Description

Random House presents The Audiobook of the Year (2018), written and read by the team behind hit podcast No Such Thing as a Fish: James Harkin, Jane Hill, Dan Schreiber, Andrew Hunter Murray and Anna Ptaszynski.

Think you know what happened in 2018? Think again.

Following hot on the heels of the success of The Audiobook of the Year (or, more precisely, 12 months later), The Audiobook of the Year (2018) bravely delves behind the headlines to sniff out the best and most bizarre facts of the past 12 months.

Compiled and written by the creators of the award-winning hit comedy podcast No Such Thing as a Fish, all of whom are researchers for QI, it will establish - among other things - that:

  • Britain’s first robot shop assistant was sacked after a week
  • Donald Trump claimed the US sells F52 planes to Norway, even though F52 planes exist only in the game Call of Duty
  • During the Winter Olympics, it was so windy during the Women's Slopestyle Final that every single competitor was blown off her snowboard. 
  • A snail racing competition in Plymouth was postponed because the snails were too 'sluggish' to take part. 

Ranging from the distinctly offbeat to the wonderfully ludicrous - from the South Africans who were rationed to just one toilet flush per day, to the Nutella riots spreading across France, via the Miami bitcoin conference that stopped accepting bitcoin - The Audiobook of the Year (2018) promises a fact for every occasion and will prove the perfect Christmas gift for all trivia buffs.

The best book to listen to over the holidays!

I love the podcast, and this book is a fantastic extension. I listened to it while walking the dog and frequently burst out laughing to the surprise of passers by. I’m going to make sure I buy a bunch of them next year for friends and family.

One of few good ways to remember 2018

All the nerdy joy of the annual compendium of facts, with so many hours of wit and silliness added that it’s like having three extra books. Perfect for driving or public transport (barring the odd bark of laughter), and the only retrospective of 2018 that I trust.

Perfect way to summarize a year

I mean, there is not much to review about this book other than to say that it was a 10 hour No Such Thing as a Fish Podcast which I can't complain about; makes a perfect way to summarize each year. The Audiobook version is 100% the only way to go for this particular book.

No such thing as a bad audiobook

Absolutely loved every moment, tried to drag it out to prevent it from ending to soon and am about to start it again.

Informative, enjoyable and funny

I enjoyed last year's "Book of the year", I enjoyed this year as well. it's like a really really long podcast, with a strange lady interspersed in random moments. I'll definitely give it a re-listen!

(could maybe use a bit more attention in the audio editing part)
