Alan Partridge: Nomad


In Alan Partridge: Nomad, Alan dons his boots, windcheater and scarf and embarks on an odyssey through a place he once knew - it's called Britain - intent on completing a journey of immense personal significance. Diarising his ramble in the form of a 'journey journal', Alan details the people and places he encounters, ruminates on matters large and small and, on a final leg fraught with danger, becomes - not a man (because he was one to start off with) - but a better, more inspiring example of a man. This deeply personal book is divided into chapters and has a colour photograph on the front cover. It is deeply personal. Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and nod-inducing pieces of wisdom, Alan shines a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of himself, making this a biography that biographs the biographer while also biographing bits of Britain.

    Oh dear, I was really looking forward to this, but it was underwhelming in the extreme. The first problem was that the fundamental concept made little sense. Alan may well traverse a path trod (or rat...

    Nomad should have won a Booker PrizeEven after all these years, Alan Partridge is a comedy gift that keeps on giving. Especially, if you listen to the audio book. Its as though Alan is in the room wit...

    A merciless piss-take of every bullshit 'personal journey' every celeb ever undertook, as Alan undertakes the Footsteps Of My Father TM walk to come to terms with the memory of his late father, and de...

    It's no surprise to find that one of the nation's most underrated broadcasters has managed to produce another literary classic. When will the BBC wake up and realise what they're missing? As far as th...

    I am a huge Partridge fan and loved 'his' previous book, so knew I had to digest Nomad quickly. I am usually not a major listener of audio books as I love to read the written word, however I make exce...

    Nomad is brilliantly well-written, and I don't think there's a single sentence without a joke in it. It's brilliantly well-observed and the monstrous creation that is Alan Partridge never breaks chara...

    I listened to Nomad as an audiobook, and you probably should too. Like its predecessor I, Partridge there's just so much more to it when you can hear Partridge's voice.Nomad is brilliantly well-writte...
