    Story
    "Witty, interesting, but rambling in parts."

    I adore John Mortimer, so much so, I have ordered all of his made for television plays after being reminded of them and hearing the background stories that created the backdrop to them in this book. Parts were fascinating... his friendship with Niven and Clark Gable, the making of Voyage around my Father, parts less so and would have benefited from sharper editing. There doesn't seem to be any order to the stories he tells. The book tends to jump from subject to subject without any clear connection of subject matters which leaves the book rambling in parts. The narrator does an excellent job in parts but also falls flat in places and I found my concentration waning. Not his best, but there is enough to make it a good read but not a favourite.

    "Lightweight but enjoyable"

    This autobiography brings back happy memories of hearing John Mortimer on the radio, and revealed further anecdotes about his life. It was lightweight but enjoyable, and Bill Wallis is one of my favourite narrators.
