I have my signed copy of the book too, I got it for £3 on Amazon and didn't even know it was a signed copy, you can imagine how surprised I was when I received it ^^
I'm listening to the excerpts he read for the radio, and OMG his voice... his voice is so amaaaaaazingly sensual, and the tone with which he says some words that can be understood a completely different way is not helping... this guy is Evil!

With extreme difficulty!!! Erm possibly cos there was so many other people in the room maybe lol but umm when he goes "oh, you're Becky -thanks for your question" I did have a bit of an inner squee lol
Nye's/book club/Sound Bites was fun last night. Out of 15 people, just two didn't like the book. Those two losers (lol, kidding) said he just didn't hold their attention and they didn't like the writing style.
Some people loved it...a couple had never heard of FF - what cave have they been living in???
In any case, it was fun to talk about the book and the food - a couple people had the Kluski pasta and said it was excellent. We read part of the book to the waitress - the wait staff there is amazing - they're all older men and women who take great pride in their old-school Polish bar/restaurant.
Had some wine, but not much...I think that was my first sober night ever at Nye's ... lol
