As a fan of the various Alan Partridge series on the BBC, I was excited to hear Coogan and Co. were writing an Alan Partridge book, and when I found out Coogan would be narrating the audiobook as Alan Partridge, I knew that would definitely be the version to get. The reading does not disappoint. Alan's deadpan buffoonish style is just as funny as ever, and I found myself laughing out loud in the car many times while listening. The writing style is fun and fresh, actively calling attention to the book-writing process, as Alan tries to meet his publisher's minimum word count. My only complaint is that book covers a lot of material from the KMKY and I'm Alan Partridge, so some of the jokes/situations are recycled. Even still the writing makes them fresh. If you haven't seen all those series as many times as I have, obviously that's not a problem. Even if you have, if you're a fan of the Partridge, it's definitely worth a listen, but you probably knew that already.
