Even if you don't like fishing, it's great!

Loved the adlibs to the text...better than the script overall. Refreshing, gentle humour and some fishing too. The only down side was the elitism of fishing and how people can be snobby and unhelpful to newbies. Put me off giving it a go.

Written before Covid, the chapter on disease transmission is extraordinarly prescient. A beautifully-narrated journey through the human body and medical science. Bit of a bummer to end with 'and then you're dead', but accurate nevertheless.

Romesh is brilliant. 12 words remaining so yeah, he is brilliant so listen to this audiobook and enjoy.

The format is too scripted for him and he loses that irrational spontaneity that makes James Acaster unique in comedy. Not many laughs.

Great story, just a bit gender-politics-wank-heavy

This book doesn't need to frame itself as an exploration of gender politics. The stories are enough. I was left with the feeling that he is a pretentious twat, who says he used to be a twat and wants to think he's changed, but hasn't, knows it and doesn't like himself much. It's like Russian dolls - snobby knobhead inside a snobby knobhead inside a snobby etc etc. Best bit was the poem reading as an Audible extra.

Fantastic show. Even though the visual jokes were, obviously, missing, you don't feel shortchanged. Karen is a legend. But, the S&M dog story was bit uncomfortable to hear and put me well off his dad. Wish it had bit him as well as jizzed all over the kitchen.

It's like a glimpse into your weird little brother's brain. You will definitely hum the Humpty song for a week after listening.
