"Don't listen to this on the train"
I rarely read these celebrity books but am so so glad I made an exception for this one. It was excellent...and on several occasions it made me shake with laughter on the train to the horror of the person sitting next to me. Do listen to it...you won't be disappointed
"Laugh out loud funny"
Thank you Michael McIntyre for writing and then narrating this book, brilliantly funny and at times touching I haven't laughed so much in ages. I can't recommend this enough.
"As entertaining as ever"
I always enjoy hearing Michael McIntyre's hilarious comments on his observations, so I really enjoyed hearing him read his book about his life so far. I found it interesting, engaging and every bit as funny as I had hoped.
"A MUST LISTEN!"
This audio book offers more than reading the book ever could as Michael McIntyre reads the book himself which makes every single thing he say's funny will be listening again and again i am sure!
Thank you Michael McIntyre for giving me a way to read this book.
"Exhausting but a delight"
Definitely not a relaxing listen as Michael is bursting with energy. However, I found it very interesting to hear about his life before fame. The story is told in true McIntrye style!
"like listening to an entertaining friend!"
Like the man - strangely endearing, effortlessly chatty and leaves you feeling like you've been in the company of a kind and funny man - now can we have his wife's version please? Now THAT would be interesting!
"A very pleasant and at times very funny experience"
I think Michael McIntyre could read me a phone book out loud and I'd enjoy it: his voice is so friendly, you can often times practically see the smile on his face when you hear him talk, and I love to listen to him because of it.
In this audio book he tells the story of how he became who he is now: what he experienced as a child, as a teenager, as a young adult. The story has its ups and downs, serious and funny moments, and it was easy to follow if you listen to it in shorter pieces on the go (like I did). Once I reached the end I started to listen to it immediately for the second time, that's how much I liked it.
Summa summarum: A fun book worth to hear!
Ps. Michael, not all of us listen to audio books because we're too lazy to read... and I doubt I would have enjoyed this book half as much as I did if I hadn't had you to read it out loud to me!
"It's not so easy being funny"
If you like Michael McIntyre, you'll like this book. I found that for the first 5 or 6 chapters he was trying to hard to make jokes of every part of his early life, but after that it settled down. His early years were quite a story though with divorces, step brothers and having Kenny Everett as a surrogate father.
It also shows he put in the hard graft of many years on the comedy circuit before becoming famous. It want given to him on a plate.
I'd recommend this book if you want to see how a funny an got funny.
"Funny, and nice too"
There appears to be massively exceptional about McIntyre's life (except that he becomes one of the nations leading comedians, of course, but do you see what I mean? He's a bloke, loving family, plenty of cash, has a career, gets a girlfriend . . . you know) but he manages to see the funny side of everything he does which is really very appealing. Apart from the bit about middle managers. As a middle manager, that stung a little. I thought this was a brilliant book, I loved pretty much every minute.
Ilove Michael Mcintire and this was not a dissapointment.
Very funny and I got some peculiar looks as I strted laughing loudly while listening to the book on my ipod.
A great listen
