This is a great story, but as with the previous book the narrator changes intermittently, which is very jarring and breaks the immersion in my opinion. If there is some artistic reasoning behind it, then it escapes me.

This memoir ambles along with enough detail to immerse you, yet not so much that the pace suffers. It is more a series of chronologically arranges anecdotes than a cohesive narrative per se. The narrator, however, lets down the story and writing with his consistently irritating tone, embarrassing imitations of British and American accents, and his annoying whisper-shouting. I feel that if there is shouting in the narrative, there should be shouting in the performance.

Enjoyed it overall!
