Autobiographies of comedians are so much better when they are read by the comedian. Great book, well written and some proper laugh out loud moments. Don't listen to when you're on a train as people might look at you funny....

Where does A Long Way Down rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

its worth listening to. the characters are all portrayed in different chapters. its a very well written book and the narrators are great. feel good, funny, sad, and generally makes you feel like your life isn't so bad after all.
i'll go and see the film now for comparison!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a really good book. Brilliant story, well read, worth buying.

About a london teenager who sees peoples death dates when she looks in their eyes. For this reason she doesnt get close to anyone, but makes friends with a boy from school, and this is their adventures getting caught up in trouble with the police and making headline news.....

The only thing that I could say was a downfall was the author must be american as americanisms were used and the narrator was using a london accent which was a bit weird. she was brilliant to listen to. some of the other characters her accents slipped a little but i'd definitley recommend this one

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book, good twists and turns and the classic story of family life with teenage children and their trials and tribulations.
It took me a while to get into the fact that each chapter was from a different persons perspective, but a great tale about love, teenage angst and being married for a LONG time. oh, and Poo :)

I've enjoyed other of Dawn French's books, and enjoy her narration. I enjoyed the interjecton of other voices for the characters in this book.
It was an easy listen, non offensive, a few good twists and an unusual tale. nothing to write home about though

Laugh out loud funny....

.... of course it is.
Michael is funny anyway, and i think him reading the book makes it. If id read it I probably wouldnt have enjoyed it as much.
As autobiography's go its a story about someones life, but Michael makes his sound far more hilarious than everyone else.
Interesting and hilarious.
Very much recommended.
