If anyone’s looking for a funny audiobook to listen to check out Ayoade of Top by Richard Ayoade (“Moss” from “The IT Crowd”, though I am sure he’s famous for more things but that’s where I know him from). The audiobook’s read by him and is hilarious! I don’t think I have walked and laughed so much (and had to stifle myself lest people wonder what’s happening) since the days I used to walk in the park and listen to “My Dad Wrote a Porno” (podcast).
In a nutshell the audiobook (or book, if you get that) is abut Richard Ayoade analyzing a movie “View from the Top”. I haven’t seen the movie but you don’t need to, it’s less about the movie and more about how Ayoade presents it. He goes into a wide range of topics tangential to the movie, and is a blast! I am glad I listened to the audiobook as I think just listening to him read it was a treat in itself which I’d have missed if I read the book. (I have however put in an order for the book just so I have it).
Now I am listening to Richard Ayoade’s previous work The Grip of Film. (Update: didn’t like this one much, left it after the first movie review).
