  Stick to his main work

Simon Pegg is one of my favourite actor/comedian/writer types and would heartily recommend that anyone who hasn't seen Space, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz or even Paul should stop what they are doing and seek them out. Now. However this book while diverting enough is not in the same league and should only be read by uberfans.

  Enjoyable in small chunks

I have to confess that I've not actually finished this book yet, but I do have every intention of getting there. I found this book to be really interesting simply because it was about an ordinary life in the most part. I found myself laughing out loud at some bits, and reading certain stories aloud to my partner, but I can't keep reading it for long in one go. From the outset Simon is humble about his skills as an author, and at first I liked this, but after a while the book did feel a bit rambly, and I was eager to get further along. For the time being I've put this down as I got caught up into the next book club book, but I have every intention of returning to read the end.

  Indulgent and boring

As a big fan of spaced I was expecting to enjoy this book. In the end I just wasn't interested in what Simon life. Most of experiences just seemed quite ordinary.
I imagine he's a nice guy and I still think Spaced is awesome but I don't think this book is that great.
