I listened to this book as I commuted to and from work and it was like driving about with an old friend. I no longer cared about traffic jams or slow journeys as I laughed and cried at the very honest and entertaining accounts of Michaels life. His voice is naturally soothing and his life experiences are fascinating. I feel like I met some of the fabulous stars of old Hollywood, or that I had spent some great nights in the pub with him, laughing along with his "behind the scenes" stories. When the book ended, I felt a sense of bereavement. If you read this Michael, I wouldn't mind an invitation to your next Sunday lunch party thanks.
Funny, honest, interesting and excellently read! A social documentary of our times and an honest insight into an amazing life.
A fabulous book, beautifully written and skillfully delivered by this enchanting author. The book moves very quickly and packs in lots of information. I listened to it twice and the second time, I picked up a lot of the detail I lost in the first reading. David speaks beautifully and his charm exudes throughout. A book I will surely enjoy listening to again. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book!
If you like Stephen Fry (and who doesn't) you'll like this auto-biographical account of Stephen's early years. It's an honest tale of childhood and teenage memories and Stephen talks openly about his upbringing and misconducts in a way that you don't expect to hear from such a public figure. And you can't help but respect him the more for it.
I looked forward to my commute each day simply to hear the next instalment of this clearly narrated book.
This book is also a tale of how, with enough determination, it is possible to turn your life around.
