I'm a bookseller and love a good book- be it literary or trashy and eventhough I spend all day with books I love a good listen at night!
I know absolutely nothing about cricket and wouldn't have read this as a book but I adore Miles Jupp so I wanted to hear this as he is reading it himself.
It is more than just a cricket book- it is a hilarious listen as he goes through his love of the game and the journey, both actual and spiritual, he takes to what he thinks is going to be his dream job.
An absolute hoot!
This is the latest collection of stories from David Sedaris, some of which appeared on the Radio 4 series "Meet David Sedaris" and as usual they are funny, charming and sometimes moving in places.
As usual his dad doesn't come out well in this collection and his poor family! but you can tell that despite the cutting comments about them there is genuine love between them all.
Being read by the author himself is the main selling point of this- I have read some of his books but it is hearing them in his voice that makes them so much better.
If you have never read/heard any David Sedaris before jump in here and I guarantee you will download more!
A thoroughly interesting story from start to finish - read beautifully (as one would expect!) by Stephen Fry who reveals so much about his early life and experiences. I very much look forward to reading more from him.
