ePub My Favourite People 1978 to 1988 ePub

by Alan Davies

I didn't enjoy this as much as I was expecting to .. mainly because it wasn't quite my era and also because I'm female and this is written very much from a male adolescents point of view (obviously) .. hence lots of drooling over Debbie Harry and Chrissy Hynde etc etc. There are also tons of references to Arsenal football club and as a Spurs supporter I can't condone that.. a lot of his 'favourite people' are former Arsenal players. Other favourites are more diverse ranging from Margaret Thatcher to Michael Foot and Arthur Scargill!! .. though he is at pains to point out that he wasn't very politically aware when Margaret came to power and was just emulating his father's political views.
I love Alan on QI, and there is a lot of his trademark dry wit here, the book is very easy to read. The reader doesn't learn much about his personal life, and there aren't many photo's ... it really is a social commentary about the late 70's - 80's and if you happened to be 12 in 1978 (and preferably a boy), then this is the book for you.
I would have rated it higher but .. despite the drooling .. one of his 'favourite people' wasn't Kate Bush .. unforgiveable!
