Summary

Narrated by the author, and featuring an interview with Jeremy Front. Sometimes things are more ordinary than you think. And sometimes they're a whole lot odder than you can possibly imagine.
Rebecca Front has always drawn on experiences from her life in her award-winning acting and comic writing. In her debut book, she reveals herself as a master storyteller: sharp, witty, honest, and highly attuned to the absurdities of life and the oddities of human nature.
By turns poignant, comic, and uplifting, Curious is a book of stories, all of them true, though sometimes perhaps a little bent out of shape in the telling. We learn, among other things, why a Mexican wave is a symbol of oppression, how to navigate a conversational cul-de-sac with a French vegan train driver, and why keeping a pet rabbit on a lead is perfectly normal.
This is a beguiling celebration of the curiosities of everyday life, and of what it is to be curious - in every sense of the word.

Could do so much better

First of all I would like to say that I am a huge fan of Rebecca Front. I think she is a hugely talented comedian and one of the best things on British TV. Unfortunately my high regard does not extend to this book which I thought was hugely disappointing. I was expecting a cornucopia of witty and entertaining tales but instead I found this was a self absorbed account of not very interesting events and her own personal neuroses. There were parts that were mildly amusing but it was like she was holding back in case she whipped her readers into a dangerous frenzy. I'm afraid her account of her 'inspirational' teacher even made me feel slightly nauseous. I think Rebecca possibly has got a good book inside her but it isn't this.

Fascinating and amusing

Rebecca Front's reading of her book is excellent. Her on-screen persona is one of a calm and 'centred' woman, so it came as a surprise to find that she is as full of questions and doubt as the rest of us ! This is a fascinating book in which you can benefit from her insight and life-lessons which are both amusing and moving.

An excellent journey

I could listen to Rebecca Front speak all day long. Loved this audiobook! She's witty, engaging, and speaks quite frankly about life and some of those uncomfortable quirks many of us have but are kind of embarrassed to own up to. It's just kind of refreshing to listen to someone so warm, and ridiculously funny, be so matter of fact about it all. and for someone who is, admittedly, not so thrilled with the idea of travel, she takes you on a most wonderful journey. Well done!

Beautifully written and read by Rebecca Front

The narration is smooth. Her voice is soothing. Her musings are creative and wonderful. I thank Rebecca Front for creating this fun and thoughtful book . I thank her again for reading it herself. Audible listeners will enjoy their time spent with this book. I am a huge fan of Rebecca's brother Jeremy Front with his Charles Paris mysteries and other works. The Front family sense of humor sparkles and shines in their artistic creations.
