Another Brilliant listen

Danny King does it again.
I loved the hitman diaries and this is just as well written and will have you laughing, chuckling and giggling before you realise everyone else is watching you.

A fun listen but too many "f***" and *c***" for me

I bought this as I wanted a light-hearted, British read, and The Burglar Diaries was indeed light-hearted, well-written, British, and brilliantly narrated to boot.

I think that this might be a better book to read, as opposed to "listen to". I say this because I found the constant swearing a bit much. I don't have a problem with swearing, but if you took out all the "effing, c***ing" and so on, I think that the book would be a quarter shorter. It just jarred every time the narrator swore and distracted me from listening.

In terms of content, I thought that the philosophy of the burglar was interesting and enjoyed the insight into the character's thought processes and think this is a great read or listen if you can get past swearing.
