    Description

    In Alan Partridge: Nomad, Alan dons his boots, windcheater and scarf and embarks on an odyssey through a place he once knew - it's called Britain - intent on completing a journey of immense personal significance.

    Diarising his ramble in the form of a 'journey journal', Alan details the people and places he encounters, ruminates on matters large and small and, on a final leg fraught with danger, becomes not a man (because he was one to start off with) but a better, more inspiring example of a man.

    Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and nod-inducing pieces of wisdom, Alan shines a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of himself, making this a biography that biographs the biographer while also biographing bits of Britain.

    Pointlessness is the point

    What other book might you compare Alan Partridge: Nomad to and why?

    Homer's Odyssey, if I'd read it.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The description of the plot of Alpha Papa

    Any additional comments?

    We learn some new things about the world of Alan Partridge - including one major fact that many people will be sad to hear - but overall this is a daytrip inside Alan's mind and it's fantastic for it. I'm now listening for the third time and it's been better each time, but that's what I've found with pretty much everything he's been in. There are just so many tiny details which require rewatching/listening to appreciate fully.Don't listen to those clever-clogs who spaff their "serious" opinions. If you love Partridge, you'll love this.

    What do I think of this book? Thanks for asking.

    If you could sum up Alan Partridge: Nomad in three words, what would they be?

    A great achievement, but not as great of an achievement as his autobiography.

    What other book might you compare Alan Partridge: Nomad to and why?

    Mr Partridge's autobiography, and Great New World, by Axol O'Lerpler.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The chapter in which Alan describes Alpha Papa.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I rarely sit for six hours, thank you very much. Of course, I sleep at night, so I am lying down for six hours, but that's really beside the point.

    Any additional comments?

    Is this book as good as his autobiography? No. Does the Partridge still deliver a punch? Yes.

    Alan had a lot to live up to, as his autobiography was (and still is) excellent, and I listen to it religiously (not literally--that would be ridiculous). While Nomad is entertaining, it is just not the same. If you're new to Mr Partridge, I recommend you start with his autobiography and then listen to this. You won't be disappointed (unless you are).

    Every sentence is genius

    Weird storyline but it wouldn't matter what story they choose, it's written brilliantly. Too short, could have doubled its length but writing like this must take a huge amount of effort to think up punchlines for literally every sentence. I don't know if this was released in paperback/book form but it would be useless reading it on ones own, you need to hear it read by Alan

    Vintage Partridge

    You have to admire how many ways Steve Coogan has found to bring Partridge to life. In Nomad we find Alan attempting to complete the journey that his father never could, a walk to Dungeness A through a somewhat unscenic Kent. If Kent is the Garden of England, I wouldn't want to see it's derelict allotment.

    Fair warning that the laughs thin out as the book goes on. The first third is so funny I often laughed outloud, but much like Alan, he can't quite keep the pace up all the way through.

    But make no mistake, the weakest chapter is funnier than anything else I've had read to me this year.

    Elevenes (night-time)

    Non U.K. Listeners under the age of 35 will really struggle, but if you want to find yourself speaking ala partridge it's a solid 6 and a bit hours or rip roaring fun.

    Solid Listening Gold!

    This audio book is flat out hilarious from the first until the last sentence. I have not had the pleasure of listening to Alan Partridge prior to this purchase. That oversight will now be corrected. This audio book is literally nonstop funny. I think I at a minimum chuckled after every single single sentence. I kid you not, fair review reader. if you want to laugh and have one of the best 6 hours you can have legally, get this audio book. Drop the dime, it is worth your time!

    Sublime

    So good from start to finish. I would like to just slag off Alan like he's a country B&B, but it wouldn't be as satisfying as if I was using his own wifi connection.

    David Essex put a curse on Leo Sayer........

    Partridge at his best. North Norfolk Digital's finest broadcaster is back! Hilarious. Very hard to listen to on headphones, as your uncontrollable laughter outbursts could cause embarrassment. My review even sounds Partridge like.

    encapsulation at it's A-ha highest

    couldn't have been more disappointed to hear an audiobook finish. Great work and Steve Coogan continues to keep Partridge alive
