'Not since I first heard Alan Partridge have I felt so sure that I was in the presence of an immortal'

David Sexton, The Sunday Telegraph

Fresh from rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, comedian Marcus Brigstocke gives full voice to his backpacking student twit first heard in The Now Show.

Armed with only a portable tape recorder and some stout corduroy, Giles Wemmbley Hogg (two m's, two g's) bravely sets forth from his native Budleigh Salterton and offers his unique observation in these four spoof travelogues. His meanderings take him to such exotic locations as the Sudan {'... has an amazing history of armed struggle, deprivation and civil unrest... but I've come for the fishing'), Bolivia (I've discovered that pan pipes are very hard - especially when thrown at you'), the Arctic ('did you know the Inuit have over 100 different words for idiot?'), and Thailand (I'm trying to find myself but have lost my rucksack, so I'm spending most of my time looking for that').

So join Giles on his travels and meet the people he meets, hear the sounds he hears, and let him describe - in his charming and inimitable way - the sights he sees. Grotesque but love-able, he's a travelling companion to make your toes curl in their walking boots.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
