review 1: The reason I gave this book an 'ok' rating was that as far as a biography went, it was pretty guarded - or at least that is how it came across as being to me. In the book, Rob talks about his childhood and teens and then his long slog, trying to make it in film and TV. What the book lacks is anything terribly personal or insightful. At the start he pretty much states that aspects of his personal life (such as talking about his ex wife and 2nd wife) would not be covered. So what we get is pretty much the ins and outs of his professional career - interesting in itself, though as a biography, it doesn't make a well rounded book to read.
review 2: I had this autobiography as a Christmas present and got into it as soon as I picked it up to read from my "to read" pil
... moree. It was like reading something written by a friend as Rob has a brilliant narrative voice.I really enjoyed reading about his youth and was suprised that he had a fairly privileged upbringing compared to the majority in South Wales. I think it made it better for me as I knew a lot of the places he talked about in the book so it made it more personal for me. The book itself only tells Rob's life story up until 2000, so pre Gavin and Stacey and basically pre fame! Rob's struggle to make it was pretty interesting, but the last 80 or so pages runined my enjoyment to be honest as he went into too much detail about the writing and making of Human Remains and Marion and Geoff. I understand that these are the shows that made him, but it just wasn't for me. All in all a good read with an easy going style and packed with humour. less
