And that's why I've knocked a star off. Michael has "conversations* with Johnny which is very intriguing, but whose idea was the monstrous gothic typeface for the thoughts of the latter? It is difficult to read and spoils what is otherwise a great read. Nevertheless, this autobiography is well worth reading; just goes to show how you can't judge the book by it cover.....
What I didn't realize is that Michael Pennington has the issues and Johnny Vegas is a persona basically invented in Michael's head to deal with them.
An amazing, forthright and honest book. It deals with growing up in some way apart from others but still yearning for their love, affection or approval in general.
From Priesthood Seminary to packing at Argos it gives a brilliant insight into a troubled human being at odds with his life.
The only thing that spoils the book is the stupid font used for "Johnny's" dialogue. It detracts from the reading experience but does not change the fact that this is a very powerful book.
I'm sure super-fans will derive more pleasure from it, but I was still impressed with the maturity and quality of the writing. Johnny is a much more nuanced individual than he appears on television, and this book is essential reading before one can make an informed opinion about the man.

It Didn't hold me, as it jumps about too much for my liking.
A bit too much detail. An interesting but non gripping read.
