3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant read, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Just Biggins: My Story (Kindle Edition)
I thought this a pleasant enough read - the sort of book you might take on holiday, or read when you have the flu. It's amusing and light-hearted, and Christopher Biggins comes across as a cheerful, warm bloke. But although life has clearly not always been easy for him, everybody he meets is marvellous, and all his friends are wonderful. A little more realism would have been welcome, and I get the feeling that if he had shown us a bit of his inner cattiness (and haven't we all got some?) it might have been a more interesting book.

Although you wrote this some time ago, I've only just seen it. Not being a fan of Mr Biggins I probably wouldn't have read this book anyway, and I can imagine him being a bit of a "lovey". I enjoyed the Kenneth Williams Diaries. Cattiness aplenty! Possibly too catty for some, but I found him a fascinating person. I must say I do like your reviews, Marigold!

Thank you very much, C Mac. The Kenneth Williams diaries are a favourite of mine, too. I'm a sucker for the cattiness, but there is also the evidence of a deeply disturbed personality, which I find genuinely upsetting, and the tragedy of his death - all that intelligence, humanity and wit lost to us. I do recommend the Giles Brandreth diaries; his writing seems to me to be very different from his public persona.
