A cracking read - funny and informative!
on 6 November 2008
This is a must read for any fan of the show. There's so much to look at, and so many different styles and page designs that this book can be happily swallowed in one go - or just as easily be dipped in and out of as you wish.
I was a big fan of both series, so was slightly worried I would find this a hastily knocked together spin-off, but because it was actually written by Corden and Jones (who devised and wrote Gavin and Stacey) it's been lovingly written with lots of fantastic pictures and original page lay-outs. In fact, it makes a really nice accompaniment to the show as there's so much detailed (and hilarious) information about the characters and settings.
There's a lot to choose from, but I think my favourite page would have to be Smithy's relationship do's and don'ts ("It's completely natural to own up to a dozen porno videos so don't let her tell you any different") although the heartfelt (if one-sided!) correspondence between Nessa and John Prescott is a close second! This book would make a great present, but make sure you have a good look and giggle at it first.
