批評家のレビュー

"A vivid, beautifully written and often moving book, skilfully dovetailing memoir, history, art and a cycling pilgrimage across Europe into a unique and uplifting whole. If you think you know who Timmy Mallett is, you’re in for a rewarding surprise!" (Professor Brian Cox)

"This is a journey brimming with love and laughter that's also deeply moving. Timmy's glass isn't just half full, it's positively overflowing!" (Lorraine Kelly)

"There aren't many people who would put themselves through this much to achieve their dream. Timmy has always aimed for the summit and, most importantly, remembers to smile and take time to reflect along the way." (Chris Evans)

あらすじ・解説

In this entertaining and surprisingly moving autobiography, Timmy shares his journey through TV stardom, cycling the Camino and his passion for art. 

In the spring of 2018, as the ‘Beast from the East’ hit northern Europe, Timmy needed every bit of his natural exuberance. He had undertaken to cycle 2,500 miles from his home to Santiago de Compostela in memory of his brother Martin, who was born with Down’s syndrome and had died just a few days earlier. This was a journey of exploration, honouring Martin’s outlook on life that everyone can reach their potential. And so, with his painting gear strapped to his bike, Timmy (an increasingly renowned artist) set off. He was blessed by letters of support from the Archbishop of York, the Bishops of Oxford and Winchester, the then Prime Minister Theresa May, Prince William and President Macron of France. 

Full of unexpected moments, Timmy’s account of his pilgrimage along a route travelled by so many over the centuries weaves together history and biography in a hugely entertaining manner. It is undergirded by a touching faith and conveys, beyond all else, how important it is to live every moment of every day.  

Featuring a Foreword by Michaela Strachan.

Pretty good

This was ok and sad about Timmys bubba. I love cycling adventures and this was good. Not a classic but quite an entertaining listen. I always wondered whatever happen to Timmy Mallett!

Brill

I chose this listen because I dream of planning my own pilgrimage one day so this book stood out.
I struggle to find time to read because I work long hours so listening to Timmy's journey whilst in the car I found myself leaving earlier for work and driving slower just so I could listen for longer.
I admire the determination and the mindset behind the challenge each day along with the insight behind the scenes of days gone by during Timmy’s career so far and all this topped with the true feeling and emotion when he talks about his brother and family near and far.
Really enjoyed and would recommend to everyone
Thank you Timmy

Utterly Brilliant !

Fantastic story interwoven with anecdotes from Timmys past TV adventures.

Timmy narrating the story himself is the icing on top of the cake!

Zest for life - really uplifting

What lovely and unexpectedly uplifting book! Timmy Mallet, famous for Wacaday and madcap antics on 80s telly, gives a great performance here with a touching, life affirming story thay artfully weaves his own biography in with his Camino pilgrimage made in memory of his late brother. I thoroughly enjoyed this and the overwhelming impression it leaves you with is what a lovely man Timmy must be. Highly recommended.

I'll genuinely miss this book

Over the last two months I've been aiming for 200 miles + on the Great North Run Solo Challenge and Timmy has been with me every step of the way - urging me on, telling me to reach my potential! This really is a great listen, a thought provoking journey shot through with interesting anecdotes that frequently raised a smile (folks I was running past smiling must have thought I was nuts!) Buy it, listen to it and I guarantee you'll enjoy it!

Simply Sensational

This is a lovely book it resonates warmth in every syllable read by the amazing Timmy. The colourfulness of his character shines through. A feel-good book with a heart of gold.

Great listen, thanks Timmy x

With Timmy narrating this book I felt I was accompanying him on his journey. Hearing his jovial voice was uplifting and enlightening, and certainly never dull. I enjoyed the historical stories en route and capers from his TV career made it all the more of an adventure. The only issue with the audible version is not being able to see his paintings, like you can with the book, but there's more on his website I believe.
