I can't remember the last time a book made me laugh so much- really enjoyable! ( )

I'd like to advise that you don't read this book* if you have an amount of isotonic sports drink (or any other liquid, for example tea) in your mouth (a small amount or a large amount, it doesn't matter).

I had to make one correction. The first footnote on page 19 of the 2014 paperback edition should send you to page 256 in the appendix, not page 244. You're welcome.

*You should read this book. Especially if you appreciate Ayoade. If you don't appreciate him, read it anyway. Be bewildered. ( )

Richard Ayoade: Actor, Writer, Director. Father, Husband, Man. Nasal, Norwegian, Nigerian. Some Other Things, Too.

In this book, Richard Ayoade interviews himself, Richard Ayoade, about his life in the limelight, mostly concentrating on his love for film and the films he has made, namely the only two he has made, Submarine and The Double.

This is not a biography. Or an autobiography, though there are some elements of such here. It's more of an assault of autobiographies and interviews and cinema as a whole, and so many other things.

P.S. Don't buy this book on Kindle. You will regret it and want to kill yourself for not heeding my Wise Words. This book is built upon the footnote and appendix system, and you MUST flick back and forth between the three in order to fully appreciate Ayoade's might. Do. Not. Buy. On. Kindle. ( )

This book is mainly set out as a number of interviews between Ayoade and Ayoade. Yes he interviews himself, humouressley playing on the fact he is the only person who understands Ayoade's intellect. It's a very funny book, with my personal favourite part being the list of deleted scenes from the "new" Star Wars blu ray. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571316522, Paperback)

"This book contains all the hot Ayoade-on-Ayoade action any self-respecting adult could reasonably withstand". (Charlie Brooker). "Hilarious". (Caitlin Moran). "This book changed my sex." (Noel Fielding). In this book Richard Ayoade - actor, writer, director, and amateur dentist - reflects on his cinematic legacy as only he can: in conversation with himself. Over ten brilliantly insightful and often erotic interviews, Ayoade examines himself fully and without mercy, leading a breathless investigation into this once-in-a-generation visionary. Only Ayoade can appreciate Ayoade's unique methodology. Only Ayoade can recognise Ayoade's talent. Only Ayoade can withstand Ayoade's peculiar scent. Only Ayoade can truly get inside Ayoade. They have called their book Ayoade on Ayoade: A Cinematic Odyssey. Take the journey, and your life will never be the same again. Ayoade on Ayoade captures the director in his own words: pompous, vain, angry and very, very funny.
