Review: The EFG Bumper Book of QI Annuals by John Lloyd

The EFG Bumper Book of QI Annuals

by John Lloyd

Three great QI Annuals in one bumper paperback edition!  The QI Annuals are the nearest thing to having the hit TV show live in your living room. Top comedians and brainiacs, from Stephen Fry and Alan Davies to their special guests have joined top cartoonists and illustrators and the estimable QI elves themselves  to cover the letters E, F and G (starting at A is so overrated).  QI cartoonists and illustrators and the estimable  fans out there.

This bumper issue from the hugely popular QI (Quite Interesting) UK TV program is absolutely jam packed full of trivia and interesting information. This combines 3 of the QI teams previously released books E, F and G – they didn’t release A, B, C or D, so don’t bother looking for them…

It has incredibly off the cuff information that you will wonder how you ever managed to cope without, such as: Ears, Eyes, Exercise, Galaxies, trivia on the name Gordon (I mean how could you live life not knowing that the Scottish dance The Gay Gordons is named after the Gordon Highlanders…), the book is laced with cartoons and illustrations, Rowan Atkinson appears throughout with about a cazibllion different facial expressions.

So if you are a fan of the TV show QI with Stephen Fry and others, then this is the perfect book for you.

Favourite Quote: Just pick a page and choose something! The whole book is entertaining.
