Disappointed how quick to finish and a bit random

Started a bit... Then flicked random and ended is the only way to describe. Had some Good insight but seemed a bit random and vague but then over focused kidney stones.... Glad I used my free credit and not bought,but bewildered as it ended like an elder telling a tale with a 'is that it?' After listening to his narration which was good .

Such a soothing voice

Listening to the great Richard Hammond is a great way to unwind after a stressful day. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Richard or Top Gear/ The Grand Tour.

Enjoyable, funny, insightful. wish it were longer

Richard Hammond is clever and funny, and all his books are also. he shares experiences from TG and his personal life candidly, making it impossible to not relate and laugh. just wish it went on longer, could listen to his stories for days!

Humor from Hammy

Any additional comments?

This book is filled with interesting little tales from Hammond. Each one funnier than the last. It very much helps that it it narrated by the Hamster, you get the full feel of his sarcasem and wit that may have been lost if read by someone else. A great light read/listen that is easy to pick up/put down whenever the mood strikes. Very witty, very Hammond.

Funny and entertaining

A wonderfully witty written reflection of a British TV presenter in the throws of his first midlife crisis—turning 40. For anyone who’s a fan of the old Top Gear presenters, Richard tells it like it is (or rather was) given he’s currently going through his next crisis—turning 50.

Gotta love English humor.

If you love Top Gear and like the presenters, you'll like this. As expected Richard Hammond. Nice bloke and tells a great story.

Just a few stories from the hamster himself.

It is a fun, short listen, most of which are very enjoyable, and uterrly hilarious.
certainly worth my credit. My only gripe is the editing. I'd prefer unabridged but it's still great.

Good book but shorter then the others by Richard

Would you consider the audio edition of Or Is That Just Me? to be better than the print version?

Yes, by all means because of the narration.

Would you be willing to try another book from Richard Hammond? Why or why not?

Yes i would, I like his humor and his reading.

What about Richard Hammond’s performance did you like?

Voice and the way he tells you the story first hand.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a few times.

Any additional comments?

Good book, but the other books he has is better, On the Edge and As you do.

Audio Book Defeats Paper

Richard Hammond's books are a prime example of why audio books can be better than their paper counterparts. With Hamster narrating, the listener is rewarded with the wonderful humor expressed as only the author could. His subtle inflections, British accent, and perfectly timed pauses enhance the wonderful stories shared in this short book.
