Sir Terry... What a Star!

Great to hear Terry's voice... loved the book, his subtle humour and play with words. He's a master. The only slight downside was that it was a little bit short in detail. Definitely recommend this though!

Terry to a tee <br />

Great story.
Jumped around a bit date wise. But once you got use to the style it became an apparent ramble through his life....
so far. Really good that Terry did the narration himself as gives greater authentication to his charming humour!!

Great to hear his voice again

I didn’t realise how much he had permeated my life and how nice it would be to hear his voice - the book - Is what I expected and typically candid and self deprecating - easy to listen to and movingly sincere.

A VERY INTERESTING LIFE STORY

A very good read, I enjoyed the detail and to be reminded of many of the household names I used to hear daily and have forgotten.

Yes, It's Him!

An amusing and affectionate account of Tel's life up to the end of the 20th century. An excellent audiobook that merits more than one listen.

Wogan - Playing it Safe

I have no doubt Terry was a lovely man. His obvious charm permeates the book in his genuine loving memories of his family and his soothing delivery. but I just get the feeling he isn't giving all of himself in this autobiography and unfortunately this book left me feeling blankety blank. if you are looking for the high s /lows of something like Niven's 'The Moons a Balloon' then don't bother with this. At its worst it's an Alan Partridgesque boring list of achievements - at it's best it's an homogenized Flann O'Brien. Wogan was in his element adlibbing with off the wall phrasing and with this book unfortunately it just feels like he is in an arena he is not entirely comfortable with. You get the feeling he unnecessarily cared about others opinions and because of this chooses to 'play it safe' I would love to have heard more anecdotes about his friendship with Peter Cook for instance.
