A joy from start to finish....

I decided to downloaded this book with no more information on it's content other than I am big fan of Vic Reeves' television work. I couldn't have been happier with this decision.

This abridged autobiography is a fascinating and hilarious account of the early life of Vic Reeves (or Jim Moir), from birth to 6th form. It's not the most accurate of accounts as Vic likes to make up more elaborate and imaginative versions of events, but this just makes it all the more enjoyable to listen to. He is an extremely engrossing and naturally funny narrator, and is clearly enjoying re-living the memories through audio book. I found myself chuckling out loud wherever I was listening to it, which can obviously be a tad embarrassing.

The only negative comment I could make is that it ends too soon! I would love there to be an unabridged version of this also read by the man himself, and for there to be more beyond his life at school.

But I can still not fault the content as it is, and can only urge anyone that is either a fan of his, or even those who are just fans of comedic autobiographies, to grab this immediately as it will not disappoint.

He wouldn't let it lie

Marvellous ramblings, my only gripe - why abridged, why not the whole? Even so, I enjoyed this very much indeed.

Not bad

Slightly disappointed, it is funny but at times is very wooden. I prefer vic when he's being silly and slapstick but generally a great insight to his life. There are funny parts but hey it is an autobiography it's not a stand up comedy show.

Me:Moir

Read well by Vic, but concerns only the early parts of his life - The nexty one should be the interesting one.

Britain's Premier Light Entertainer

I'm a long time fan anyway. I particularly liked learning that the nonsense Vic spouted during interviews was actually true.

Brilliant

Jim Moir in your headphones? Go on then. Playful stuff, brilliantly read....you will struggle not to laugh out loud at this on the train.

Very funny.

A must for Vic Reeves fans.
Exaggerated and quite possibly a lot of it made up. But still funny. Told in only the way Vic Reeves could tell a story.

enjoyed the beginning, grew weary after that.

I enjoyed the beginning, and looked forward to more of the same, but the story became less and less engaging. I persevered, listening in hope of improvement that didn't come. I recommend taking a pass on this one unless perhaps you are a fan of music groups of this time.

As one would expect Vic Jim

A great listen with an insight into a very unique and self driven man.We are lucky to have him and his contribution to comedy is massive
