5.0 out of 5 stars Are you Dave Gorman? No, but I wish I was!, 16 Jun 2005
This review is from: Are You Dave Gorman? (Paperback)
Are you Dave Gorman? No, but I wish I was! June 5, 2005
The funniest book I have ever read... and I don't bestow that title lightly!
This two-man tale of namesake lunacy is guaranteed to make anyone laugh out loud. Repeatedly!
It all started with Dave Gorman betting his flatmate, Danny Wallace "That there must be loads of Dave Gormans out there", while drunk... Danny wakes up a few hours later and finds he's on a train to Scotland to meet one of them.
To cut a long story short this starts a round the world trip to meet 54 other Dave Gormans. Dave and Danny resort to desperate measures and trickery (Guess what Danny? That man over there just happens to be a Dave Gorman!) to complete the task... but do they do it? Ahh that would be telling! You've have to read this to find out.
Aside from being a story about Dave Gormen (Dave invented the plural) this is also a touching tale of friendship between the two man. But above all this a story of English eccentricity... I think that only two tea-obsessed Englishmen would do something quite this bizarre!
It is told from the point of view of both Dave and Danny... and it works very well. On one hand you have the slightly manic tone of Dave, a man on a mission, while balancing it out is the considerably more depressed tone of Danny, who can't believe what he's been sucked into... but doesn't want to loose the bet with Dave.
This book should be essential reading for everyone... even if you can't answer "Yes" to that immortal question... Are You Dave Gorman?
