I loved this audiobook...and the fact that Dave Gorman himself narrates is the icing on the cake. If you're a fan of Dave Gorman you will love this. I wish there were an unabridged version of The Googlewack as well.
I'm a big fan of Dave Gorman and I really wanted to like this audio book. Dave's a good comic writer but he's no actor. Dave concentrates on reading, rather than delivery, which is a great shame. If you try to concentrate on the content then you can make out the really funny scripting, but the delivery is surprisingly flat. Quite unexpected from someone who is intimate with the subject matter and well versed in comic timing.
I'll buy this book to read, but the audio book was a dissapointing package.

I've been a fan of Dave Gorman for a long time and this is probably one of his more personal stories.
The book works very well as audio and Dave's narration ebbs and flows with the narrative in a manner that only the author can achieve.
As a trip through some of the lesser known games, it really does deliver - names of games you've never heard of but really want to try - Settlers of Catan, Kubb and, in my opinion the most exciting one, Khet.
My wife and I listened to it on a long journey and it really was delightful.
Prepare yourself for a very open and personal experience with Dave.
