Dear Me, CD-Audio
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Sir Peter Ustinov's beautifully crafted autobiography is told with exquisite wit and insight.

From his birth in April 1921, it spans his extraordinary career as actor, playwright, film star and director, confirming his early belief that he is 'irrevocably betrothed to laughter'.

Ustinov's renowned gift for mimicry is exploited to the full in "Dear Me".

Eccentric relatives, school masters, sergeant majors and manic Hollywood moguls are all brought unforgettably to life.

Review by

Depends on your sense of humour.I listened to an abridged version of this book and couldn't get through the first CD (1 star from me). Fortunately for Mr Ustinov, my husband put it in his car and absolutely loved it (5 stars from him), so the book gets 3 stars on average.I found his 'hilarious' anecdotes tedious and rambling, my husband, on the other hand, though he was hugely amusing and, knowing many of the famous people who he name drops, was immediately drawn in.My husband has a typically male sense of humour, puns and word games, my sense of humour is more demanding, more subtle. Which group do you fall into??
