David Blunkett's charming autobiography describes his remarkable rise from a blind, underprivileged child to a member of the British Shadow Cabinet. Stephen Thorne captures Blunkett's positive attitude by injecting upbeat humor and sarcasm into his descriptions of Blunkett's most difficult and embarrassing childhood and adult experiences. Thorne's zestful story telling appropriately describes an ambitious and compassionate politician focused on helping the downtrodden. Especially enjoyable are his depictions of Blunkett's early experiences in a boarding school for blind children, where sledding, baseball and bicycling were encouraged. Thorne's performance is as entertaining as Blunkett's climb to fame is remarkable. This is a winning combination of author and reader! B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
