Review: The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Phil Lester and Dan Howell

The Amazing Book is Not on Fire - Phil Lester, Dan Howell

Quick review for a quick read. Yes, I subscribe to both Danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil (as well as their gaming channel - because Dan falling out of his chair playing FNAF still makes me laugh. I have no shame.). That's how I ended up figuring out that they released a book - but I didn't realize they had an audiobook version until browsing Audible. I had a credit, I used it on this book - I regret nothing.

This was such a fun read. I was entertained not just learning a bit from their random games (i.e. favorite emojis, 7-second challenge, A-Z lists) and experiences (the craziness of meeting One Direction included), but also just learning about the two of these guys in general. The book is structured from their high school and college experiences, to getting their own radio show, to traveling to Japan, among other major themes, but they're not afraid to go in random directions, which are so much fun to listen to. My first listen in 2016, and one of my favorite reads thus far this year.

Overall score: 4.5/5 stars.
