I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan by Alan Partridge
Like most I was a little worried this would be a disappointment, but after friends had read it and reassured me I gave it a go; and it really is worth reading. You need to be familiar with Partridge's TV work, especially 'I'm Alan Partridge' to fully appreciate this. Some reviews have said that the inclusion of footnotes and a tracklisting are something of a black* mark against the book as they're distracting, but I think they're amusing and you don't have to read them if you disagree. Basically it's very well done, and is very funny, that's all you need to know.
*not racist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality humour, 8 Jun 2013
Although not gripping, it's steady, quality humour throughout meant I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, but I was left wanting more (which I guess is a kind of back-handed comliment). I'll definately be looking to read more Ames.
Nike Rongbuk GORE-TEX Waterproof Walking Shoes - 9 Nike
I bought these because they looked nice, and I thought I'd use them as an everyday shoe, rather than a walking shoe, which it is fine for. However, they aren't that comfortable, and the grip isn't great, so I don't find them good as an actual walking shoe.
