A big fish in a little pond....., 6 Oct. 2011
Superlatives to describe this book are going through my head like a pair of trainers in a washing machine ....it's just pure comedy genius.
I genuinely feel loss for people who don't get Partridge.....this is, page for page, a leviathan of writing as self aggrandising as the man himself.
My admiration for this book cannot be contained in a mere review....from Alan's abusive childhood (not really) and military service (Boy scouts), to his meteoric rise (and fall) as the `king of chat'(again, not really), my mind is a-quiver with glorious tale telling moments spinning round my head like a pair of trainers in a washing machine....
You just have to read this, then tell everyone else....It will enhance your life joy by about 23%.
I love Alan and I adore this book......better than the TV Alan? Yep...and that really is saying something.
Kiss my face Mr Partridge...kiss my face.....
