Summary

Frank's had better days.... 

The doctor gave him the news he didn't want, and he's also discovered the worst kept secret in Liverpool: that his wife's fitness instructor is providing her services that extend beyond the gym. With time a dwindling commodity, Frank decides it's time to do something he wants to do. 

With a little encouragement from his oldest friend, Stan, the first destination for his 'bucke list' is the Isle of Man TT Races. They had been content to just spectate, but fate had other ideas.

Poor

I listened to this during the corona virus. I needed a laugh and hoped this would provide it but, sadly, it didn't. The characters were somewhat entertaining but the story was really weak. I will not be listening to the rest of the series.

A good gentle and mindly funny story.

Well worth a listen. I was given the book for Christmas, but I've never had the time to read it. So, feeling guilty, I downloaded the Audible edition to listen to in the car.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, helped on end by Chris Lines' gravelly voice. There's a gentle humour running though the story. This coupled with the descriptions of the TT races (I haven't been for many years, but this brought my own memories flooding back) made for a very enjoyable listen.

Laugh out loud!

What a fantastic book. I’m a huge TT fan and this encapsulates the whole thing, with a nice little back story. I’d love to hear of a sequel!

Really didn't like annoying voice and dragged on

Really didn't like it dragged on for to long and the narrators voice was annoying after a while

Made my boss mad...

I listen on my drive to work and the 28 miles seemed like five. When at work I said I’ll go in at the end of the chapter ..... three chapters later and I’m on the bosses bad side... yet it was well worth it! Looking forward to part 2!
