I loved this audiobook. It is the most entertaining audiobook I have listen too. I will freely admit I am a massive French and Saunders and Ab Fab fan. As I was listening, I found myself smiling and even laughing. At one point the girl sitting next to me on the bus got up and sat somewhere else. Whoops!
The book is very entertaining and I liked the fact she also expressed opinions on certain subjects too. It could have been a very entertaining book of various stories but it is nice learn someones point of view too. The book covers everything from the early days to the many BBC series to Ab Fab and on to her writing Viva Forever and of course her experience with cancer. There are a lot of funny stories in the book, as you would expect but they are very well told by Jennifer Saunders. The narration was hilarious. I personally like it and regardless of opinions of Jennifer Saunders you understand how much she likes to make people laugh. I like the fact she explained her comedy process to you.
I want to point out some of the funny bits, but that would spoil it. I can't say how much I enjoyed this and I didn't want it to end. I can not express strongly enough how good this was. I recommend getting it....now. Don't think about it, get it and listen to it and get plunged into the very funny world of Jennifer Saunders.
One last thing, thanks to Claire Balding......listen and find out why!
I really liked listening to this audiobook, I am not the biggest football fan but I do like sports. As I was gearing up for the start of the football season (it's good office banter) I thought I would get in the mood by listening to Mr Warnock and his career. I enjoyed the stories and found the life intriguing. I guess times have changed and for a football manager it must be hard to have to deal with so many people to get a transfer done.
Anyway if you are a sports fan it is worth a listen.
I have always liked Harry Redknapp but knew little about him, except what is printed in the headlines of newspapers. I think in footballing terms he has done a lot and achieved some very impressive results over the years with a variety teams. The audiobook is good, he talks about all the clubs he has managed and doesn't hold back on opinions. He talks about his tax evasion court case and the England coach job, giving his side of the story. I personally, would have liked him to get the job as England manager and thought he would have been very good at it, but it wasn't to be. He talks a lot about the late, but great, Bobby Moore and this clearly says volumes of Harry's bond with him.
The narration is very good and at times I had to remind myself it wasn't Harry himself. The narration is done with a lot of passion and not just read but told to you like a conversation.
The bio is generally good. Harry has had a lot of experience in football and each club presented a new challenge. I enjoyed hearing about the clubs and the players he has worked with over the years.
On the whole, I would recommend this audiobook. I enjoyed listening to and glad I bought it.
