I'm still looking forward to the book but I just hate 2nd person, it's so surreal to read. Still, poetically written I suppose, should be an interesting read at this rate.

Half of it's first person, and the second person isn't jarring with me. I'm 3/4 way through and I think Ben's done it very well - major fans will spot a few inaccuracies and facts squeezed in, but I'm finding the Richey voice convincing.

Been reading the proof but just been sent a publication copy, and was shocked to see a certain resemblance in the pic of Ben on the inside back cover - anyone else seen it?!

I'll maybe pick this up at some point when it goes down a little bit in price. Might be an interesting read to be honest.

I cannot bring myself to believe Richey would summarise a crowd merely as "forty paying punters". Therefore I'm out.

I refuse to believe that anyone I admire would use such a horrendous word as "gobshites"- count me out too.

It reads like pretty crap fanfic.

Wait, is Richy meant to be a cockney in this? Makes sense now.

"4 REAL, innit mate" I say, giving Lamaq a cheeky wink and a jovial punch on the arm.

Forty paying punters.

Chas and Dave get a hundred times that on a rainy night.

That extract is indeed a bit weird... I'm still curious though, will wait for a discount or a second hand copy.

I did say a while ago that it would be fantastic if William Shatner did the audiobook...
