Publisher's Summary

When Goose's parents are killed in a car crash on Christmas Eve, his life changes utterly. Living with his increasingly senile Nan, his dog Mutt is the only thing keeping him sane. His only other friend is Frank, a former friend of his father. Frank's own life is falling apart and he has recruited Goose to help him carry out petty theft around the city.

A year to the day since the accident that changed his life, Goose meets Anthony, a strange man who has forgotten who he is, but seems to know more about others than they know about themselves. When Mutt goes missing, Goose has no choice but to rely on Anthony to help find him.

In an adventure that draws in Frank, Goose follows Anthony across Manchester. But at the centre of the mystery is Anthony himself: Who is he? How does he know so much? And can he help Goose and the others find what they're searching for?

A major film starred Eddie Izzard.

Book vs. movie

Saw the movie before I knew there was a book, enjoyed them both immensely, though the book is subtly richer.

An excellent story

This is a fascinating story with a real feel good factor in the twist at the end. It is beautifully read by Eddie Izzard. Well worth listening to. I have seen the film and the ending of the book is slightly different but better in my view.

Beautifully presented

A well written Christmas wonder. The many different characters are brought to life by Eddie Izzard's exceptional performance.
I wish there were more books read by Eddie Izzard.

Fabulous Story

Enjoyed Eddie Izzard's narration for this audiobook. This is really a very enjoyable story. Lots of twists and turns and addictive listening. All the characters were very engaging and I listened to the whole thing in one day.

The only suggestion I would make is on the editing. It would have been better following the last sentence/word, if there had been a short break so the listener could digest the conclusion of the story, as opposed to going straight into credits and dedications etc which spoiled the magic of the piece.

Don't be put off by the title. This isn't a Christmas story but a very well written mystery.

Recommend.
