Ohhhh, ya beautyyy!!

Wow. Just finished this audiobook and I am nearly at a loss for words. Been a Liverpool supporter for over a dozen years, and this book taps directly into all the emotions over that period of time. The elations of Istanbul to the slip against Chelsea. Stevie truly has an incredible story to match his incredible career. This is a MUST for any Liverpool fan and any soccer/football fan for that matter.

As for the narration, it's well done. He nearly sounds like Gerrard is reading the book himself! There were a few patches where the cadence of each sentence was too similar and you can drift, but it's a small gripe for an overall great performance.

What a book. What a beauty.

Scouser born and bred

If you love Liverpool FC you will love everything about the captain we love. Narration was spot on to Stevie and felt as if he was the one narrating.

The story bounces back between his struggles of Liverpool FC and his struggles with International duty. The main plot of his biography is the amazing 2013-2014 season with Liverpool FC, with flashbacks of his best games in between with the main plot.

I highly recommend this book to any open hearted football fan about one of the greatest footballers of all time

Oh you Beauty!

They found a wonderful narrator and it is more artfully told than I expected (ie) it narrates the last two seasons while also dipping deftly into the most important moments of his career.

Great insights into one of the most gifted footballers England and Europe has ever seen.

I loved this book. The reader has a Liverpool accent which makes for a great experience. It's as though you are actually listening to Stevie G at times. I'm an Arsenal supporter but this book is great for anyone who interested in learning about the history of Liverpool and understand the special relationship that city has with our beautiful game of football.

Just a little bit self indulgent at times

It was interesting to hear some of the back story to games and events in Steven's life but I will be honest and say as great a player as he was, and as much as there is to admire about the man.. he does come across a bit full of himself at times

A great book, even for neutrals

If you could sum up My Story in three words, what would they be?

Inspiring, classy, captivating

Who was your favorite character and why?

Stevie, obviously. This is a tremendous insight into what it's like to sacrifice everything to chase a dream and what it's like riding that roller coaster when you get there

Which character – as performed by Michael Ryan – was your favourite?

Michael Ryan reads the story well and in the right way to capture what Stevie was trying to get across

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The world may never see a man like this ever again.

I wrongly thought it would be boring.

Stevie manages to brilliantly convey his emotional roller coaster ride through his career.

I'll be listening to snippets of it again with my football mad boy.
