Genius!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolute genius - so much that I could relate to it was worrying!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Man with the Flaming Battenberg Tattoo?

The toothbrush scene - we've all been there....

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

Laughing whilst training for my marathon - the miles just faded into the background.

Any additional comments?

Simply superb - if only it was longer.

Rhod Gilbert

Brilliant storyline, exceptional comedy! Reminded me of an early 'Banana Boots,' concert, anger, irony and every day life all mixed together to create a rib tickling production.

This is one amazing well told story. It amazes me that Rhod Gilbert can get a whole hour from telling one really good and entertaining story.
