A good book can be turned into a VERY good book by a VERY good narrator. This guy does the job really well.

I listened from beginning to end. Brilliant book!

  • Tuffers' Cricket Tales

A wonderful collection of hilarious cricket stories and anecdotes from the one and only 'Tuffers'. Phil Tufnell, aka 'Tuffers', is the much-loved English cricketer who has now become one of the country's favourite broadcasters. Not cast from the same mould as other players of his generation, Tufnell has become a cult figure for his unorthodox approach to the game ... and to life in general. Tuffers' Cricket Tales is a deliciously eccentric collection of the great man's favourite cricket stories that will amuse and inform.

Michael McIntyre has become Britain’s biggest comedy star. His debut stand-up DVD, Live & Laughing, was the fastest selling of all time, only to be eclipsed by his second, Hello Wembley, which sold over 1.4 million copies and was the 2009 Christmas number one. He hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up in 2009 following his record breaking 54-date Arena tour.

Having seen this guy a couple of times on the TV I was expecting a few giggles in this book. I got chortles, gaffaws and down right pant wetting moments! Some people read audiobooks very well. Some people are very funny, but it doesn't come over in this format. This book is a hilarious exeption. Michael McIntyre performs his book so well that I have to give him 5 stars. This is one of the best performances of his life - he should be very proud :)
