4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful memories, 10 Oct. 2006
This review is from: And It's Goodnight From Him: The Autobiography of the Two Ronnies (Hardcover)
You can't be in your thirties and above and not have a special place for the Two Ronnies in your heart. This is a perfect book for a trip down memory lane and some fascinating insights in to the process that went in to making the show, and how it fitted in to the rest of the two stars' lives.

The book is frequently very funny with some key scripts given in full, and Corbett manages to slip in a few typical meandering stories. It helps that you can't read it without hearing his distinctive Scottish voice.

If I had a criticism it would be that there is the occasional use of a bad pun here and there, and it could have done with some tighter editing as some of the sentences are a bit clumsy (not unlike this one!) It's not particularly deep and could be seen as just a sequence of anecdotes, but I don't think the hard-hitting psychoanalysis is required here - look elsewhere if you want that.

I read this in the space of a couple of 90-minute train journeys. It's a magnificent way of remembering a great double act and a fitting tribute to Ronnie Barker, a much-missed comic actor.
