Really enjoyed this audiobook. An interesting character. And nice he was telling his own story.
From beginning to the end I was captivated by this very funny, interesting and just a bloody nice bloke!
This book exceeded my expectations. I purchased it thinking it might be a light comedy about his life an a second-generation Persian immigrant, however i got much more.
Would you listen to Hopeful again? Why?
Yes, most certainly. Omid Djalili spins a tale like no other. Down to Earth, an hint of crazy, lots of humor and of course, honesty. One listening will not be enough.
The choice of Omid doing the narration is a true gem of a decision. I have admired this man's humor for many years and no one but him could do himself justice. You can picture Omid in the Studio having fun narrating this book.
Have you listened to any of Omid Djalili’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have his other two books and enjoy them immensely.
Any additional comments?
I have to say, in today's age there are jokes that would be considered wrong if said by any other person but Omid somehow gets away with it and makes us laugh doing it.
I find Omid a great comedian, I adore everything he does. He is able to, in this day of (as I see it) too much political correctness say what he does in a manner we just love, yet potentially said by others could be seen as racist, derogatory and offensive. Somehow Omid gets away with it - to our enjoyment. An honest comedian.
Well done Omid a fine book, a fine narration. And made a few travels on Public Transportation a lot more fun for me.
