Listener Opinions

    " How can you not enjoy Spike Milligan? He represents a class of English/Irish man that is fast diminishing. This book is the perfect antidote to the harsh facts of war and show's exactly what got the every day men through it.. humour. What I love about Spike Milligan(and others of his ilk) is the irreverence, surrealism and the fact they highlight that, essentially, everything in life is ridiculous. All hope could be lost, only for the laughing. "

    " I have never laughed at a book the way I did this one. "

    " It has been so long since I laughed out aloud reading a book. Spike Milligan is hilarious. I kept my daughter awake for nights on end - we shared a bed while her dad was away. She asked me to read out what I was reading but didn't quite "get it". She is only 12 but my guess is that humour is different for everyone. I loved his one-liners, his suggestion to a friend that they form a band. When his friend points out there are only two of them his solution, "We'll sit a long way apart!" Just loved it. A genius. I must read more of his works now. Highly recommended. "

    " 2 reads 20 years apart. "

    " Hilarious book. I gave myself a stitch in the side sometimes. But my enjoyment was tainted by some racist undertones in the narrative . I was disappointed to discover that Milligan was actually well known to be a racist. But an enjoyable read nonetheless. "

    " Read them all are sooooo funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Hayes | 12/10/2013

    " Funny, Funny book well worth a read!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/7/2013

    " At age 13... I could not believe thatbooks were meant to be this good or this funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Siany | 10/24/2013

    " Another I completely forgot to add. Spike Milligan rocks and if you've never read any of his stuff this is probably the best place to start. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 10/1/2013

    " Brilliant funny a great book!! I am looking forward to reading the others in the series!!!!!!! "

    " I read this on a holiday and found myself laughing uncontrollably on a lounger. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fi | 12/18/2012

    " One of the few things I miss about my ex-husband is his collection of Spike Milligan books; read this one whilst I was pregnant & doing a good impression of a beached whale & it made me laugh to much I nearly went into early labour. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Batten-Hill | 9/7/2012

    " Spike's introductory book is fun and makes an engaging read. You can tell he's feeling his way but this naivety is quite charming. Memorable characters are introduced, which helps when the subsequent volumes are read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun Sullivan | 8/31/2012

    " war is a nonsense brought about by the rich to keep us plebs in our place whilst securing their hold over the "order" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 7/14/2011

    " Poignant and funny at the same time. A difficult trick to pull off. Second book in the series ordered immediately after I finished the book so I really enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee Flynn | 7/11/2010

    " Some laugh out loud moments from a man the likes we wont see again. Recommended! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete Aldin | 1/23/2010

    " Sad, funny, haunting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susie King | 7/8/2009

    " Excellent - funny "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rubaiat | 5/23/2008

    " Off to a hilarious start! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter Millett | 8/25/2007

    " Classic Spike. Not for all readers though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colin | 8/18/2007

    " A very funny book, and how did we ever win, going by that reference of life in the Army. Spikes back chat to his superiors must have got him into more trouble than that surly. If I got my bearings right the school in Turkey Road, where he was stationed at is now a housing estate. "
