How could the performance have been better?
Get a more competent narrator
Any additional comments?
I listen to A LOT of audio books and this is the first time I have left a review. Well really it's a warning. If you want to hear about Hugh Laurie's life then I would highly recommend you buy a paper book or download to kindle. THIS IS THE WORST NARRATOR EVER. I don't think I will reach the end of the book as the narrator's voice lulls me into unconsciousness. It is like listening to a newsreader but in slow motion. In fact, it is very similar to a hypnotherapy CD I use for insomnia. it really is dreadful and completely spoils what would otherwise be an enjoyable read. I don't understand why such a well known actor, whose best friend is an extremely good narrator (Stephen Fry), would be happy to allow his biography to be read by this man. My advice would be to avoid the audio version of this book and read it instead.

the book was well written but the narrators voice was intensely annoying. would've been better if Hugh had spoken it himself
