A joy from start to finish....

I decided to downloaded this book with no more information on it's content other than I am big fan of Vic Reeves' television work. I couldn't have been happier with this decision.

This abridged autobiography is a fascinating and hilarious account of the early life of Vic Reeves (or Jim Moir), from birth to 6th form. It's not the most accurate of accounts as Vic likes to make up more elaborate and imaginative versions of events, but this just makes it all the more enjoyable to listen to. He is an extremely engrossing and naturally funny narrator, and is clearly enjoying re-living the memories through audio book. I found myself chuckling out loud wherever I was listening to it, which can obviously be a tad embarrassing.

The only negative comment I could make is that it ends too soon! I would love there to be an unabridged version of this also read by the man himself, and for there to be more beyond his life at school.

But I can still not fault the content as it is, and can only urge anyone that is either a fan of his, or even those who are just fans of comedic autobiographies, to grab this immediately as it will not disappoint.

Not bad

Slightly disappointed, it is funny but at times is very wooden. I prefer vic when he's being silly and slapstick but generally a great insight to his life. There are funny parts but hey it is an autobiography it's not a stand up comedy show.

He wouldn't let it lie

Marvellous ramblings, my only gripe - why abridged, why not the whole? Even so, I enjoyed this very much indeed.

Me:Moir

Read well by Vic, but concerns only the early parts of his life - The nexty one should be the interesting one.

Absurdly brilliant memoir

I do like Vic Reeves who is a character created by Jim Moir, And this is the memoir of Jim Moir, amusingly titled Me:Moir, which, in itself is an act of comic genius. Along with Spike Milligan and Eric Morecambe, Vic Reeves is one of those people who can make you giggle just by thinking about him. I had already bought this book as an actual book (remember those, kids?) and had read the first few chapters when I saw that this was available on Audible too narrated by the man himself.
It does not disappoint. It tells the story of a young Jim growing up in Leeds and moving to Darlington and his childhood adventures including, amongst other things, budgerigars, painted haversacks, terrapin sandwiches, Hawkwind and the inspiration for the "Dove from Above" feature on Big Night. Bob Mortimer only gets a few passing mentions in the book. Presumably because he has now found his own fame and fortune larking about on the riverbanks with Paul Whitehouse. This is as absurd as it is brilliant.

Brilliant book

I've read this book before and loved it, so decided to get it on Audible. Vic Reeves really brings it to life. It starts off as you would imagine, lots of surreal flights of fantasy. As the book goes on I think he starts to enjoy the biography side of story telling, and although still surreal in parts he gives us a great account of he's childhood around the North East.

A steaming turd

As funny as a kick in the bollocks. Reeves seems to believe in it though, which is depressing.
