Touchline Tales didn't touch me.

Would you try another book written by Des Lynam or narrated by Des Lynam?


What could Des Lynam have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made it less about 2 old men chatting about old times gone by.

How could the performance have been better?

Not sure it could.

What character would you cut from Touchline Tales?

Not an appropriate question.

Any additional comments?

I like Des lineham and respected him as a sports broadcaster but this book left me rather cold and bored.
