Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Maybe not, subject matter is a bit near the knuckle and fairly one dimensional. Certainly think it should carry and age restriction warning as I couldn't play this in the company of younger people - or maybe the very old as well! Also some references are dated now and there's visual humour that is lost
What was most disappointing about Frank Skinner’s story?
Some of the visual gags cannot be imagined so you miss out. having embarked along a "let's shock 'em with sexual talk" I expected there to be other topics interspersed but it was pretty much mono-themed
Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favourite?
This was three stand up routines so this field isn't strictly relevent. However, it gives me an opportunity to say I like Frank Skinner and have been to see him live. Very funny. Unfortunately, I felt a bit let down as he has a wide pool of subject to extract humour and here it was mostly themed about his sexual experiences
Do you think Frank Skinner needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes - newer material, or even a dip into his back catalogue to get wider topic areas provided references aren't too dated
I have watched Frank Skinner on television over the years and have found his style of comedy to be witty and observant. I bought the audio book expecting something in a similar vein, I was right and wrong. He is still the fanastic comedy story teller but the audio book is a no holes barred keep the kids in another room romp from start to finish. Certainly not one to listen to with Dad and mum..... she would have a heart attack!!!!! A good length book at approx 3.30 hours makes it well worth every penny.
