Publisher's Summary

Pauline Quirke was a skinny child, a slim teenager, a curvy woman, then - according to her bathroom scales (curse them) - just plain fat. Yes, the "F" word. Tipping the scales at nearly twenty stone, with creaking knees and a dodgy ankle to boot, at the beginning of 2011 Pauline had reached a crisis point. Something had to change, and fast.
It was never going to be an easy ride, but with her trademark warmth and sense of humour, Pauline recounts the highs and lows of the roller-coaster year in which she whips herself, and her life, into shape - with a fair few tales from her celebrated forty-year acting career thrown into the bargain. She reveals all: from the strain of working long hours away from home on one of Britain's most popular soaps to renewing her wedding vows and reuniting with her Birds of a Feather co-stars; from battling the bulge and facing the naysayers to rediscovering the joys of airline travel…without a seatbelt extension.
Honest and revealing, Where Have I Gone? is brimming with brilliantly funny anecdotes and truly moving moments. So put your feet up and join Pauline as she embarks on the most incredible year of her life.

Disappointing Listen.

The author writes of her weight loss journey that involved prepackaged shakes. My research show that Pauline is a spokesperson for the company, which probably influenced her success with the program. Had I known that, I wouldn't have downloaded the book. If you are looking for inspiration and life long nutritional success in the area of weight management, this isn't the book to listen to. If you just want to listen to a biography of a British actress read by the author with authentic British accent and dialect, this perhaps is for you. I did enjoy her voice and hearing about her life just not her choice of diet.

Would you consider the audio edition of Where Have I Gone? to be better than the print version?

Yes, Pauline's voice is so distinctive, so natural.

What did you like best about this story?

Her honesty and her passion, well done Pauline.

The incredible shrinking woman perhaps.
