Read full description of the books:
Working in a hospital means the staff room is full of old Heat, Now and OK magazines... mags I'd rather poke my own eyeballs out with than read! So I was horrified to find I'd forgotten my book and faced 30 minutes of Jordan & Peter or Kerry Katona's thin/Kerry Katona's fat stories. I went to the newsagent on site and it was slim pickings. Michael Jackson has just died, so it was pretty much wall to (off the) wall Michael Biographys, with that rubbish book Twilight which subsequently became a rubbish film and this "Look Who It Is! My Story by Alan Carr" thrown in for good measure.
Now I'm 33 and while I think my life has been utterly engaging and facinating, I imagine to everyone else it's only been mildly or moderately interesting. I wouldn't write a book of my life, so why do 'celebs' feel the need to put pen to paper every 5 minutes? When I saw this, I rolled my eyes, then thought of his stand up and radio show (which I enjoy) and thought "at the very least it's got to fill 30 mins better than bloody Heat magazine"... ironically the front of the book had a quote from Heat "easily the funniest book of the year" which totally put me off wanting to buy it. But what the hell, it was part of a "buy one get one half price" offer.
I was really surprised to find I really enjoyed this book. He's become a bit of a camp icon, but doesn't bang on about being gay in this book, in fact reading about his own revealation that he was gay was very touching and amusing. Unlike most Comedians, it wasn't a 'woe is me', 'tears of a clown' type biography. He's very upbeat about everything, even the most bazaar situations have resulted in fabulous material. He charts his 'rise' in the world of comedy with hilarious anecdotes about his private life and career that make no attempt to hide his anxiety and fear and have you appreciating how cut throat it is to succeed as a comic. He works hard, faces rejection and takes financial gambles. Alan Carr is such a natural story teller, he comes across as a genuinely nice guy and you're soon cheering him on to succeed, even though you already know what happens at the end.
I'd heartily recommend this to anyone who want's a light hearted heartwarming read and a bit of a giggle.
