Format: Hardcover
I loved this book, the funniest childhood memoir I have read apart from the first Clive James and George Melly's childhood autobiography. The added bonus for me is the nostalgic references to Hinton's supermarkets, Lowcock's lemonade etc; I grew up in nearby Stockton in the seventies, the painted haversacks were a our school too - give youself a laugh and buy it.

Format: Hardcover
Me: Moir is a lively, quick-paced and amusing jaunt through the first twenty years in the life of the Author. If you appreciate Vic Reeves' unique, surreal, off-the-wall brand of humour, there is much to enjoy in this book.

Vic Reeves' family life, friendships, succession of bizarre part-time jobs, music career and precarious early relationships with the opposite sex are all revisited with a mixture of fondness and bemusement. Even those anecdotes, which are relatively mundane and everyday are recounted with such wit and necessary comic embellishment that they rarely fail to entertain.

Reeves' increasing devotion to fashion and contemporary music, ranging from obscure, early seventies rock bands through to his punk 'conversion' in 1977 form the backcloth to the second half of the book. It is quite possible that anyone who doesn't share the author's penchant for such noble pursuits may find this section of the book a tad esoteric and of less interest.

In addition, the book's subject period does not cover his first meeting with comic partner Bob Mortimer nor, indeed his decision to pursue a career as the 'North's top light entertainer'. Such matters have, no doubt, been held back for some future tome.

Nevertheless, 'Me: Moir' is a very human book, a delight to read and provides an insight into the origins and formation of a unique comic talent.

This book is genuinely laugh out loud funny,self deprecating in places and quite revealing also.It's very well written unlike a lot of comedians biographies and if you enjoy Reeves use of the English Language then you will love this.And hopefully it will be a case "you wouldn't let it lie" therefore guaranteeing a sequel.

Format: Paperback
After much discussion and thought I had decided that I no longer received enjoyment from reading as a passtime. Until I read Me:moir. It has restored my faith that there are books out there that can make me laugh out loud and allow me to read with ease. This IS a funny book - if you find this style funny. Its endearing if you are that way inclined and it leaves you checking on Amazon for the next installment if you found it interesting. I am quite well aware that this book is not for everyone so here is the rub. Open the book at random, read a paragraph or two and if you think 'Genius' purchase and peruse from page one because the whole book is like that. If, however, you find your face contorted and your brain aching so much that the only syllable it can produce is 'Eh?' then, sadly (for you but not for me) you are not unique enough to give this book an audience.

Format: Paperback
I remember seeing Vic on for the first time on TV back in the early days of Big Night Out. I thought he was fantastic. This is his early days growing up in the north. Being from nearby Hartlepool, I can relate to a lot of the minor points that he brings up about his early years growing up. The book is Vic Reeves: the way it is told is just like he is speaking his story to you. It captures his 'voice' really well.

I’ve just got around to reading this and I must say I’ve missed a treat by not reading it sooner. A hilarious comic telling of Vic Reeves early years by the man himself that actually made me laugh out loud in places. Brilliantly written by a brilliant comedian and I only have one complaint - this was published in 2006 so part two is long, long overdue!
Fantastic book, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I've always been a fan of Vic Reeves - from Big Night Out to Shooting Stars. I hadn't heard of this book but it came up in my suggestions. I would highly recommend it even if you aren't a fan of Reeves. A lovely book retailing stories of a simpler time gone by. I look forward to Volume 2..

This is a quick 'filmed' review after finishing 'Me Moir' by Vic Reeves. It was brilliant and I am going to miss dipping into it with my morning cup of tea which is where I read it each day. (In bed, not in the cup).
