あらすじ・解説

In 1974 the brilliant and controversial Brian Clough made perhaps his most eccentric decision: he accepted the Leeds United Manager's job. As successor to Don Revie, his bitter adversary, he was to last 44 days. David Peace takes us into the mind and thoughts of Ol' Big 'Ead himself and brings vividly to life one of postwar Britain's most complex and fascinating characters.

Good book but intense

The way the parallel stories in this book were weaved together was masterful. The story was; intensely paced as well.

What a Different Story

Rubbish!

What would have made The Damned Utd better?

Not jumping all over the place timeline-wise. Story line was rather hard to follow.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Simm?

Narrator was good. I just hated the book itself.

Any additional comments?

Clough was an embittered, whiny bitch. The whole time he cusses and yells at the people around him, and constantly tells us his hatred for Don Revis. I got sick of it and couldn't finish this piece of crap book. If I owned the physical copy I would go burn it in a dumpster right now.

Awesome marraige of speaker and story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Loved the telling of the tale, the prose (much of it purple), the narrators compelling interpretation and the underlying premise of the book - one of my favorite audible purchases

A wonderful story along with a great narrator

What made the experience of listening to The Damned Utd the most enjoyable?

Having read half of the book previously and watching (and enjoying) the film I was looking forward to listening to the abridged version of the book on a long drive from Vancouver to Portland. The story is well digested in it's 4-5 hour timeline and it flows incredibly well. This is no small part due to John Simm who reads the story incredibly well. His accents and narration are well done but neutral enough to not enter the comedic arena that lesser actors could take them too. He reads with passion and enthusiasm and I believe his part of this audiobook promotes it way higher than it might have otherwise.

I really enjoyed it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Simm's portrayal of Clough is excellent.

What about John Simm’s performance did you like?

Simm did a really good job. He's added enthusiasm when needed and really made me feel the emotion

Brilliant- totally absorbing

What does John Simm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

John Simm brings us into the mind and world of Brian Clough. His reading really brings out the rhythm of the prose and the lacerating judgements Clough makes on his world. It's made me wonder if Clough really was like this or if it's David Peace's invention. Brilliant. I couldn't put it down.

Not a sports fan

I saw the reviews, it is good to read something different, and so I plunged into a beautifully written battle for adoration, power and prestige. Excellent portraits of men in a mans world.

Not unabridged.

Brilliantly performed but if one is following the text he will get lost often. Much of the writing is jumped, skipped, elided. If I were Peace I would be fit to be tied.
But again, beautifully performed, and of course the book is marvelous.

Well read and interesting story from a long gone age. would have liked it to make reference to the subsequent success to round out the overall impression.

So good but why was it abridged?!?

John Simm gives a brilliant narration of a savage, funny and well observed black comedy based on real events.

Why not five stars? Because some clown decided to abridge it. It's David Peace's most accessible novel, it's not very long by modern novel standards. So next time - give us the complete version please.
