Description

The secret history of David Hasselhoff and the fall of the Berlin Wall - as told by the Hoff himself.

Autumn, 1989. The waning days of the Cold War. A rogue Stasi colonel has acquired a nuclear bomb and threatens to level Berlin if and when the Wall comes down. CIA Agent Nick Harper is called in to foil the plot. Soon after arriving, however, Harper discovers his identity has been compromised. To stay alive, he must go along with a group of passionate young East Berliners who mistake him for their idol, American superstar David Hasselhoff.  

Meanwhile, across the Wall, the real David Hasselhoff arrives in West Berlin to play a sold-out show before a hundred thousand adoring German fans, in the name of freedom. But upon crossing into the East as a tourist, Hasselhoff - who bears a striking resemblance to the US operative - unwittingly finds himself caught up in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse. 

When the Hoff fails to show up for his concert, Agent Harper is forced to stand in for his famous doppelgänger while the real Hasselhoff must rely on his acting chops and Knight Rider training to save Berlin...and potentially the world.

about as expected

super cheesy but that's the Hoff. I laughed out loud several times because of the cheese level.

I was wrong.

when I picked this book, I knew I would return it, barely read, for credit. I knew Hasslehoff was an egomaniacal, C-list celebrity, at best, who must love the sound of his own voice SO MUCH that he wrote an audio book just to record it. I knew I would be laughing AT him, for the brief amount of time I listened.

I was wrong.

Sure, the first hour was a bore, but the set up for the rest of the listen was...perfect. Before I knew it, I was four chapters deep, and so entertained and engaged, it was hard to stop listening.

I found myself caring and concerned for each character, laughing out loud at "The Hoff" as he engaged in comedically false egotisms, and crying in laughter at how clever he was in the whole concept.

And now, my fantasy dinner list of people, living or dead, to break bread with, has a name on it I never imagined. David Hasslehoff.
End of story.

Hofftastic!

David Hasselhoff does it again! Add fiction author to his credits, that already include singer, actor, writer, director, and producer. All around fantastic entertainer! This book will have you painting a picture of the characters and becoming attached to them from the very beginning. The book flies by, as if you're caught up in a movie. Great writing, and GREAT presentation by David! Hope to hear more from him soon.

AWESOME!!! Where do we go next?

I have loved David's performances since the FIRST episode of Knight Rider. I was a great fan of Knight Rider; not so much for Babe Watch but it did have it's moments and did not even realize he had other talents...but I do now. I was intrigued by this Audible; mostly because he was the author and the narrator...so I added to my library. I don't really listen that much during any given week...but I listened to this book..a LOT... It sometimes takes me years to finish books more than an hour or too...and I have a tendency to switch between several. This book was an exception...I listened to this frequently..along with my audible Dr Who by Tom Baker (and narrated by Tom)… I finished this in record time; for me anyway... I loved this book. The ties to his real life; the action; the suspense; the romance; the storyline; the intrigue; the sometimes cheesiness; and of the Hoff...all were superb...but I think the best thing was the way David read this...I began to recognize who was speaking by the voice that he used...I love it when the narrators do that... I can project when I read for an audience but trying to do different voices....I would fall flat on my face... David does an excellent job of drawing you into the story thru his narration... can I give 10 stars???? grin.... Just one question.... David, when are you releasing your next in this series? ...was it in Dubai????? thanx David for a great story and a great read.

Am I the Only One.....

Am I the only one that thought he sounded drunk. A lot of slurring of words. It was painful to listen to. I gave up and had to return it.

Entertainment value off the charts!!!

The story, the narration, I mean it is David Hasselhoff, and he gives the listener great entertainment value.
Is this a serious listen, no, but I did not expect it to be. It was fun, funny, tongue in cheek, cheeky. I was not in this listen for the literary greatness, but the entertainment value was off the charts. Light, silly, predictable, make ya laugh entertainment.
Come on the star of Baywatch, Knight Rider, and singer of Freedom, what is not to like? Creating diversion along the way by making fun of himself and the James Bond genre. Smart man. Worked for me and with the quasi cliffhanger teaser I would purchase the next installment.

Unbelievable and Cheesy

Hearing David Hasselhoff read his own book sounded like a good idea, but it’s apparent that the book is basically far-fetched narcissist fiction. DH is the ultimate hero and the entire story resolves because he’s amazing and popular. It was a struggle to finish but I wanted to make sure I was giving it a fair chance. I will not read this again.

Was fun to listen to

David H as the narrator was pretty good. In a way I think he is poking fun at himself and his career which makes it kind of a fun read.

A highly entertaining spy action adventure

This is a really good audiobook. It surpassed all of my expectations. First off, Hassehoff is a fantastic narrator! He is excellent at pacing, women's and men's voices, and enunciation. His enthusiasm and sense of humor shines through during the entire audiobook.

The story is excellent, and it is such a great idea for a book. There is a little bit of cheesy dialogue, but is rather realistic for an actor caught up in espionage. I am no Cold War expert, but the descriptions of East Berlin seem very realistic. Overall, this is like a great action movie with a dash of humor. It was just the right length and the plot was surprisingly meaty. I enjoyed it as much as Die Hard and Skyfall, and it was much better than the Mission Impossible movies, in my opinion. It was truly action-packed, with a bunch of violence and killing. The violence was just right, similar to the "Die Hard" movie, not over the top like a Tarantino movie. There was a minimum of cursing and sexual situations, which worked out well. If you want a fun action adventure, try this one!

Echtes MUSS für David Hasselhoff Fans

Man merkt, wie sich Hasselhoff bemüht sehr deutlich zu sprechen. Vermutlich, damit ihn die Deutschen Fans auch gut verstehen :-). Teilweise liest er jedoch auch etwas "verwaschen", wie ein älterer Mann halt oft spricht. Witzige Story. Keine "neue" Erfindung. Hat man in vielen Kirmis schon gehört/gesehen, macht aber trotzdem Spaß beim Anhören und es kommt doch die eine odere andere Wendung,
Klare Empfehlung - nicht nur für Hasselhoff-Fans!

Grandios

Ich habe mich selten auf dem stauverwöhnten Weg zur Arbeit so amüsiert? Die Szenen, in denen er seine Fahrten mit dem Trabant beschreibt sind echt so witzig. Für einen ehemaligen DDR Bürger wie mich eine wundervolle, kurzweilige Geschichte. Im Originalton von D. Hasselhoff sehr empfehlenswert. Er spricht die unterschiedlichen Charakters einfühlsam und deutlich. Man kann das Englisch gut verstehen. Wenn er deutsche Worte spricht - einfach wunderbar -. Selbstironisch und einfach mega unterhaltsam. Wenn man mit der Geschichte der DDR emotional verbunden ist.... ein Muß.

The Voice is oil

I'm just listening, this audiobook and the voice of the speaker goes down like oil. It sounds good to you and you can calmly translate the story in your head because of the slow speech. So English does not go out of style and it is used again and again ... please more of this speaker! It is very reassuring, even my children learn English.
When the Berlin Wall came down, I was still very small and could never imagine anything below, when my grandparents told me something, but the older you got, the more you could understand. Very good!
