Genius!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolute genius - so much that I could relate to it was worrying!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Man with the Flaming Battenberg Tattoo?

The toothbrush scene - we've all been there....

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughing whilst training for my marathon - the miles just faded into the background.

Any additional comments?

Simply superb - if only it was longer.

Like Looking in a Mirror

I have seen this set on TV and thought it quite brilliant.

Even more scarily, I saw so much of myself in Rhod. Not sure if that's good or not

Brilliant comedy in every way. You'll never look at shower gel in the same way again

Love Rhod

Had this as a dvd a few years ago and it does really need the final pictures that show as the credits run as it gives a final twist on the whole story.
However, it's Rhod at his shoutiest, angriest best. Enjoy!
