How wonderful to have one of Spikes best known books read by himself. It can't get better than that. He wrote in a conversational style - his style, so to have him read it is a good match. He is my favourite nut of all, bar none.

I won these books as part of my school leavers achievement award - everybody asked for record tokens - back in 1984 and to hear these wise-cracking books read by their incredible author is just bliss, hearing him crack up at his own jokes is a delight and reminds me how much richer we were with a Spike around, brilliant.

Love the way Spike cracks up at his own reminiscences. Seeing as you're cracking up at the same time it feels like you're sharing the joke between you.

Would you try another book written by Spike Milligan or narrated by Spike Milligan?
No - there are several more in this series, but I won't be buying them
What was one of the most memorable moments of Adolf Hitler?
What were memorable moments in the book as read were not memorable in the recitation ... very little really caught my attention, except the annoyance.
How could the performance have been better?
Authors should not read their own books; Milligan's presentation was marred by too much 'Goonism'; sniggering before a funny story - telegraphing that it was a funny story. Breathless recitation of anecdote as he tried to suppress his own laughter at stories which were funnier to him than me as audience.
Was Adolf Hitler worth the listening time?
Not really, I persevered because i had no internet access to download another book
Any additional comments?
I know from experience with others that I find authors reading their own work a distraction from the work; I had hoped for better; I was disappointed.
