Always Unreliable: Memoirs
Format: Kindle Edition|Change

VINE VOICEon 18 August 2008
I didn't grow up with Clive James. I was vaguely aware of him from the telly, but nothing more than that. And his life has not been that exciting - childhood in Australia before moving to England. Not, on the face of it, much cause for me to read this book (a collection of his assorted volumes of "unreliable memoirs")

But these memories are wonderful, and the telling even more so. Funny, touching, heartfelt and, more than anything, hugely readable and entertaining. Not a demanding book, but a very enjoyable one. Really, really good; highly recommended.

This is simply a combination of Clive James' autobiographical trilogy and seeing they are all worth buying then this is a fantastic bargain. One suggestion, start by reading the second book first, Falling Towards England, then read the first book and then the last one. The reason for this is that the second book is the best, just by a little, and its gets you into his style. If you are going on holiday or want a good long read that will eagerly beaver through.

I have previously read this book in paperback form and decided to buy it for my Kindle.
Still makes me laugh a third time of reading.
Don't miss this one!

The 3 first of his volumes of his biography, beautifully written, inteligent, funny, self depricating. In fact well worth the investment of time and effort; totaly rewarding .

One of the funniest men in the World, this collection by the great man is not to be missed. This copy had seen better days, and the description of the condition was a little bit of fiction in its own right.

Wonderful writing. Re-reading these memoirs and even better the second time around. He has a wonderful command of the language.
