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.

What did you like best about Nerd Do Well? What did you like least?

It's Simon Pegg, and I like him, but this audio book was just a bit... dull. It's basically a list of all the thing's he's done in life without much introspection. I felt I got to know Simon more from Nick Frost's autobiography 'Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies' which I highly recommend. With half of the book being a fiction story it feels like he didn't actually want to write an autobiography.

Was Nerd Do Well worth the listening time?

Sadly not
