Dozens of comments were left below the accompanying article as readers discussed whether or not they would pick up a copy.
The majority of readers said that they were not interested in reading her memoir, with username popy123 writing: “Why would I want to waste my money and buy Truss’s book?!”
Username Drumadd remarked: “She couldn’t possibly have anything to fill one page let alone a book.”
Similarly, username pinkchill66 said: “A book? Be more like a leaflet, she wasn’t in [office] long enough.”
And username Voice_of_sanity commented: “Anyone that says they will is lying. She is a footnote in history now, a pub quiz answer, albeit one that cost the country billions!”
However, a handful of readers said that they would be interested in ready Ms Truss’s book at a reduced price. Username BSA Richard said: “If I saw a copy in a charity shop for, say, 50p I might possibly read it.”
While username Tjoepstil said: “I’ll probably buy it when it is remaindered.”
