Michael Caine's led a rags-to-riches life and has some amusing stories to tell along the way. Unfortunately his performance on this 1992 abridged reading is almost completely flat and monotone. About the only time it perks up is when he remarks, as part of a major edit in the story, that if we want to know more about his numerous films we'll need to read the book - I could almost hear him laughing as he said it. His 2010 autobiography 'The Elephant to Hollywood' (also available here on Audible) is far more entertaining and far better value too. It covers the same ground and then some - a generous, unabridged 10 hours of the irrepressible Mr Caine rounding up his life so far.
It was such a genuine honest read
When Michael bought his Mum a house and she asked when does the rent man call
No as yet I have not
Yes and that is exactly what I did and enjoyed it very much
I would recommend this book to anyone that has lost faith in human nature. Micheal Caine is a lovely caring man and its nice to be reminded that there Are people in the world worth listening to
It was too short, but of course that was the length of the book I would imagine.
Haven't listened to any other.
I love Michael Cain but he's not a very animated reader. The material was fairly interesting, but delivery was lacking
I love Michael Caine, and in his autobiography he comes out as witty and entertaining. He has a wonderful voice and it is not at any point boring.
