Holly

Being an American, I've never been able to catch her in anything but the sci-fi series "Red Dwarf", but I loved her in that series and figured if her book is anything like her "Holly", it was bound to be funny. I was most definately not disappointed! "Random Abstract Memory" is a funny look at the comedy/life of Hattie Hayridge as told as only she can. She's smart, funny, sexy, and is about as close as you'll come to a female version of a "Monty Pythoner" as you'll ever find. My only dissapointment is that it's only 68 minutes long....far too short a time to spend with the uncomparible Ms Hayridge!

Bouncy as a rabbit

An interesting look into her life with some funny points. Was unable to keep focused at times from the bouncing around but all the same still interesting to listen to and see how she got the part of Holly (Red Dwarf).

Shortened version

Although it's good to hear Hattie telling her story herself, this is only a shortened version of her full autobiography.
