Clayton Miller's life is a mess. His career as one of the country's best comedy script writers has stalled and his long term girlfriend has left him for his ex best friend and ex writing partner. Just when he thinks his life couldn't get any worse, he commits a spectacularly public fall from grace and with the press hounding him, his agent banishes him to the middle of nowhere until the dust has settled.

Good book bad narrater

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 20-08-10

I enjoyed this book but I found the narrater to be not too good.

She seemed to pause in the wrong part of a sentence and the voice changes were on occasion annoying, this caused some displeasure and spoiled the listening of a good story.

In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. Now, in The Audacity of Hope, he calls for a different brand of politics: a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy".

  • My Turn

Norman Wisdom's early years could easily have come straight from the pages of a Dickens novel. Left by their frightened mother and ill-treated by a brutal father, Norman and his brother were forced to fend for themselves, sleeping rough in London and stealing food to survive. This is a rags to riches tale of the man Charlie Chaplin said would take his mantle and who went on to make millions laugh around the world for over five decades.

I got this and had to listen to it in one go. It is read by Norman Wisdom and you feel as though he is sitting talking to you personally, it isn't a bit like he is reading more like he is just speaking to you and at times he gets quite emotional. I have always liked him since being a kid and watching him on films and tv. Now I just love the man for his honesty, integrity and humour. Get it you will not regret it.
