I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into when I downloaded this. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time! To fans of Monty Python, read/listen to this book, you will laugh soooo hard! So much fun, coupled with horrible language, had me nearly peeing my pants! Everytime he called someone a twaaat... Totally annihilated! Love, love, love!!!!!
"Bollocks - I Had To Look Up the Definition, Oh My!"
Again, I find that this is related to the British government, monarchy, etc. so as an American I cannot really follow except for the few prominent situations that I recognized.
If you live in the UK, or have a better grasp on the governmental system within, I am certain you would enjoy it, as long as you don't mind the considerable amount of F – bombs throughout.
The narrator has a lovely deep, deep voice and sounds more like a college professor or James Earl Jones then someone who should be reading a comedy. I love the voice and his timing, cadence and would love to listen to him at any time with different material.
Peter generously gave me many of his short stories and I am working my way through them. If these were about American politicians with Peter's sense of humor and dry observations. I KNOW I would be laughing out loud for a considerable amount of time.
Notes: strong language and a few racy comments
Thank you for reading my my review. If you found it helpful, please select yes below this review.
"He says it how it is!"
Yes. I enjoy this kind of humour and although I didn't agree with all of it, I did enjoy it.
He covered lots of topics, not focusing on one thing for an hour and a half.
Possibly. I can't imagine it as a movie. Maybe as a Seinfeld type sitcom.
I found that I affiliated with a lot of what he was saying and found those bits hilarious. Having said that some of what he said wasn't so PC and as a parent of children with disabilities who doesn't fit his preconceived mould, I did take offence. I did keep listening though as I do like his type of humour. It was short so easily allowed me to finish it in one hit which is exactly what I wanted. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
"Ranting with STYLE"
The narrator, Mr. Curmudgeon, is the PERFECT voice for this hilarious collection of rants! In true British fashion, his voice allows you to actually SEE the writers disdain for...well almost everything!
Kind of difficult to say....since pretty much everything had me laughing. The dentist trip would have to be THE funniest!
No, this is my first.
Yes. Even if it was too long for one sitting, WHO CARES?! Just push play...I DARE you to stop!
"Funny book in the style of a stand-up comedian"
Well that was quite something, wasn't it?
Angry Dave seems to have an opinion about everyone and everything - as seem to have many people I encounter. Some things I cannot relate to properly being from "the continent" but some others (like TV, postal service, much of politics) are remarkably similar where I come from. Of course taking the whole thing completely seriously is out of the question, but some points are well taken, although all in all I would have preferred the use of less 4-letter words.
The best, however, is how David T Curmudgeon delivers the whole thing. Thanks for that. It made a dreary motorway ride far more enjoyable.
"I Guess The Timing was Appropriate for the Content"
I don't really know what to say about this book. It was mild ranting about various topics such as the dentist, ebay, paypal, and other randomness. I felt like I was under the doghouse in a bewildered sort of way. I can agree that it's all bollocks.
While this short had some humorous moments, I didn't find it laugh out loud funny. There were some interesting comparisons but I don't hold the same opinions about certain things in this audiobook. I don't sell this guy short in any way though because I've listened to other work by him that was hilarious to me. Everyone finds humor in different things.
Curmudgeon had a deep, grumpy old guy voice that was actually funny. Still perplexed but anyway, this was at least interesting.
Audiobook received in exchange for an honest review.
"Angry Dave:It's all Bollocks"
I thought I'd be a fan of Angry Dave.He has a lot of the same views that I do,but will never say.I listened to this one,it just made me grumpy.A fun read for the curmudgeons out there!lol
LOVED the narrator 'David T Curmudgeon'!Great voice!
"This book is bollocks"
I don't care so much about the waste of money, I just wish I had that hour of my life back. What a f***ing waste of time.
The Victor Meldrew character in a popular sitcom in the UK was funny. He was constantly complaining and criticising but it was all witty and thus genuinely funny. This book is not.
Cut out the cursing! It's said that those who are inarticulate use swear words to fill in the gaps in their vocabulary. This book is a good example of that.
"This is not a hidden gem."
I thought, "It's All Bollocks" was the title. In reality, it's a warning about the content.
