I know the audiobook was on sale recently but this may be of interest to those that want to read this instead.

Description
At last, the definitive book about possibly the best cabin crew dramedy ever filmed from one of the most 'insubstantial' people of our age.

Richard Ayoade - in this foren, perhaps one of the most 'insubstantial' people of our age, takes us on a journey from Peckham to Paris by way of Nevada and other places we don't care about. It's a journey deep within, in a way that's respectful and non-invasive; a journey for which we will all pay a heavy price, even if you've waited for the smaller paperback edition.

Ayoade argues for the canonisation of this brutal masterpiece, a film that celebrates capitalism in all its victimless glory; one we might imagine Donald Trump himself half-watching on his private jet's gold-plated flat screen while his other puffy eye scans the cabin for fresh, young prey."

Same here. I loved him in IT Crowd, but in his travel show he came across as condescending and rude at times and those HSBC adverts blleeeuuurrrggghhhhhhhh, just as bad as the Barclays and Nationwide adverts.
Bought. Love the man and the subject of the book is exactly the odd thing he would dissect. Nice find.

He mentions Columbia, Guatamala, Costa Rica, Japan, Taiwan, America, Korea, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Mexico and Siberia, and only a handful of European countries

But you see that as "Pro-EU"?

Great book but would highly recommend getting the audiobook over this if you have a credit to spare

Agreed, audiobook is much better
Already got the audiobook but may as well get the Kindle book at £1.19
Never tried whispersync but could be handy.

This is a Kindle Daily Deal by the way. So will end at around midnight.

Cheers OP

But but we got our country back ... fools will believe anything these days. It was global adverts not EU adverts.

Did you miss the bit "We are not an island" and "Together [EU] we thrive"... I will not condone this and will have nothing to do with HSBC or this book.

You seem to have added "[EU]", however this doesn't exist in the advert. Sneaky!

Did you not consider a bank named "Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation " might want to promote global trade in the UK?

Perhaps you feel we should extend our departure from the EU to include the removal of all traces of the rest of the world from the UK?

Or perhaps you're seeing something that isn't there?
Has anyone who’s read this got anything to say on whether it’s better to watch the film first?

Clutching, proper clutching.

Lol. It does parody it, so may add something to watch it first.

"Will not condone it" Haha.
Yes, such an abhorrent message - thriving together!

I think I saw one of the adverts once. Thanks for setting the other posts straight.

HSBC has always played on its global position in its adverts. I liked the cultural customs ones (showing ones feet being very rude in certain Asian countries for example) back in the day.
