‘The funniest book of the year and possibly all time.’ *****Heat
‘This book is a genuinely hilarious read’ Shortlist
‘A rare treat… painfully funny in that inimitable Alan way.’ **** Sunday Express
‘As a parody of celebrity autobiography, it’s sound; but as a sustained piece of comic writing, it’s outstanding.’ **** Time Out
‘Brilliantly witty’ The Times
‘This should be nominated for the Booker prize…it’s a really funny book but it’s actually more than that…it blows my post-modern mind’ David Baddiel
'I, Partridge might just be the funniest book I've ever read. Proper laugh out load moment on every page.' Richard Bacon
‘This fictional memoir … could be the antidote to the celeb biographies that clog the Christmas book market. It's as acute a spoof of the publishing sub-genre as the Alan Partridge character is of a whole tranche of crassly opinionated lowbrow broadcasters…brilliantly sustained wit.’ Evening Standard
‘I, Partridge is an indispensable guide to what it’s like to be an all-round media personality in the 21st Century. In this, it compares very well with the finest in the genre.’ **** Mail on Sunday
***** The Telegraph
‘Extremely funny’ Word Magazine
‘Pure comic genius’ The Independent
‘The best book of the year… without peer… I urge people to go out and buy it.’ Danny Baker
‘An acutely observed mock-memoir, touching on the great man's highs (receiving a Burton's Gold Card) and lows (Toblerone addiction) in equally self-regarding manner.’ Independent on Sunday
‘A magnificent comedy creation’; ‘The significant celebrity book this year.’ The Guardian

It does a great job in filling in the gaps around the stories of Alan's life as we know it from the various TV and radio shows.
Even better was my second listen on audible, which is read by Alan himself the voice brings a whole new element to the story.
if you enjoy this then don;t forget to pick up Alan Partridge: Nomad to hear the next chapter in Alan's life
There are plenty of classic Partridge style comedy moments, "he was the straightest guy I ever met, last I heard he moved to Brighton and runs a club called Beef".
It loses a star because of the layout. There are at least two notes on every page, this means you have to flick to the end of the chapter/follow the link on kindle. The links are normally funny and add to the story, but it's slightly annoying to have to do this a couple of hundred times. There's also a "soundtrack" to the book. One of the notes will say "track 24" you then have to go back to the start of the book if you want to find it(it's not automatically linked on kindle) this breaks up the flow of the story.
The last few chapters aren't as funny, and the truly hilarious moments are fewer, you get the impression that they were struggling for a funny ending.
All in all an excellent book and well worth a read.
