For the fan of Richard Ayoade

A fun little book with a fun style

I'll admit that the novel wasn't exactly what I had hoped it'd be, but in the end I enjoyed the book and can't wait to dive into some of his other books

Weird and hilarious

If you are a fan of Travel Man, Gadget Man and IT Crowd you will appreciate the odd, dry humour of this book.

Funny but not enjoyable as an audio book.

I really enjoyed the author's humor but I got tired of the premise of the book very quickly. This just doesn't provide the story experience I'm looking for in an audiobook.

Classic Ayoade Wit and Cleverness

I had enjoyed the unique experience that is the Ayoade On Top audiobook, so I figured that I'd invest in other Ayoade audiobooks to see how that goes.

This book is crazy but brilliant, and also quite funny. It's sort of biographical, but in a clearly fictional way that plays to Ayoade's particular brand of low-key humor. Plus the fiction is very aware of this being an audiobook instead of a physical book and that all connects to the humor of the work.

But it's not just silly stuff - as always, Ayoade's writing is eloquent, intelligent, and insightful and it clearly shows his love for film. This really is a passion for him and that shines through even if the prose is crafted in a way that slants towards the absurd.

Definitely a fun listening experience and a good time.

This is a must for any true cinefile

Ayoade on Ayoade is a remarkable exploration of cinema and a stirring meditation on what it is to be Ayoade. There were moments where the author made me feel that I myself was Ayoade. My life will never be the same after listening to this audio book.

The only book worth reading, or listening to.

Ayoade spoke to my soul in his still small voice, and I answered, here I am. My life has been changed forever. For some reason though, I suspect the print version is even better.

Loneliness is Individual. Horniness is Universal.

At its core this is a story about a fun, horny guy trying to get laid. Wait...no, even with the amount of Ayoade on Ayoade action that this has, its a fun, surreal look at himself, movie tropes and more.
