I ADORE RICHARD HAMMOND!!!!!! Just thought id get that in first, sorry for the outburst, hehe, and I have been a massive fan of his for years, ever since he started on current format Top Gear back in 2002! (Top Gear is MY FAVE SHOW of ALL TIME! The current format that is, thought id put that in too, lol!)
This autobiography is a window into the life of a very interesting and astonishing guy!
I must say also that Mindy's writing in this book is great! Good on u Girl!
Im not ashamed to say that I had tears in my eyes for most of the way through, which is not good for reading properly I know, lol, but that is the emotion that comes from when u read this book! It is a very emotional read, esp for the fans of Richard and for people who know him for more than just 'the guy who had that crash'.
I have to say, not all the tears were sad ones, I thought the part at the beginning where Richard is describing his feelings about the Top Gear job was so sweet! I cant imagine any other 3 people presenting TG!
The pictures are FAB! Some made me laugh, what did he look like back then!! and Richie as a child, how cute! It is very touching reading about this past and childhood, what he used to be like, the tales, the adventues! I hope there will be more stories and tales to come from this remarkable man! Long may he reign!
