better if dave stopped pretending to be posh

Would you listen to another book narrated by Si King and Dave Myers ?

yes I would, I find Simon is honest and trustworthy, Dave would be better if he was more natural and didn't try talking 'posh'

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

most of what Simon says, I don't do spoilers, but I got a lot of what he says

Any additional comments?

at first I wasn't very impressed with this one, basically Dave was trying to much to talk posh instead of just talking as Simon does. in fact I gave up after the first few chapters. I then tried again and I'm glad I did. the story gives a lot of insight into where they both come from, I enjoy watching them on the telly but always had my doubts, (I know that doesn't make sense) but now I see them both from a different perspective. Dave has had his heartaches, again I don't do spoilers, but a lesser man would give up. As for Simon King... who I sometimes saw as an attention seeking clown..(how very wrong I was, and I apologise for that) but he is actually a very decent genuine bloke, who's main drive is his family and friends, this is a no holds barred look at a bloke who just worked and worked and luckily gets his chance, and quite rightly, though it all comes at a price.. this is a very enjoyable moving look at a couple of northern blokes.. good luck to you both

The best audiobook I've ever read

Wow, what an inspiring, hilarious, emotional and uplifting book this is. I tend to listen in the car and had to pull over twice. Firstly because I shed a tear (and I'm not the sort of bloke to do this) due to heartfelt way Si and Dave read their stories. But also due to bellyaching laughter at some of the encounters they've had. They come across as two totally genuine people who love what they do and don't take it for granted. I wish them every success and am off to listen to it all over again!
