Absolute Pandemonium: The Autobiography
- By: Brian Blessed
- Narrated by: Brian Blessed
- Length: 13 hrs and 45 mins
A memoir from national treasure Brian Blessed. There is no one quite like Brian Blessed. He's an actor, film star, trained undertaker, unlikely diplomat, secret romantic, martial artist and mountaineer. He's also a brilliant storyteller who will - and you must brace yourself - simply leap out of the story at you. Ready? Then listen to Absolute Pandemonium and you'll be taken on a riotous journey from his childhood, growing up the son of a miner in Goldthorpe, to finding fame in Z-Cars.
A joyful, irreverent, nine hours of fun!

Sheer hilarity will ensue
What did you like most about Absolute Pandemonium: The Autobiography?
This is an excellent audiobook made even better by the author Brian Blessed reading it himself and he is gregarious and over the top as ever yet this book is chock full of great anecdotes and wry observations and also some very touching monents too
it is also very very funny so beware if driving and also he doesn't hold back on his anglo saxon either
above all it is an most excellent tale
What other book might you compare Absolute Pandemonium: The Autobiography to, and why?
The book tells you lots of his early life and career and is very interesting
What about Brian Blessed’s performance did you like?
I liked the passion he brought to each section - his love of pugilism is very enlightening too as is his deep abiding love for his wife that is so very evident throughout
Brian has packed a lot into his life and he comes across as a very gracious and grateful person indeed
The part where he speaks of his father in Hong Kong is priceless and his interaction with the Japanese prime minister is also most amusing too
Any additional comments?
just get it for yourself and laugh 13 hours away
