Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Spectacles, the hilarious, creative and incredibly moving memoir from much loved comedian, writer and presenter Sue Perkins. When I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadn't kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report....

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book - it was a bit of a chance download,not being in the realms of my usual choice of listening, but I have to say how much I liked it. It is narrated by Sue herself (very well). I usually go to sleep listening to my audiobooks but I had to turn this one off to get some! She has such a great way with words and comes across as witty, clever, humble, thoughtful, honest and fallible. Only trouble is, it made me feel like I wanted her to be my friend! (oh dear that sounds sad). I don't usually write reviews, but had to say how much I loved this particular one.
