Really enjoyed this even though I've never been a big KR devotee or lover of autobiographies. Richards covers all the main points of his life, the excesses, life in the Stones etc and like any autobiography, there are omissions and some self-promotion. But you won't read this for its authoritativeness - what makes it very readable is the voice and perspective of the author himself - playful, no holds barred, and imbuing a zest for life in everything he does. Have to say I also loved the trio of narrators, though I puzzled why they chose this format rather than having Richards read the whole thing himself.
The Faithful Traveler
I love Simon Pegg, and nearly every movie he's been in. This audiobook is fantastic--his reading is awesome, the stories are fun. BUT WHY is it abridged?! I didn't realize that (I know, I wasn't paying attention in my excitement in getting this book) until AFTER I'd listened to it, then started reading some interviews about it, and thought, "Hey, that wasn't in the book!" Now, what? I have to buy the book itself and REREAD it to get the missing bits?!
BOO Randomhouse. Boo.
Who wants to buy half a book? Seriously? BOO.
