I admit I am completely hooked on “Sherlock” starring the fabulous Benedict Cumberbatch. This little gem of a book is strictly for fans, AKA “Cumberbitches!”
From the publisher:
*Tongue-in-cheek and totally unhelpful, this little book is the perfect stocking filler for Benedict Cumberbatch fans this Christmas.*
Benedict Cumberbatch. Does the mere sight of his name give you tingles? Do you feel a cheap thrill staring at the dip on his cupid’s bow lip as he talks? Do you secretly wish you could plumb the rhythmic depths of his voice or twiddle your finger in his perfectly coiffed hair? If the answer to these questions is yes, then I’m afraid there’s a very great chance that you could be a Cumberbitch.
But that’s actually perfect, because this little book was written especially for you! We understand that life as a Cumberbatched individual can be tricky; hours wasted watching clips on YouTube and being late to see your friends because you lost track of the time photoshopping yourself into his latest red carpet masterpiece (it happens). And we realised it was high time somebody did something about it.
Featuring a host of quizzes and (counterproductive) illustrations of the man himself, plus inspirational quotes to help you on your way, use this book to find out whether you – or a loved one – have succumbed to the Cumberbitch affliction, and then follow our simple yet semi-effective methods to get back to life BC (Before Cumberbatch).
It really is the cutest little book. I already gifted my copy to a Cumberbitch and you should too!
