About this deal

Matthew Holness is a superb filmmaker, so, much like his mate Richard Ayoade, I say, stick at that, and make more films instead of your terrible career as novelists. The jokes around this are funny, as he experiences zero difficulties running around with shattered bones and no skin on, but neither that nor his outraged whines about how pathetic his publishers are for trying to censor this can make up for the fact that it’s just utterly vile. The audiobook seems the ideal way to experience it, with Marenghi’s - shall we say - unique style of acting to enhance the grisly details. Reading this book turned my stomach upside down so I quickly read it again , which luckily left it the right way up, but a third or any odd amount of times would be a great discomfort.

But Matthew Holness, the man behind the mask, stayed true to billing, with a first half of excerpts from the book, and a second half taking questions from his assembled fans. Despite my fame, I knew I’d be unable to claim ancient antiquities against tax (I’ve tried several times, but no joy), meaning I’d need to make my savings elsewhere. I love the show so I was excited to read this but the jokes got old real quick, especially anything to do with Roz and how useless women are.

I couldn't get the footnotes to work on my Kindle and some of the redirects appeared to leave me in an alternate dimension, but I guess I should have expected that. The second and third segments are somewhat closer to actual stories with surreal, farcical metafictional overlays that mostly work, but I think they suffer from the overall superiority of the first bit. The mercurial horror maestro and star of Darkplace delivers a trio of blood curdling tales from his long-lost opus in this side-splittingly spot-on parody of grisly supernatural blockbusters ― Waterstones --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition. Ostensibly a connected series of 3 novellas, the first Type-Face is the best and it works on many many levels, but there are joys throughout. The humour is always grounded in the absurdity of both the story itself and egomaniacal nature of the persona writing it.

Nick slammed hard on the accelerator of his Honda Civic and sped out of both Roz’s road and her life, immediately breaking hard to negotiate a cul-de-sac, before roaring back around again, passing Roz’s house a second time and speeding off in the direction he actually needed to go in. I don't care if that's not his name here, he says buddy 100% more than a normal person and wears a lab coat—that's Dr.Unless it was that matter of ousting his wife and child from their family home via a team of bailiffs.
