It is not clear if the words have changed more than the three times referenced, and evidence for further changes is being sought. There appears to be no clear account of when the main extension to the church listed as above actually took place. This is remarkable as it is such a notable change in the Parish history. Peter's Seel Street " by an author who clearly has access to the Parish Records:. A film with Katherine Hepburn is important to Brian, but it slows the pace of the book down. You get the feeling that this is less of a linear biography, but cherry picking tales from his life.
There is at least another volume in Blessed yet and it would have been nice to have some of the gaps filled in this outing. The pace lags at times, but overall the book is fast paced and not too long. Nov 07, Andrew Garvey rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Early on in this raucously time-hopping collection of anecdotes loosely arranged as a story told by a master storyteller, Blessed makes an odd and entirely pointless request when asking the reader to imagine the story as told in Blessed's own, booming voice.

As an introduction to his life, it seems to cover the main bits - his poor-but-decent upbringing, his struggle to care about school until encountering inspiring teaching, his training as an undertaker's apprentice, his early acting experiences, becoming a national celebrity in 'Z Cars', his courtship and marriage, his close friendship with Katherine Hepburn, starring in 'Flash Gordon' which included a lot of kicking dwarfs up the arse, apparently and, ever since, yelling 'GORDON'S ALIVE!
Along the way, he yells at a lot of people. Some of it in a good-natured way his sweary run-ins with Flash Gordon producer Dino de Laurentis and a few of his slanging matches with Peter O' Toole and some of it when falling out with O' Toole, chinning Harold Pinter or bullying Oliver Reed into not being a tit to everyone every time he has a drink , in not quite such a friendly way. Throughout the book, Blessed almost always as an adult at least comes across as likeable, decent and honest when not telling whopping great lies and really, more or less exactly what you'd expect him to be like after seeing him on television for more than about ten seconds.
How true any of it is, is irrelevant, really. It's impossible to check on much of it and, aside from a few meanderings that lurch off into 'total-spiritual-bollocks' territory, it's all believable enough and told with such shouty, sweary enthusiasm that it's seemingly impossible not to enjoy immensely. Nov 20, Chris rated it it was amazing. Bloody best audiobook ever.
I still want to know more about his Russian cosmonaut training, and his trip to the magnetic North Pole.

I will be forever ruined for them, having now experienced the full Brian Blessed. May 19, Emily rated it it was amazing. I listened to this on Audible, read by our Brian, of course. It was a joy to listen to. It was part autobiography, part memoir, part anecdotes and name dropping. The best chapter was the final chapter based on Brian's experiences of death, not of himself, of course, but of him coming into contact with death.
The was an anecdote that involved a headless corpse and a poor, female accountant.
I couldn't help but laugh alo I listened to this on Audible, read by our Brian, of course. I couldn't help but laugh aloud, but for those involved, I am sure it wasn't so funny at the time. The book is also an important read for those interested in a career in acting. There's a lot of behind the scenes detail that helps give a better picture of how movies, TV and the theatre work.
Anyway, it's an enjoyable read. And don't forget, as Brian always has to say, "Gordon's alive!!! Apr 21, William rated it it was amazing Shelves: biography , non-fiction. A truly Blessed life.

Brian Blessed is a very entertaining man who has lived a life, and then some. I took his advice and imagined him reading the book to me which brought the stories to life and there were several bits that really made me LOL as the kids say. I loved the fact the Brian is clearly a larger than life, kind, funny and generally optimistic person and his anecdotes were funny and entertaining.

However after a while he started to sound a bit big headed - apparently pretty much everyone he has ever met just loved him. I found it a bit odd that there was absolutely no mention of his first wife and daughter but who knows, he no doubt has his reasons, but it did feel like a glaring omission. May 03, Robert Sutherland rated it it was amazing. Brian Blessed is a salty raconteur.
He tells amazing stories with a powerful joie de vivre. I knew him from Flash Gordon as a child. I didn't know about his BBC television stardom or his other movie exploits. Then there is a tender, loving, almost doting relationship with his wife, Hildegard.

He tells so many rich anecdotes, from mountain climbing, to boxing, to officiating the handover of Hong Kong from Britain to China that you think a life could not possibly be this full.
But his is, and the telling of it is a wonderful experience that will have you alternating between smiles, chuckles, and laughing out loud.
