I loved this! It was easy to listen to in 1 sitting. It is a fascinating topic of chillies and which one is hottest and the drama around having the “world’s hottest chilli” title. It was free, but I would have paid to listen.

Ok, I’m a fan!

It was everything I’d hoped for and more. I’ve been following Steve for over 5 years now; and many of the stories we have heard before on the podcast, but it was still so great to hear them again. If you are in the #DangleNavy just buy the book. It’s fun! If you are interested in reading a memoir about the difficulty and struggle to make it in sports media then read this book, you might get a few tips. You’ll definitely get a bunch of laughs. Steve reads this very well, he even breaks a few (own) narration rules, by ad-libing some a sides.

There are very few books that when you get to the last chapter you are so sad that it’s about to end; this is one of them. Also, until this story, I had no idea that the Germans occupied the Channel Islands during the Second World War. It was a total eye opener to life during that time and the recovery after the war.

It’s a stand alone great story of acceptance and tolerance

It was supposed to be a joke. It’s was supposed to be a big middle finger at Mr Mike Pence. Actually it’s a great story of love, acceptance and tolerance of others, regardless if they live their life differently to you. The ensemble cast just makes it even better. Spend the few dollars, it’s all going to charity.

David Suchet is Poirot, but he is more, he narrates this fantastic Agatha Christie story as if it is a dramatisation.
If you like Poirot, you'll love this narration. If you have never read Agatha Christie, then this is a great place to start.
Well worth it. I'm ready to listen again, to see if I can pick the clues when Poirot does.
