Thank you, thank you, thank you. We’ve been a bit blown away by how nice you’ve all been about our first-ever book, which seems to be selling some copies and getting some very pleasant reviews. It’s all a bit odd really, and we can’t thank you enough.
Said book, Movie Geek, has become a film best-seller at Amazon it seems, and the firm has knocked 50% off the asking price to salute this fact. Which is very kind of them.
Thus, the book is now available, should you be vaguely tempted, at £7.99 in physical form. We have no idea when this offer will end. In truth, we didn’t even know it was going to start.
You can order it at Amazon here. Anyone tempted to leave a review? It’s hugely appreciated. Even more so if the review is nice!
You can also get it at Hive (supporting independent bookshops, but paying a bit more) here.
As for the book itself? Movie Geek – penned by Simon Brew, Ryan Lambie and Louisa Mellor, with a dab of Andrew Blair and Mike Cecchini – is published by Octopus, and is available in print and on Kindle. Our original plan was to pick some highlights from the site and pop them in there. Instead, we basically rewrote everything and put a load of new stuff in there on top. A job that was supposed to take weeks took months as a result.
What’s in it? Loads and loads of nerdy movie things, very much in the spirit of the site you read now. Here’s some official blurb…
Movie Geek is a nerdy dive into popular movies, brought to you by the award-losing Den Of Geek website, with a foreword by the UK’s foremost film critic, Mark Kermode. Discover hidden stories behind movies you love (and, er, don’t love so much), and find out just why the most dangerous place to be is in a Tom Hanks film.
