Publisher's Summary

At last in audio - Dom Joly's no holds barred autobiography of a man with the ego of Napoleon and the talent of Darren Day with a brand new exclusive introduction. Dom Joly reveals how he murdered his Armenian nanny before his second birthday, how as a student he inadvertently gave Kurt Cobain the inspiration for 'Smells like Teen Spirit', how as a producer for ITN he mistook John Major for a large lizard, and how after being raped by a TV weathergirl the scandal was hushed up and Trigger Happy TV was born.

Dom Joly promises many other sensational revelations involving fellow celebrities including Vanessa Feltz, Peter Mandelson and Uday Hussein and many others yet to be identified.

Critic Reviews

"Joly serves up a narrative of the bizarre and improbably... Brutal electrocution of a nanny, a fling with Nigel from Turkmenistan and a stint at MI6 rouse laughs aplenty." ( The Observer)
"If you thought Trigger Happy TV was well-observed, you’ll discover it merely scratched the surface." ( Heat)
"The bastard offspring of Spike Miligan and Baron Munchhausen, it is deeply strange and very funny." ( Sunday Times)

Hmmm Disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

As an autobiography, it is hard to tell what is wild fiction from the fact. There are bits that are laugh-out-loud funny, but I felt it turned vexing and turned readers off the main character by the end.

What could Dom Joly have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It felt rushed at the end, it skipped large sections of time, brushed over developments so you started to feel disconnected from the subject. Felt quite 'quick quick, high and mighty' in the end which, if it were meant to in an amusing way, failed to set the scene enough to let the readers in on joke. Instead, alienated and quiet turned me off wanting to support any further work.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Dom Joly?

I was excited to see so many audio books available but after listening to this one, my opinion so lowered, no, I will no pay to listen to another and dont think I will look at his work in the same light again.

No, Dom.

Thoroughly enjoyed both of Joly's travel books and assumed his autobiography would be a companion for them. Too clever and sweary by half. Shame, should be an interesting story.

I wanted it to be true

Would you listen to Look at ME, Look at ME! again? Why?

Dom Joly's fake autobiography is full of far too credible tall tales that had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. I think where he really nailed it though is by mixing in just enough reality with fantasy such that it's impossible for me to tell where the truth ends. I have to admit, when I started listening, I didn't know it was fiction. I hope more of it is true than I believe.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Look at ME, Look at ME!?

Dom Joly: anarchist, spy, journalist and fool. Every twist is unexpected and amusing.

What does Dom Joly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Dom's accents would doubtless not be attempted by a professional actor.

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

This book definitely made me laugh.

Any additional comments?

Perhaps not quite as good as his travel books, but excellent in its own right.

Glad I stuck with it

I wasn't sure what to expect and nearly gave up after the first chapter. Glad I stuck with it though. Listening to it read by the man himself, I'm sure, added to it. He is so convincing - a lot of it must be based on things he's seen and heard, even if they didn't happen to him. A lot of stuff about human nature which is what makes it really interesting, funny and sad at times.

Somewhat wonderful

Dom was always 'that guy with the phone' until I picked up The Dark Tourist (which I enjoyed). Was a bit concerned that it that was a random fluke, but no, I also loved this.
It's a somewhat novel concept for a book - an autobiography enhanced with out-rigtht whimsy and down-right untruths in an effort to enhance the readers enjoyment.
Works beautifully, and I wish a few more writers would use this to gloss over the duller parts of their lives.

Utter Crap!

think guy should stick to writing travel books(of which his travel books are quite good), this book is terrible, only listened to it all as paid for it. Can't really emphasise how crap this book is, it's not funny....you would be better finding an old phone book and making your way through it.

What a big disappointment !

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

After listening to both of Dom Joly's other books which were both excellent, I had high hopes for this one. Sadly I was very disappointed, whilst Doms narration was very good, the story I found very lack lustre. I was not gripped at all by this book. and did not find this funny at all.

Big disappointment -

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It was pathetic - not funny.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dom Joly again?

I would as I enjoyed the previous novels.

What didn’t you like about Dom Joly’s performance?

I just thought it was immature and silly. I know that is his trademark and thoroughly enjoyed previous two books but this I felt waspathetic
