Oddly monotone

Michael Caine's led a rags-to-riches life and has some amusing stories to tell along the way. Unfortunately his performance on this 1992 abridged reading is almost completely flat and monotone. About the only time it perks up is when he remarks, as part of a major edit in the story, that if we want to know more about his numerous films we'll need to read the book - I could almost hear him laughing as he said it. His 2010 autobiography 'The Elephant to Hollywood' (also available here on Audible) is far more entertaining and far better value too. It covers the same ground and then some - a generous, unabridged 10 hours of the irrepressible Mr Caine rounding up his life so far.

Good but short!

Micheal Caine gives an interesting and touching review of his life up until his 58th year. When I bought this audio book I did 't realise it was abridged so it only lasts just over two hours which was a disappointment but it was an entertaining two hours.
