Publisher's Summary

'Due to popular demand, I have decided to write and read a book. A Simples Life tells the amazing story of the Orlov family: from our courageous journey across the Kalahari Desert to the beginnings of meerkat comparing business on streets of Moscow.

'I will also tell you about my own life, including my semi-successful experience as theatre director and my nearly international famous singing career. To cherry the cake I will give you a privilege glimpse into my home and the day-to-day living of a billionaire meerkat entrepreneur.

'With this book, I am hope to inspire the next generation of young businesskats. And with royalties I am hope to re-marble roof on Orlov family mansion. Please enjoyment.'

    "Hour of fun for the price of a pint"

    Look, you know what you are going to get, a funny story read in a funny accent. Its cheap, its 'simples' and really when you think for under 3 quid you can have an hour book that will amuse you on the way to work as you listen to it in your car/ipod you really dont have an excuse not to download it.

    I love reading but never have the chance with studying for my law degree and working. I now listen to books travelling to work every day!

    "Hilarious Fun"

    I needed cheering up whilst in hospital. This did the trick. Listened to it multiple times. Shame not longer. Great for wanting some easy listening that puts a smile on your face.

    "Great stuff!"

    I could listen to Aleksandr until the meer pups arrive home every day!



    The epic story is great and with the asides about other characters very amusing. Sergei comes in for some criticism but that's only to be expected and what we want anyway. Can't get enough of the Meerkats whether it be a book, advert or outshining Coronation Street.



    This has given me the opportunity to improve my accent as I've listened to it so much I could narrate myself. One of those audio books that makes you laugh out loud and gets you funny looks when listening to it while driving.
