    Journalist, presenter, broadcaster, husband, father, vigorous all-rounder – Alan Partridge – a man with a fascinating past and an amazing future. Gregarious and popular, yet Alan’s never happier than when relaxing in his own five-bedroom, south-built house with three acres of land and access to a private stream. But who is this mysterious enigma? Alan Gordon Partridge is the best – and best-loved – radio presenter in the region. Born into a changing world of rationing, Teddy Boys, apes in space and the launch of ITV, Alan’s broadcasting career began as chief DJ of Radio Smile....

    Would you listen to I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan again? Why?

    Yes, until Alan gets his much deserved second series, this is the best way to enjoy more Partridge.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan?

    Learning about Alan's heroic return after his crippling addiction to Toblerones.


    Have you listened to any of Alan Partridge’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Refreshing to hear Alan's version of his life, instead of that impostor Steve Coogan's.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed so hard that the other train riders thought I was a sexual deviant.

    Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk's controversial and blazingly original debut novel, introduced a fresh and even renegade talent to American fiction, one who has retooled the classic black humor of Terry Southern and Kurt Vonnegut for the lunacy of the millennial age. In this novel, Choke, he gives listeners a vision of life and love and sex and mortality that is both chillingly brilliant and teeth-rattlingly funny.

    Pamela says: "Oh please, not another abridged!!!"

    also a fine example of why authors shouldn't read their own works. Chuck, hire a professional reader next time.
