Ok i’ve learnt my lesson, this is useless as an audio book I can’t think why I imagined it would be good in audio anyway. The narrator sends you to sleep with he monotone slow reading style.
American measurements used throughout which pretty unhelpful for Audible.co.UK!
Totally unusable unless you write the whole lot down, but you can’t search for anything and have no idea which recipes are in the book.
Wasted a credit willneed to get the Kindle or paper version if it is to be of any use at all.

Dreadful

This book has apparently designed to send you to sleep! Really? Its doesn't work for me, it so boring it keeps you awake just incase you miss something interesting. I am sure it works for some but not for me, kept me awake all night for two nights.

Outstanding good book best this year so far

I love anything to do with space and Iwould have loved to meet Wally and Sue. Gripping, funny, sad, interesting, beautfully read what else can I say? I met Helen Sharman when she came to officially open my technology centre at my school when I was the head of the department, she was the most down to earth, humble and interesting person I have ever met. I’m not surprised she was upset with the way the press treated her. She deserves, like Wally much higher praise and standing in our technological society.

What would have made Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk better?

I am a fan of David but this is a terrible set of stories which are not interesting or funny in any form. The reader does not introduce any expression or life into them. What a waste of a credit Really really disappointed with this purchase.

Would you ever listen to anything by David Sedaris again?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator might help.

Excellent listen, wonderful

This is a wonderful and thoughtful book, it tells the story of the man behind the tv face of Fred. Such a talented and interesting man who truly lived in a past age where values were valued. We share a hero, Brunel and through that I felt a true connection. I will never look at a stack or church tower without thinking of this wonderful man.

I purchased this book simply because I knew a little of the history. I have worked in three Quaker businesses and for Mars. I was aware of the links between them but this wonderful book has given me more insight into this great British business. Such a shame that it is no longer British owned. A really really good listen with beautiful detail and heart warming tales of how man should care for his fellows, of how businesses should care for their staff. Simply excellent.

Well I really like Phil on TV and the radio. I decided that this would be an interesting listen, how wrong could I be? Monotonous, dull, and mind numbingly uninteresting, great for sending you to sleep, instantly! Sorry Phil this is a dreadful read or rather listen. To use your own quote 'I would rather listen to the weather forecast in Russian'.

This is a most interesting and humorous book. Rory reads his account in a very lively and engaging style, so much so that I did nothing else other than draw all day whist listening!
I learnt a great deal and recalled a lot of existing knowledge. The account of visiting a hide for the first time is so, so true.
I would beware of listening to this in public for fear of laughing out loud!
