Knowing the ending of this story through the press does not diminish the book. By the end it does read like a thriller and it is fascinating and heartwarming to know that there are brave people out there who would risk their careers and reputations to reveal the truth.

One of my favourite Great Course

Always a pleasure to listen to a passionate, interested and engaging lecturer. Pamela Bedore is wonderful. Only problem is my list of recommended reading will occupy the rest of this year

As another reviewer said before me I honestly learnt so much from this. No gimmicks just research and a balanced opinion. You don't have to follow it but I'm willing to try

Mr Cleese is wrong we do care about his youth and his struggles and what made him one of the most influential entertainers of his generation.
I have to agree his voice started out unsure and I was slightly disappointed having really looked forward to this audiobook. But as other reviewers have pointed out he warmed up and it was such a pleasure to listen to him laugh at the memories and sketches.
I have no idea how time consuming and painful it is to write an autobiography and I understand as a fan of his work I can't really ask for more than the pleasure he has already given so many BUT I am asking for more please. Listening to this audiobook is as close as I'll get to sitting down with him over a coffee and asking questions about his life. I just want a few more hours please.

Trying to save my children from commercial radio I've been turning to audio books. I wasn't sure what to expect from this one but there was great interest and silence from my 9 year old son. We were both captivated by the story and the telling. when you find yourself sitting in the car spellbound waiting for the next part of the story instead of rushing into the house at the end of the day I guess you have to say you loved it

Brilliant actor

having a book read to you adds another dimension to the story. If you hate the voice and if you are familiar with a story but dislike the actor's take on the story it makes for a painful listen. Fortunately this was not a painful few hours. I am a fan of Mr Cumberbatch and I have to say his involvement in this was one of the reasons I decided to listen. I'm glad I did. I think I could listen to him forever.

I'm not a great fan of Graham Greene and this isn't my favourite book but Colin Firth's reading is wonderful. Worth listening for the wonderful performance. Still not a fan of the book but very impressed with Mr Firth. Well deserved awards
