Product Description

Having blasted onto the small screens with his now legendary sitcom "Spaced", Simon Pegg's rise to nation's favourite son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronnic, but mostly just plain great. This title presents a tale of this homegrown superstar and the local boy made good.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit dull 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I was looking for joke books really, I found myself reading coedians auto biographys, which seem forced for the sake of pulicity and are usually revolving aroubd privallaged childhood stories. If you want a book with a few funny bits and some well told stories of coming to fame then its cool. If you want nothing but laughs, try joke books or comedy scripts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ramble on! 16 Feb 2014
Simon Pegg - the everyman nerd it's OK to be a fan of and vicariously be able to geek out over the same things he does without fear! Rejoice then - for now he has a book out we can relate to aswell! ....Or do we...? Fun as it is reading about his brushes with mega-stardom and his expert opinions on Star Wars, through to his shrewd World views and insight into popular culture and his place within it, there is certainly a lot of random rambling going on! We get full explicit detail of every joke he made at primary School along with the emotion that accompanied it which to be honest... really isn't that fascinating. It's rather like Rimmer in Red Dwarf when he regales his stories of how he beat his colleague at Risk, detailing every single dice throw he made in order to win! And although Mr Pegg's persona comes across in his book just as he does through his characters on the screen (which is admirable and hard to do with honesty) there are bits that are so random and off the hook I had to put this down and come back to it later. Between each chapter there is even a made up fantasy story that to be honest, I don't know what it's about because it was so random I read the first one then couldn't be bothered with the rest.
Being a self admitted nerd himself really should have made him answer the questions we REALLY wanted to know as fans - what is Thandie Newton really like? Whose idea was it to put all the crafty movie references in to Paul? Would you take a part in Star Wars 7 if you had the opportunity? An enjoyable read and certainly more entertaining than a lot of autobiographies out there that are just basically a long list of everything that happened to the writer to how they got to where they are, (mentioning no names of course!) but all in all this book's trip down memory lane to amuse the author really should have been put to better use.
