Summary

When social distancing is over, can people still keep their distance?

I only do the things I like now, rather than the things I should - is that alright?

And these days, why has everyone got an opinion on everything and insist on sharing it?

Oh. Scratch that one.

From one of Britain's most-loved national treasures, comes a much-needed Bible of straight-talking honesty and sharp observational humour: following an unprecedented time of collective global insanity, Freddie is ready to impart his effortless charm, wit and wisdom on a wild array of topics.

From the significant: climate change - maybe it's our time to go? To the time-worn: what even is political correctness and has the world really gone mad? To the essential: just what do you get when you receive the coveted Toby Carvery Gold Card?

In Right, Said Fred, Freddie takes you on a whirlwind tour of his brain as he ponders more of life's most unfathomable questions.

Disappointing aimless ramble of unconnected opinions

I was expecting this to be so much more than it is. If you are a fan of Andrew Flintoff you may well enjoy this audio book.
I think it is far to expensive and has precious little content of any worth.
The price on audible at close to £30 is ludicrous!

Dull

I’ve been a big Freddie fan for many years and I downloaded this with high anticipation. Unfortunately it ended up being a huge disappointment. I did listen to it till the end however I really couldn’t wait for it to finish. The narration really didn’t engage me and it was just boring beyond description. Such a shame

Love Freddie but this didn’t do it for me

A couple of good anecdotes but sorry to say not a page turner for me. I think Freddie is excellent, love him on A League of their own and Top Gear.

Makes me laugh

Great audio found myself laughing out loud in parts where I or my partner could identify with Freddie. Easy listen light hearted and fun. Didn’t think I’d like it without Freddie narrating but the narrator sounded enough like him to make you forget it wasn’t him.

Well narrated. Def Recc if your from up north!

Great to pass the time

Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff takes on many different topics in this rambling response to the pandemic and it's limitation on what we can do, where we can go and who we can see.

It's part autobiography - mostly about his roles in Top Gear, Talk Sport and In a League of their Own. To me, however, Flintoff will always be an iconic cricketer and it was for this reason I picked up the book.

It was a great bit of escapism, with Freddie's opinions on all sorts of things put down on paper almost like a stream of consciousness, such that he does contradict himself (by his own admission) quite often. But if you're reading this you're very unlikely to be expecting the author to come up with any solutions... it's more like chatting with a mate, a beer and pub (ah... bliss!!) Only thing wrong is the ridiculous subheading for the book (I mean publisher... really?) but if you ignore this it's a great way to pass a few evenings.

listening to this made me feel depressed

my god he is a miserable man
if you don't like the BBC you will not like this book!
I enjoy watching Flintoff on league of there own
but definitely been put off from him after this moan fess

very self righteous!
