Summary:

Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted onto the small screens with his now legendary sitcom Spaced, his rise to nation's favourite son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronnic, but mostly just plain great.From his childhood (and subsequently adult) obsession with Star Wars, his often passionate friendship with Nick Frost, and his forays into stand-up which began with his regular Monday morning slot in front of his 12-year-old classmates, this is a joyous tale of a homegrown superstar and a local boy made good.

    It was okay but not great. Nick Frost's book was far better in my opinion.

    I think Simon Pegg is brilliant! I probably wouldn't want to have read it as a book or listened to someone else read it, it just wouldn't be the same as listening to Simon Pegg himself. The book is a mix of stories from his own life and a made up story of his fictional self. Now, if this part of the book is to be read as a fictional story, it's not at all well written or in fact that clever. But I think of it as a look into Peggs imagination and a taste of what goes on inside his brain, which I find interesting. Overall an easy and entertaining listen.
