Zombies in North London, death cults in the West Country, the engineering deck of the Enterprise: actor, comedian, writer, and self-proclaimed supergeek Simon Pegg has been ploughing some bizarre furrows in recent times. Having blasted on to the small screen in the gut-busting and now legendary sitcom Spaced, his enduring appeal and rise to nation’s-favourite-son status has been mercurial, meteoric, megatronic, but mostly just plain great.

This is a really good listen, it's Simon Pegg comedy is obviously the driving force that sticks the back story together well, and I laughed at very regular intervals while listening. It's duel monologue was something that first caught me off guard, but does very quickly make sense and in a way works, but I think the two could ave been two separate stories expanded on, as I was really interested in his life and most of this section is kind of dotted around telling you bits here and there and can sometimes get confusing, I would have just liked more detail especially towards the end when he actually made it to being famous it felt like he was only lightly going over it, which was a shame.
The other side of the coin was a funny fantasy story and again I think in its self ould have been it's only little book.

Take nothing away form the fact this is a superlative listen! If like me you are a Simon Pegg fan I strongly recommend you take a listen.
