Description

The hilarious and heartwarming account of Miranda and her life changing dog, the inimitable and most lovable Peggy.

Hello dear audiobook browser and welcome to Peggy and Me. The story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise - fun) in the form of Peggy.

Some of you may be thinking: 'a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I'm sold. In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day.

Others of you may be thinking: 'a book about a dog, how totally mad, she must have officially lost it.' In which case I completely understand. For I once viewed dog owners with much suspicion. The way they obsessively talk about their dogs often using voices for them to reply; the way they have a light covering of dog hair all over their clothes and sofas; and worse, an alarming comfort and ease around excrement.

But I now get why people become so mad about their hounds. It wasn't instant love I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy - there was a lot of challenging, what I call, dog administration (dog-min), and the humiliating first trip to the vet still haunts me. It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life changing moments and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.

Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me....

Not A Comedy

I was looking for a light and funny book. I love Miranda's comedy and was hoping for a book along that line. No such luck. I am two hours in and so far we have explored a disastrous burglary, childhood disappointments and pet death upsets and a long detailed discussion of elephant abuse in Thailand. This list just names a few of the unhappy topics covered. Really not funny at all. Wish I could have not heard about the elephants.

What was equally troubling was the narration. Hart speaks very quickly and softly--which at times was hard to understand. Even worse, during the reading there was a dog barking in the background. This was a distant barking that kept me thinking that one of my dogs was in trouble somewhere. Distracting and odd.

I can't continue with this listen as I am not sure what distressing thing will come up next and I can't stand all the barking. Giving up.

Heartwarming and such fun

Discovered Miranda Hart as Chummy in Call the Midwife and became interested in her as a comedian. She narrates this audiobook both as herself and as Peggy, her diva of a dog. There are some laugh-out-loud moments as well as genuine bits of wisdom.

Heartwarming and funny

I am a big fan of Miranda Hart and this book was just the pick me up I needed. Read by the fabulous Miranda herself.

An Adorable Exploration of Life With a Pet

What I Liked: Miranda remains as clever as ever in her writing and this book remains to be a great little sharing of her life. The story of how the original manuscript for this book had been lost when her apartment was burgled was a little heartbreaking and I can't imagine trying to recover from that loss. But the resulting book is a testament to her commitment to telling this story of her and Peggy.

It's hard to say how this book might be received by non-dog lovers as Peggy does quickly become the focus of the narrative. This is a good and a bad thing of course depending on how you look at it, but I do feel like Miranda's efforts to convey her love for Peggy is certainly infectious enough to get anyone to consider owning a dog or at the very least feeling the need to play with one after finishing this title.

What Could Have Been Better: Somewhat similar to the last book, if you expect this biography to focus more on her life as a comedian and entertainer then you'll be significantly disappointed. This doesn't make the book bad, but having the right expectations is rather important and getting the wrong idea about what this is can sour your impression of the book.

At the same time, Miranda speaking as Peggy in this audio book can be something that is terribly endearing or oddly annoying. I enjoyed it, but I can totally get how it may not be everyone's cup of tea. If you weren't too impressed with Miranda speaking as a younger version of herself in the last book then I doubt her Peggy personification will do that much better.

Love Miranda!

I am a true Miranda Hart fan; so I may have a biased perspective on the book. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with an "old friend" as I listened to the story being read by Miranda.

A lovely listen! Thank you, Miranda!

I'd like to listen yo this again and again; it's lovely. I had the thought that I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting a dog. It illustrates the highs and the lows one can go through.

a true feel good story

I adore this book! Being a long time fan of Miranda, I knew I'd enjoy it but I was shocked at how charming and lovely this book was. When it ended I was tempted to hit the play button again and start over. Here's to hoping Peggy lives forever! ❤️

Very dull

I really wanted to enjoy this book because I love Miranda. I found it a very dull read and quite frankly too many "pooh" stories.

Delightful!

I have the actual hand held book as well! I love reading along with Miranda, letting Miranda lull me to sleep at night enabling me to wake after a lovely night's sleep. Miranda's ability to read with different voice and expression as only she can do is nothing short of painting a picture moreover her written word. Being able to be read to by Miranda herself is like being read to by My Dear Reader Chum summoned up at any whim! What other friend would do as much? "Kristie, will you read for me?" She says no every time. MDRC-every time, she says yes.

Grossartig und herzerwärmend

Miranda Hart erzählt von ihrem Leben als "Frauchen" ihrer Hündin Peggy. Sie erzählt Situationen und Episoden aus ihrem gemeinsamen Leben, wobei aber auch fast schon philosophische und "Gott-und-die-Welt"-Gedanken nicht zu kurz kommen. Das Buch enthält herzerwärmende, fast schon rührende Teile und ist dabei immer unterhaltsam, kurzweilig und oft auch einfach zum laut Herauslachen lustig.
Einer meiner absoluten Lieblinge als Hörbücher dieses Genres und total empfehlenswert!

Warm and funny, well written and read

Thank you Miranda Hart, this Book made me smile and chuckle so many times. It is not highbrow, it is not intellectual, but it does not pretend to be that, it is just a good laugh.
