whenever we talk about comedy, Bob always says, ‘Paul have you noticed how people these days want to do their routine and want to be remembered as being clever? The people of Japan believe that everyone has an ikigai - a reason for being; the thing that gets you out of bed each morning. There’s something different about reading Bob and Paul’s words on the page, hearing their voices in those words, but not being distracted by their facial expressions and gestures that sometimes, on the tv show, draw your attention from what is being said.

Great humor that you will find yourself laughing out loud to so be prepared for some funny looks on your commute. Main Hi Kahaani Hoon”, an Audible Original is a weekly storytelling show of 20 episode from Audible, written-created-performed by Major Akhill Pratap; an ex-Army Officer popularly known as The Soldier and The Storyteller.

In each episode comedians, Bob Mortimer (portly, unskilled) and Paul Whitehouse (slender, highly skilled) spend a couple of days by the river in pursuit of that week's target fish. I feel no joy thinking about a baited hook ripping into the flesh of a fish’s mouth or about a fish being pulled gasping from the water as some sort of trophy. The history surrounding how those techniques developed was interesting, and the nonsensical rivalries that existed among upholders of different methods in the Victorian era were amusing. Bob says something interesting in regard to being seriously ill, about considering the limited time we actually have on the planet and how we ought to slow down and enjoy the small moments.

The audiobook was read/performed by the two authors, and while I wasn't bothered about the fishing details I did really enjoy their easy chat and obvious friendship. This is, when it comes down to it, a companion piece for the show, which I have never seen (I rarely watched BBC when I did have a TV subscription, and you can't legally watch iPlayer in Ireland as far as I know). Swap out a starting pint of best for a pint of mild, when you can find one, and Bob’s pub drinking technique and mine are in tandem. Well worth a listen if you like the TV programme, and/or want to find out some basic starter fishing information. I listened to the audiobook which I think was a good choice, because it really does sound like Bob and Paul are just hanging out and shooting the shit.You probably don't know what it feels like to be a child prodigy or a world class violinist, but you will after reading this luminous me. This will make you want to be a fly on the wall, or in a box, (you'll get that fishing joke if you are now as well versed in fishing as I am) on one of Bob and Paul's trips. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. On the fish, the equipment, the food, and the locations, Gone Fishing is the perfect book for fans of Bob Mortimer, Paul Whitehouse and for anyone who wants to read a brilliantly written and endlessly funny joint memoir on life, friendship and joys of fishing". I don't like fishing, but I love Bob Mortimer, so when I saw this book pop up I though I'd give it a shot.
