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.

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.

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.

Me:Moir

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

great but too short

fantastically funny but short. deals with Vic's pre fame days. takes a few chapters to get used to Vic's unique writing and narration style but once you do, you will be hooked.

is it fact or is it fiction?Maybe a bit of both

First off Jim is an incredible story teller who will have you laughing out loud on a regular basis, his delivery is fantastic & I'd happily listen to him read a phone book. This is a collection of stories and tales from his days growing up in the North East of England which will remind you of the daft stuff you did as a kid in your town plus give you an insight into the man he has become and the career he developed.

At last. A really funny book.

Jim narrates his autobiography (part the first). A tale of much mirth and jolliness. Plenty of "laugh out loud" stories and anecdotes.
The book covers his years through childhood school and early employment. A career in music diverts him to London in search of fame and fortune.
I am looking forward to Me Moir part the second.

Should have waited for part 2

A truly unremarkable life so far, wait for part 2. Unless your keen to hear about his school shoes. I wasn’t, when I was as school we couldn’t afford shoes.
