Our favorite moments from Up Against the Wall

Let me tell you, I played that part to the hilt.
…this is who they’ve been waiting for.
… the two most dangerous men in Berlin.
Folks used to say Nick Harper looked a lot like me…

David Hasselhoff

About the Creator

David Hasselhoff is a multifaceted performer and artist whose career as an actor and chart-topping singer have made him a household name in the US and overseas. In 1982, David Hasselhoff was cast as Michael Knight on the primetime hit series Knight Rider. After the huge success of Knight Rider, David returned to television in 1989 to produce and star in the lifeguard drama, Baywatch, which became the most watched show in TV history. (David himself remains a fixture in The Guinness Book of World Records as the most watched actor in the history of television.)

On stage, he has starred on Broadway in Jekyll & Hyde, played Billy Flynn in the West End production of Chicago, and performed in the Las Vegas stage production of The Producers. For seven holiday seasons, David broke box office records and starred as Captain "Hoff The Hook" in the UK Pantomime production of Peter Pan. He also has been a celebrity judge on the blockbuster series, America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent, and can be seen in two installments of the popular Syfy franchise, Sharknado. His film credits include The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Click, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, and Hop.

His 2015 comedy series, Hoff the Record, won the International Emmy Award for Best Comedy and is now streaming on Netflix. In 2017, David appeared as himself in Marvel’s hit feature film, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. (Director James Gunn personally wrote the film’s end title song, "Guardians Inferno," for David to perform.) Killing Hasselhoff, a feature film David produced and starred in, was released later that year. For Up Against the Wall, an Audible Original Production, David served as both author and narrator. The spy thriller takes place at the Berlin Wall and calls upon David to use his acting skills and Knight Rider training to save the day—and Berlin.

Hofftastic!

David Hasselhoff does it again! Add fiction author to his credits, that already include singer, actor, writer, director, and producer. All around fantastic entertainer! This book will have you painting a picture of the characters and becoming attached to them from the very beginning. The book flies by, as if you're caught up in a movie. Great writing, and GREAT presentation by David! Hope to hear more from him soon.

Unbelievable and Cheesy

Hearing David Hasselhoff read his own book sounded like a good idea, but it’s apparent that the book is basically far-fetched narcissist fiction. DH is the ultimate hero and the entire story resolves because he’s amazing and popular. It was a struggle to finish but I wanted to make sure I was giving it a fair chance. I will not read this again.

Entertainment value off the charts!!!

The story, the narration, I mean it is David Hasselhoff, and he gives the listener great entertainment value.
Is this a serious listen, no, but I did not expect it to be. It was fun, funny, tongue in cheek, cheeky. I was not in this listen for the literary greatness, but the entertainment value was off the charts. Light, silly, predictable, make ya laugh entertainment.
Come on the star of Baywatch, Knight Rider, and singer of Freedom, what is not to like? Creating diversion along the way by making fun of himself and the James Bond genre. Smart man. Worked for me and with the quasi cliffhanger teaser I would purchase the next installment.

Wow

Just wow.

If you're not a fan of the Hoff this might not be for you.

If you feel like inflicting damage on yourself try adding a drinking rule for when he says his name.

I smashed this book in about 2 days, really enjoyed it. Don't think it'll be everyone's cup of tea though!

Great fun

Fast-paced, funny and well written. Engagingly read, the occasional slurred syllables easily forgiven by the warmth and good humour of the voice- lovely accent.
Perhaps a couple of chapters too long, and a little predictable if you know your spy genre / Bond films.
Having said that, I looked forward to my commute for the first time ever and found myself really wishing it was true: lots of nostalgia for Knight Rider and Baywatch, and of course The Hoff!
