...and the audible version has the songs cut out. And the songs are important, they talk about the songs in the podcast. So, search for it for free and get a better version.

The big I Am

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Tell R.G to give his guests time to get a few words in.d

What will your next listen be?

Daft question

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ricky Gervais?

It’s his show

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

I used to like him, now he nauseates me.Self aggrandising git. How can you interview Brian Cox and spend more time talking than him.I am and have always been an atheist but I don’t go around crowbarring atheism into any conversation.Can’t believe that Robin Ince, who he must have paid big money, to be painfully humiliated appears on this,Some people obviously have no pride.His new show is on Netflix this month, wonder how much he actually wrote himself.

Too repetitive.

The problem with this is that Ricky keeps on saying the same things. He keeps returning to the fact that he`s an atheist, great so am I, but he keeps banging the point home and defending it. Then he`ll say, a point about the difference between a scientific theory, and the colloquial usage of the word theory, again. As I moved through the various chapters, I kept wondering if I`d accidently skipped back to an earlier part. And he`s actually quite irritating on this one, he just sounds wound up all the time.

Desperate

I loved Ricky Gervais until I listened to this. Guests were dull and topics repetitive

No surprise.

Riveting stories and conversations with interesting very well known and lesser known people. Great price at only a quid for hours of enjoyment and that's only 01-05... loads more.

Funny as fook.

The Noel Gallagher and David Baddiel one is really funny. Wish the chapters were labelled.

Are you interested??

Excellent podcast. Never have I heard a more insightful podcast degrade into complete and utter nonsense in such a short period of time.
As always, Ricky has no point whatsoever. So yes, I would highly recommend this audiobook...
