"A touching, honest, brilliant insight into a life"
I bought this book after listening to Jennifer Saunders autobiography and she mentions this book as giving a good description of their early years as a comedy duo. I was a little surprised that the author doesn't read it herself but some of the passages are just too tear inducingly painful to be said aloud by her and I quite understand. Liza Tarbuck does a wonderful narration, capturing the spirit of the book and the character of Dawn French. No easy feat to accomplish and she does it so effortlessly that you are drawn in completely. A big recommendation and thank you to all involved for giving us this superb book to enjoy.
Lisa is a great narrator and very dawn like which was great. The story was not what I expected until towards the end (last hour). initially a very personal story that I hadn't expected.
"a really great read would recommend."
a great read giving early insight into how French and Saunders came about plus early childhood of Dawn and school days.
loved it! everything I expected a bit more besides! had me laughing out loud! even spat my cup of tea out at one point!
I like Dawns honesty and open ness , it makes you see the true her , I have listened twice now
Really expected a more exciting read , sorry dawn I love you and think your fab in most ways but this didn't have that much substance.
Written in a genius way of writing letters to various people in her life! Hilarious in parts touching in others but utterly open and frank throughout. Narration by Liza Tarbuck- inspired choice- made the funny bits funnier with her expressiveness and reined it in a bit when needed- true professional narrator- hope she does more in future.
Makes you laugh, makes you cry and Liza is amazing narrating. I loved this so much that I have bought it for my Mum.
I can understand why dawn couldent read this her self made me laughand cry brilliant book
Was initially disappointed that dawn didn't read it but got used to it however the voice then started to sound like another comedian. Heartfelt.
