Very Interesting Story - Poignant for Civvies

I found this a very poignant story. This is a highly decorated guy who is now on TV but who suffers (suffered) from severe PTSD / Depression, caused by his time in the forces.
However I found there was several times, when I could relate the feelings experienced in civilian life - the feelings not the cause.

So all in all an interesting read or listen - the narration is OK and maybe makes it more poignant, but an SF Soldier is not trained to be an Audible narrator and possibly a 3rd party would have done a better job.

Worth one months credit overall though

Great story, huge respect to the guys for a job well done. Good audible narration to a great harrowing story which made me feel very very humble

Love a highly respected Sir Bobby Robson, but sadly this book I felt was weak, shot and smacked of being hurriedly pulled together
There is so much more that this great man has done but the book seems to rush through his life
Farewell Sir Bobby

A very powerful heading, but the content of the book is average at least. Totally aimed at the US market with some average words ion advice - many of which whilst it could be argued are good, are literally no more than common sense - Not a book I would recommend

Interesting Story - Especially as a local !!

A phenomenal book, a phenomenal story and a superb reader
Passion, emotion and a superb story, this has to be one of if not the best book I have listened to on Audible
Thoroughly engrossed from the start, ultimately shows that money cant buy everything
How do I follow it ?

What did you like most about Blue: A Memoir?

The honesty and realisation of what our cops go through on our behalf

What does Charles Armstrong bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great narration - bought about some urgency where necessary

He May be a Good Explorer but he's a poor narrator

Would you try another book written by Ranulph Fiennes or narrated by Ranulph Fiennes?

Written by, I might, but if he narrates it as well, I probably would not buy it. He was a very poor narrator

What other book might you compare Fear to, and why?

None I can reference

Any additional comments?

Thats all I can say - his narration is very very poor and dull when compared to several other narrators

Great partnership & story

Interesting but far too many references to the bible amongst a learning book
Spoiled it for me
