Summary

Right.

Does anybody else watch Donald Trump as a guilty pleasure? When social distancing is over, can people still keep their distance? 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. Fresh from months of staying at home, Freddie is ready to impart his effortless charm and wisdom on a wild array of topics.

From the significant: climate change - maybe it's our time to go? To the vital: I'm only doing things I like doing now, not the things I should.

From time-worn questions: what even is political correctness, and has the world really gone mad? To our new reality: what are the politics of Zoom, and is it okay to keep pretending my computer has crashed?

Freddie takes you on a whirlwind tour of his brain as he ponders more of life's most unfathomable questions. Like, just what do you get when you receive the coveted Toby Carvery Gold Card?

Right, Said Fred is exactly the tonic you need after experiencing all of the highs and many, many lows of one helluva year.

Easy to listen to during COVID isolation...

A relatable, if nothing groundbreaking easy listen whilst recovering from some mild COVID symptoms... Easy to forget it’s not actually the author reading it - a good choice of narrator IMO Can relate to and agree with most of the views in the book - with the notable exception that I am in the “Hamilton is a bit of a dick” camp... but that’s just my opinion, other people think he’s amazing and no one is going to die because of it either way... which I think is one of the main points made by the book. Worth a listen if you like Fred,cricket and are over 40 (or 50...) and don’t get the hype of social media...

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
