Reviews

‘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

Customer Reviews

I wet myself in a plane

Started reading this on a flight to Ibiza, very very funny, and as a Partridge fan you won't be disappointed. I like it when an almost close to realism about this character comes to life. I preferred the first series of I'm Alan Partridge to the second, which for me was to forced and almost slapstick at times. It's the subtle part of Partridge I like, and you get all that with this book. Well written and will make most men over 32 laugh out loud. Or like me make a bit of wee come out while inflight reading on the iPad. Love it.

1st Class

It's not 5 star but it's certainly competitive.

If only Alan was born a generation earlier

First class and inspirational read, covering the dazzling heights and Toblerone fuelled lows of a British Icon

Bouncing Back was good, but this is better- it's left me believing that if Alan was born a generation earlier the world would have been his oyster- interview journalism to game show host, he'd have been better than Monkhouse and Forsyth and the world would be a better place from it.
