I'm afraid I'm a bit off a late bloomer when it come to Julie Walters...I'm 53 and love British shows. I happened on to the dinnerladies and was so excited to find this show. As I do with all my British shows, I instantly get the names off the characters that are brilliant and see whether they are now. Sadness to find that Victoria Wood had passed at such a young age. Then Julie Walters, wonderful she's alive and she's still brilliant. OMG she was Mrs Weesley, got to watch all the Harry Potter's again... now her book on audible, with her reading it.... just a brilliant look into a massively wonderful actress. Thank you Julie Walters
This book is simply wonderful, it is well narrated.One of the things that puts this autobiography in a different league is that she is able to make this story not just funny but touching, I found myself laughing and crying at the same time.
She also shines with her ability animate those around her. Thus the Irish alcoholic father of one of her childhood friends has lips that are described as follows: 'They flopped around clumsily, an impediment to the words that came pouring through them in unintelligible strings.'
My only critism is that it ends in 1988, hopefully Vol:II follows shortly.

This is a must read, made me laugh, made me cry, but most of all I could not wait to get back to it!! An amazing lady with lots to tell. Great to listen to as it was just as if she was in the room with you!
