Download and listen to it, you'll love this fascinating journey on the butterfly effect of free porn. Jon Ronson does not judge, he enquires.
The ending is beautiful and still resonates with me.

I'm an avid fan of John Safran.

I found this book ok. The story itself is incredibly interesting and I like that Safran himself is a character in this true crime tale. But I feel he needed to decide is this his story or theirs. Elements were fascinating and heartbreaking, and I certainly was caught up in the story of the victim and his killer and Mississippi life, but the book would have benefited greatly to some editing.
Saying that, Safran tackled and impressive and difficult start to book writing and I enjoyed it.

To me this is absolutely hilarious, witty, clever and seven hours of Alan.
This has the humor of Alan mixed with Steve Coogan's unfaltering and brilliant reading under the guise of Alan Partridge.
The Toblerone chapter is everything for me right now.
