I Partridge: We Need To Talk About This Book

i partridge

Why am I writing the review like this?

Because this is how the book starts.

That’s very meta- will you do the whole review like this?

No cos that’s not how Alan does it.

I notice you call him Alan- do you actually know him well enough to use his first name?

Ermmm next question…

Sooo what did you think of this book then?

I’m glad you asked. This book was killer- almost like that time Alan killed someone on live TV (something I’ll admit he’s a bit touchy about in this memoir). But seriously- this is the funniest book I’ve ever read. It stars Alan Partridge- the nation’s *ahem* favourite broadcaster. This book was stuffed with every kind of humour, from satire to silliness to literal toilet humour. Prepare to belly laugh your way through four hundred pages of pure comic genius- where “needless to say I had the last laugh” (not just a random quote- that came from the book- he says it *a lot*). Jam packed with clichés and awful puns, this book embodied the character we all know and love…

Wait a sec- I don’t actually know who Alan Partridge even is?!

AHA! Well then you have not lived! Be prepared, because you are about to go down a rabbit hole of TV from which you will not recover any time soon, starting with his flagship show Knowing Me Knowing You:

And don’t worry, even though that show was not picked up for a second season, you can still watch Alan’s time at North Norfolk digital on the I’m Alan Partridge and of course the full length feature film Alpha Papa. When you’re done with all that come back and read this book. You’re welcome! 😉

(Yes I have just sorted out your free time for the next year)

What do you know- I did do the whole review in Q&A form! “Back of the net!” (another Partridge gem). And of course I’m giving him a whole bunch of bananas

Rating: 5/5 bananas


So I’m not even gonna ask if you’re gonna read this- I know you will 😉 What’s the funniest book you’ve read lately? Let me know in the comments!
