Summary

Katie Hopkins' hilarious and revealing book Rude is part memoir, part handbook for the modern woman.   

Laughing through the chapters of her life, she shares her disasters, her biggest disappointments, and the time she had to ring her super sensible boss to say she was on the front pages of the tabloids for having sex in a field. 

From being kicked out of the army for being epileptic, to firing Lord Sugar; from her first husband leaving her in the maternity ward for the big-boobed secretary, to the reality behind Celebrity Big Brother, she has plenty of surprises to share and lessons she thinks we should learn.

Katie Hopkins At Her Finest

I personally really enjoyed this book. Listening to Katie Hopkins on audio was hilarious. It had laughter, though times in her life, serious topics. An all round good read.

Excellent

I was neither friend nor foe to Katie but after reading this no holds barred, frank account of her life I’m definitely a fan. So much of what she said rang true and I enjoyed every minute of it. There are a couple of hiccups that the editing crew could do with sorting out and it is very RUDE so don’t listen to it if you are of a sensitive disposition.

Superb! Brilliant! Breath of fresh air!

Well, I have always been a fan of Katie Hopkins, I find her amazing that she can be so confident in her own self and beliefs when most people today are too content to pretend all is well, when in fact all is not well. Not even close to well! I have had Katie accompany me on my journey to and from work on a number of days now and each time it is like I’m sat listening to her chatting to me about daily life and gripes and I find myself trying to talk back and confirm things and have a proper conversation! Is that weird? Don’t really care. The point being this audio book is one of the best. You feel welcomed and honoured to have Katie invite you into her little section of the world and share stories. For that I thank you. Throughout the book Katie would remark only one thing or another and it is really brilliant that 99% of things are things I’ve said myself at one time or another. So again, thank you for validating I’m not on my own! In summary if you want a no holds barred raw truth to many situations and circumstances then look no further. If you prefer to have sugar coated half truths and lies then go pick up a book from the many leftest authors out there.

Not worth finishing...yawn!

Whether you like her or not as least she has an opinion, or so I thought! This book is just BORING, I know! Boring!!!! Katie Hopkins just whines in this book about how mean the BBC are to her for not paying her train fares or how hard done by she is. it's not really funny or insightful. Start it for the first couple of chapters maybe but then don't waste your life on it! Katie, you can do better than this!

Yes!

I’m so glad I chose to use my Audible credit on this! I will say however that I would have gladly paid extra for it, now I’ve read I & would strongly recommend EVERYONE to read / listen! Especially those who despise the mere mentor the name that is KH! I am so on the same page with so many of your opinions. Some I don’t share but not because we differ but purely because I don’t feel I have adequate knowledge to have formed an opinion. One area is painful to hear because I am a chubber. I was a chubber with all those ‘reasons’ & more! Now I’m a chubber doing something about it. Battling daily with my Mindset because being honest with yourself is far far harder than being honest with the rest of the world. I AM worth the effort, I AM worthy of my existence & I now truly believe both those statements. Thank you for some right giggles! I especially belly laughed with your opinions on Germans as I was listening while on a sunbed in warmer climes & pretty much surrounded by them!! Thank you for your honesty, bearing all & for sharing some personal stuff too. Being vulnerable & authentic but not afraid to be so! Yes!

Thoroughly enjoyed her honesty and spunk.

Katie is one brave lady who has faced death and disaster on more than one occasion. An inspiring and amusing tale of a winner. #TeamKatie

Keep an open mind

You dont have to be a huge follower of Katie to really enjoy this audiobook. It is delivered whistfully and with great humour. There were moments when I felt challenged ... moments where I disagreed ... but also many where I agreed and content was delivered in such a way that challenges one to re-assess and take action. I really didnt think I would enjoy this as much as I did, but am glad to have invested the time. Thank you for a great "read" Katie.

RUDE by Katie Hopkins

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I thought it was going to be all about Katie's politics. Of course her opinions were stated, but it was even more about Katie as a person. She shares her life experiences, sometimes humorous and sometimes quite serious. She talked about being a mother and she shared her horrendous battle with epilepsy. She talks about the costs she willingly pays for her truthfulness and her frankness. I rather like Katie.

Very happy I bought this book

This book is rude and shocking and honest and amazing and worth every penny. I do not read books intended to be uplifting and inspirational but this book was so much more than that. Regardless of the fact that I share most of her personal views, Katie Hopkins' attitude to her incredible personal challenges and life in general is exceptional and should be taught in all levels of education. The facts she reveals about the way free speech is being controlled and policed and western society is being undermined and decaying are extremely alarming. Why aren't these things in the news papers and on the television? Katie is not an extremist but the voice of reason and fast disappearing decent values. She should be government funded to oversee the reversal of the Socialist brainwashing being taught to our children and society in general, via the PC platform and others. You go girl!

Love this woman!

Even if you do not agree with her, you have to be delighted to hear how honest and open she is with everything. Truly lives her life wide open which is what all of us should aspire to do. She's a great narrator of her own story as she reads each chapter with passion and a smile in her voice even when what she is reliving is truly painful. Truly delightful to listen to.

Loved it! She speaks the truth. For those of us who are silenced by the liberal agenda, this book gives great advice.

Very Inspiring

Loved this book and the very real and raw Katie Hopkins. You don't have to agree with her politics to enjoy and mostly agree with her view on everyday life.

I can only aspire to be this RUDE

Katie Hopkins is a woman full of fire and fearlessness ! She is real, truthful and true to herself! I haven’t laughed this hard in a really long time! It was so enjoyable to listen to a story full of insight and humor that made no apologies, nor attempted to hide any skeletons. It was wonderful to listen to Katie give her opinions, of which there were many (LOL), without expectation that you would agree with everything she said. It was refreshing to listen to a woman who knows her self and is not afraid to put her true self out there for everyone to see. No hypocrites here just rude, insightful truth at every turn!
