Description

Random House presents The Audiobook of the Year 2018, written and read by the team behind hit podcast No Such Thing as a Fish; James Harkin, Jane Hill, Dan Schreiber, Andrew Hunter Murray and Anna Ptaszynski.

Think you know what happened in 2018? Think again.

Following hot on the heels of the success of The Audiobook of the Year (or, more precisely, twelve months later), The Audiobook of the Year 2018 bravely delves behind the headlines to sniff out the best and most bizarre facts of the past 12 months.

Compiled and written by the creators of the award-winning hit comedy podcast No Such Thing As A Fish, all of whom are researchers for QI, it will establish - among other things - that:

* Britain's first robot shop assistant was sacked after a week
* Donald Trump claimed the US sells F52 planes to Norway, even though F52 planes only exist in the game Call of Duty
* During the Winter Olympics, it was so windy during the Women's Slopestyle Final that every single competitor was blown off her snowboard.
* A snail racing competition in Plymouth was postponed because the snails were too 'sluggish' to take part.

Ranging from the distinctly offbeat to the wonderfully ludicrous - from the South Africans who were rationed to just one toilet flush per day, to the Nutella riots spreading across France, via the Miami bitcoin conference that stopped accepting bitcoin - The Audiobook of the Year promises a fact for every occasion and will prove the perfect Christmas gift for all trivia buffs.
