Format: Audio CD
At the time of me writing this review, there has only been one other review of the audiobook for Keith Richards' "Life", and that reviewer complained that her version was read in German. Well my complaint is that my version was in read in American, rather than the dulcet tones of Dartford, Kent. Surely the whole point of choosing a reader for an autobiography is to get someone whose voice is as close the author's as possible, if they are unable to read the book themselves? Johnny Depp may look a bit like Keith Richards (in Pirates of The Caribbean at least - well he did nick the look) but he sounds nothing like him. Compounding this problem is the fact that Johnny loses interest after a couple of discs (having mispronounced all the place names, and lots of other words), and in steps Joe Hurley an American voice-over artist who chimes in with a brilliant impersonation of . . . Mick Jagger. Then, right at the death (Disc 19 or 20 - this is a very big listen) up pops Keith himself to do all the most moving bits at the end. This is great, but a stark reminder of what we've been missing through all the other discs. Keith's voice is warm and amused, and bears a slow, wheezy testimony to a hard-lived-life. Having said all that, the listener's enjoyment of an audiobook is all about two things - the production and the content, and despite the production being bananas (for the reasons listed above) the content is brilliant. Keith Richards' has a great story to tell, if only to remind us that Mick Jagger was only ever half of Jagger & Richards, and if Mick was handy for chipping in some suitable words when required, it was Keith who came up with all those riffs that live on today.Read more ›

I ordered this book for my brother who lives in a care home. When it arrived it was in German. Because he is not very able, he cannot return the book and I am in another country, so cannot help him. I am prepared to purchase this book again for him, but it has to be in English

Accidentally purchased the German version. Not good. I speak English. Read carefully before purchasing. I have purchased the audio book in English; and I am enjoying the narration.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 17 Dec. 2016
By J. Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Pretty much just drugs and more drugs. A little bit about his 5 string riffs from the late 60's but more drugs and drugs. I should have known better. This is one of the few books I returned to audible
