"Never a dull moment"
Yes, due to the nature of who the story is about. The message/story is better delivered by himself. Just like watching him on TV.
The way that it was narrated- very funny.
Story of his Childhood.
Brilliant Audiobook. Brilliantly delivered. Would highly recommend a listen!
"Entertaining from the first word to the last!"
Quiet easily the best, most entertaining audible book I've listened to. Michael McIntyre brings his story to life in such a way that the only disappointment is when the story ends.
Having Michael reading to you enables him to deliver the punch lines with perfect timing.
If you like him and you enjoy his shows then this book is a must.
Listening to this book made training for a marathon easy. It didn't help me run but I was able to switch off and just listen. Of course I looked a little strange running along laughing and smiling!
"Laugh out loud funny...."
.... of course it is.
Michael is funny anyway, and i think him reading the book makes it. If id read it I probably wouldnt have enjoyed it as much.
As autobiography's go its a story about someones life, but Michael makes his sound far more hilarious than everyone else.
Interesting and hilarious.
Very much recommended.
By far the best autobiography that I've listened to/ read.
Many parts of this book had me crying with laughter
I would recommend this to anyone that has ever seen Michael McIntyre perform and enjoyed his material, the book gives a great - and humorous - insight on his rise to fame and fortune. I highly recommend it.
A great read/listen. I have such respect for the struggle he had in life. A real insight. Incredibly hard working guy.
The fact he narrates his own book is a real gem.
Himself of course!
A real must read.
"Funny and Entertaining"
I am new to audible and this book was great to listen to. Both myself and my son loved it and have started listening again. Thank you Michael a great listen.
We loved 'Gran'
I would have loved to listen all the way through in sitting but unfortunately I listened over a couple of nights.
"Hilarious touching and self effacing"
Listen to life and Laughing ..don't read it! Though Michael mischievously accuses the listener of being a bit lazy in making him read it. But his humour is so infectious and his voice just bubbles with his energy and huge sense of fun. I've quite fallen in love with him and think Kitty is very lucky. I wasn't a particular fan before but am now.
His impressions are so funny and accurate but the most memorable part is a bit rude and relates to Michaels puberty and some crossed wires. MUST have been made up, surely?Or certainly exaggerated but was truly one of the numerous laugh out loud bits!
The vast majority of the book is funny and light hearted but there are poignant and very touching parts too. His loss of his father at such a developmental stage of his life, was heartbreaking and tenderly described. My only small criticism is that Michael speaks very very quickly in enthusiastic bursts. Other times he speaks quietly in a confidential sort of way, as though you and he are tucked cosily in a corner. It all adds to the humorous tone, but can be a bit hard to follow.
Being an autobiography it is not a book that has to be listened in one sitting. But I did listen avidly and gave a tremendous lift to my mood. It served as a great distraction at a tricky time
I cant't recommend this audio enough. I loved it and envisage me listening to it again. I've not felt the urge to review before so I think that writing this illustrates how much I enjoyed the book. Buy it!
Yes because I found him to be a very funny comedian having seen him live many times the book just reinforces the feeling.
Himself because he is so observational in his comments
Only live when he was brilliant
Uplifting, interesting, hilarious
So many, the rendition of God Save the Queen on guitar and associated story has to be my favourite.
Like hours and hours of stand up, amazing!
Multiple sittings on the way to work.
If I'm having a stressful day visiting different places putting Life & Laughing on cheers me up and de-stresses me every time!
"Very enjoyable, and fun"
Michael McIntyre shows through as a really nice guy, very unsure of himself and naive in the extreme, I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions - really worth a listen.
At some points he narrates rather quickly, but I felt it was his 'pent up energy' and the fact that he felt a bit silly reading aloud a book 'all about me'. It was lovely to hear the laughter in his voice, I really enjoyed listening.
