I laughed my way through it, albeit a bit at a time This is a fun book to read piecemeal, maybe fifteen to twenty minutes at a sitting than that and you are likely to get bored with it Read in short spates, however, it remains fresh and, in places, downright hilarious I would guess that this is aimed at older readers, as younger readers will have neither the patience to read it, nor the inclination to finish it Over all, I really [...]


  15. Putting pen to paper with hilarious results, in Dear Coca Cola Terry Ravenscroft homes in on the Food Drink industry Household names such as Heinz, Ryvita, Tesco, Cadburys and of course the Coca Cola Company are the targets for his entertaining epistles, resulting in a laugh out loud letters book with a difference And you don t want to know what he asks Jacob s Biscuits for But you will when you ve read his letters to them.You will never look at the contents of your fridge or kitchen cupboards i [...]


  16. This author started with a slightly skewed outlook on life and spent decades writing for top British sit coms He is now thoroughly warped and brilliantly funny In this book, he writes strange letters to large companies The first response is always serious and solicitous Big companies either wish to keep customers happy or their employees who answer letters are a bit dim But our Boy keeps up the correspondence as long as they answer Do they eventually grasp that he s a hoaxer or are they hiding u [...]


  17. Many readers will enjoy this, and I certainly can t complain of the price It was free That said, this litany of puerile pranks and epistolary taunts inflicted on the hapless but compulsorily polite employees of major corporations made me want to scream If you enjoy well written, clever acts of minor league subversion, if you re a fan of slapstick and can extend that appreciation to verbal taunting and derision applied to actual customer service representatives who have no choice but to take it, [...]


  18. This is a funny book and Terry Ravenscroft is a good writer As others have said this is a series of letters written to various corporations that seem designed to test how far customer service departments will go to please a customer Its pretty funny stuff I enjoyed it and found myself reading a little in small settings between other books I could never have read it all in one setting as it does tend to become repetitive.Overall I gave the book 3 stars I would have liked to give it 3 1 2 I got if [...]


  19. Dear Coca Cola was a book of letters that the author Terry Ravenscroft wrote to various companies, offering both praise and criticism Since I have worked for various manufacturing and retail companies, I thought the letters were hilarious both the letters from Terry and to Terry from the companies Some of them made me roll my eyes, and think Really but overall it was a light hearted, funny and quick read I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that has ever worked for a big corporation, [...]


  20. What was supposed to be a humorous collection of letters to major food and beverage labels turned out to be a boring, childish bunch of letters clearly written by someone who has too much free time on his hands There should be a book co authored by all the poor Customer Service reps listed in this book documenting their experiences when they read such stupid letters If the author s intent was to charm us with his wit and humour in correspondence, here s a wake up call he is no David Thorne.Don t [...]


  21. We all get irritated with products every once in a while, but how many of us would actually complain in writing to the company Well, this man did, and not just to the Coca Cola company.This is a short collection of letters written to various companies, and the responses he received Some will make you laugh, some will make you just shake your head.A bit of humor from one Englishman willing to speak his mind.


  22. Very funny letters to British consumer goods manufacturers A little adult in content in places the author presenting himself in these letters by turns as a slightly doddering fool and alternately as a randy old goat, but very funny indeed.Similar style as Letters from a Nut Not sure this is copycat or what, but I liked it as a kindle freebie.


  23. True letters and responses from consumers who are not too bright and company officials who are perplexed and frustrated this book made me giggle and smile like a school girl It was funny and a very relaxing quick read while on a long trip If you like fun stuff or are looking for a lift in your spirits or just want to know you aren t the dullest blade in the drawer I reccommend you read this book.


  24. I stumbled upon this in the free ebooks section on the Kindle store It is a series of letters that the author sent to various companies regarding comical problems that he had with their products, and the replies received from the companies public relations reps Some are hilarious, including the letters to Coca Cola after which the book is named However, it s worth noting that Ravenscroft is English, and thus I am unfamiliar with many of the products featured in the book.


  25. Just when I would decide this book was worth no better than a 3 star rating one of the far fetched letters would have me in stitches Having no familiarity with most of the British products named just the product names themselves especially in this context were often good for a laugh I will be recommending this one to my Dad who is a huge fan of Hyacinth Bucket from BBC S Keeping up Appearances I think he would enjoy this immensely


  26. Not as much fun as I expectedI began this book looking for a funny exchange of customer service issues with a variety of companies However, the exchanges were not really amusing and, in large part were antagonistic While I realize that the British context may be lost on Americans, there was little at which to laugh I did chuckle a few times, thus the generous second star.


  27. For a quick and easy humorous read, this book does the job It s fun hearing about the resonses from popular brands customer services department, and Terry Ravenscroft is pretty creative in writing the letters to them It does get a bit samey after a while, so it s perfect at the length it is If you fancy a laugh it s great.


  28. This was the funniest book I have read for a while I downloaded it free on my Kindle and was very glad I did It consisted entirely of letters written by the author to large food companies and supermarkets and their respectful and often tongue in cheek replies I will never be able to eat McCains Oven Chips again, without thinking of beef dripping


  29. Hilarious Honestly, I randomly downloaded this book to have something to read on the bus It was either this or play Candy Crush until I ran out of lives Within a few pages I was laughing so loud that the person next to me put headphones on I thoroughly enjoyed the book and definitely recommend to others for a quick read


  30. Thanks to Terry Ravenscroft for a great afternoon s entertainment and many laughs This is reminiscent of a book I read years ago, Letters from a Nut but with a distinctly British voice, which adds to the humor or, I should say, humour I heartily recommend Dear Coca Cola as a substitute for antidepressants or drugs of any kind.
