Summary

Graham Norton has been entertaining audiences and having fun with some of the world's biggest stars for nearly 20 years. He is loved across the nation for his delight in the peculiar and for his ability to find humour and a common ground in all that life brings.

The Life and Loves of a He Devil is Graham's funny and honest memoir on the theme of love. As he shows, it's really the things you love that make you who you are and so Graham tells his story from his Irish childhood to the present day, describing just what and who he loved - and sometimes lost - as a young boy, and his new loves and obsessions - big and small - as he's grown older. It's been 10 years since his last book and, being a decade older, Graham has come to realise that what makes a life interesting is less what happens to you and more what inspires and drives you, what you love....

From Dolly Parton and dogs to wine and Ireland, Graham tells of his life and loves with characteristic humour and outrageous candour.

Weak, but diverting if you're a committed fan

If you are one of Graham Norton's many fans, then you will enjoy this collection of fairly trivial anecdotes. This is one of those rare audiobooks where it's crucial that it's read by the author - if you find his voice cheers you up, then you will find the book keeps you entertained while you are doing something else.

As for me, I like his TV programme very much, but mainly because of his talent for getting his guests to relax and entertain us. The book does a less good job and his stories didn't seem much more amusing than those of anyone off the street, with the obvious exception of those involving celebrities. So a mixed bag, probably best left to Norton devotees.

If you like Graham on telly, you'll love this too.

A frank and amusing autobiography. We can share in his success but he never brags. Quite 'descriptive' about his relationships in parts.....then there's also lots in there about his lovely Mum and immediate family. And the dogs, he really loves his dogs. Loved it. But my absolute favourite is his recent fictional novel, now that is REALLY nice. Holding, it's called Holding.

I laughed, I cried, I want more!

Would you listen to The Life and Loves of a He Devil again? Why?

Yes, candid, honest and thought provoking!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life and Loves of a He Devil?

Laugh out loud funny as expected, but the tears took me by surprise, his reading a letter from his agony column had me in bits!

Have you listened to any of Graham Norton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint is it ended too soon, hopefully there is more where this came from .

Laughed so much it was an ab workout

Graham Norton is absolutely hilarious. This book gave me so much enjoyment, I wish it had been double the length. I am from Ireland but live abroad & feeling a little homesick gave this a listen - his humour & observations are witty, accurate & I laughed so much (especially during the dog chapter) that my stomach ached.

Amusing

Would you consider the audio edition of The Life and Loves of a He Devil to be better than the print version?

Who knew?

Who knew Mr Norton (I use this as a sign of respect) has lived a life so full?
Interesting, Emotional, intelligent and full of common sense - an entertaining book that contain some rules by which to live life.
