Product Description

Review

What a life! I loved it. Almost as good as sitting with him and listening to his stories (Rob Brydon)

'What a life! It's a very gentlemanly book. Inspiring. I do hope that many parents read this book and take a good hard look at themselves.' (Roberta Taylor)

A wonderful story of survival against the odds told with compassion and humour. This is so much more than a showbiz autobiography. (Anne Robinson)

This captivating and honest book is a warts and all look at love, marriage, family and showbiz. What is loveable about Larry Lamb is that he is just as happy to tell us about the toe curling fiascos as he is about the triumphs that have led to leading roles on Broadway and on British television . (Julia Gregson)

Book Description

An incredibly moving story of fatherhood and family - good and bad - from the star of Eastenders and Gavin and Stacey

Format: Hardcover
I saw Larry on 'Who Do You Think You Are?' and thought he came across as a really nice and genuine person. It made me really want to read this book.

I think I must have been reading a different book to the other reviewers. It started off really well and it really felt like Larry was sat talking to you. I was really interested.

About halfway through I totally lost interest. I got sick of hearing about his womanising ways and started to actually become quite annoyed with him. I also thought each tiny little event in his life was so over described. It became boring.

I am a huge fan of Gavin and Stacey but it got little more than two pages. His acting career in Eastenders was briefly described. And what he found out in 'Who Do You Think You Are?' wasn't even mentioned. I found it all very disappointing.

Format: Paperback
I liked this, BUT, I though that a lot of his personal life, was glossed over quickly, to move on the the lovey dovey showbiz world, with loads of names of people we have never heard of, unless you are in the showbiz world.
I mean, after the first couple of chapters, his mum was never mentioned hardly!! What happened to her? Where HAD she been living, (there is a pic of her in old age, so he must have had some answer? What about his sister Penny, not mentioned after she was 5 ! And Wes, how did he pan out? He seemed more interested in telling us of his sexual conquests, and the worst for me, his first child, a daughter, who he seems to have no intention of bringing into his life, but he did "support her financially". I hope she doesnt read this, and realize he hardly gave her a thought. This from a man who adores his son George, how can he dismiss his girl!? This has put me off him really. Wish I hadn't read it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can concur with most of the comments of the other reviewers.

However, I was a little uncomfortable with Larry's apparently total focus on "me", his search for the right woman to fill the void of the mothering he so obviously missed as a youngster and the women he left in his wake during his search.

Although he was light years away in his attitude to his partners from that of his awful father I would have liked to have seen a little more understanding and contrition towards the women who shared his life and his bed.

Having just finished this book, I felt compelled to write a review.
It is a great page turner-not at all the usual run-of-the-mill 'actors life for me' type autobiography. Far more interesting than that.
There are many yarns spun in this engaging book, and Mr lamb does that to perfection. I can't praise it highly enough.
As a read it has something for everyone-adventure, drama and a smattering of showbiz!What more could you ask for.
Don't delay read it today

An interesting book, one that I would call a " holiday read". Nothing too demanding but better than most showbiz books in that it is about him and not just a list of famous people.

A very interesting read, written beautifully, and quite funny in places.

The book arrived just before specified date, no problem with seller, and would buy from there again.

Sadly this account of Larry Lambs life is really boring, I also feel that the treatment of his first child is so awful that it is difficult to believe any parent would be ok writing about such things knowing the daughter is likely to read it.
