Her warm personality and bubbly nature made for an easy and relaxed conversation and before long our chat was in full swing. Emma is a lady with an endless number of professional hats to wear; broadcaster, writer, actress and comedian, to name just a few. I asked her which title she preferred. With so much on the go, I wondered how Emma juggles it all.
And does she ever say enough is enough? But take my website, for example. I used to write a very successful blog every day but I had to give up on it a couple of years ago. What with writing the books, it was simply eating too much into my time. My rule was I wrote it every morning and I never spent more than half an hour on it. Was she always the one to crack a joke and make the others laugh? I used to be in the school plays and when I was in university I was in the Oxford review. I was always involved in comedy but it never crossed my mind that I could do it as an actual job.
Nobody in my family has a history of being in the media or in the performing arts. You can get on telly now without any talent whatsoever. I used to even be a lawyer — I had a secretary called Madge! And I was a pretty good one too. I was a litigator so I took people to court and I did my actual job well.

To be honest, I think people should be dissuaded from suing others — especially in matrimonial cases. They say they want to make sure the kids are alright but they should be sitting down in a room and sorting it out! I genuinely used to forget to charge people too! Em… a lawyer who forgot to charge?

I wonder what Madge thought about that! Emma comes across as super confident and nothing seems to faze her. I wondered if she ever gets nervous before a performance. I wondered which type of book does she prefer to write.
However, despite it starting off well, the remembered conversations between Emma and Dee become very irritating and the story becomes in the second half of the book very frustrating and just annoying. The performance of the book is not as good as the first one either, it is over the top.
I didn't enjoy this book half as much as I did the tent, the bucket and me. As another reviewer mentioned, the constant change of volume was irritating and nearly made me give up listening to it.
One minute her voice is so low you can barely hear it, the next it is booming in an over the top dramatic style. Utterly wonderful. Moving, hilarious, and exciting. A wonderful book.

Sort by:. Most Helpful Most Recent. Lisa Mack As delightful as her last She had me howling with laughter, as well as cringing in sympathy with their misadventures. Leah Can you say blind adventure? Helen Philip Less camping but still fun Went straight on to this having with all the family listening in the car on the way to France! Dave I sure hope another adventure happens. I need the next story! I'm amazed at how this girl camped during her childhood, and took those life lessons with her on her trip and improvised wherever necessary.
A very entertaining story as always from Emma but volumes made it difficult to listen to at times. Sometimes unbearably blaring and virtually inaudible in places. Went straight on to this having with all the family listening in the car on the way to France! It's no match but still great fun at the expense of Emma's gap year suffering and made me move on quickly to her first novel. The book is consistently funny and Emma Kennedy is a great storyteller as she relates her adventures across America.
I Left my Tent in San Francisco by Emma Kennedy (Ebury Press, £11.99)
Bad luck seems to follow her and her friend like a curse but even so they battle through with an unflagging joy and optimism that is actually inspiring. I listened to this as a fan of Emma Kennedy rather than any real interest in travelogues. Personally I prefer this one, though others might disagree and do looking at other reviews. Each to their own. Which scene did you most enjoy? Hard to narrow it down. She tells a series of funny and touching anecdotes. Her personality shines throughout, which is complemented well by having her narrate.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? I probably could have done given the chance. As it was I finished it in less than a week which is pretty fast for me. This is quite simply a beautiful piece of writing; funny, warm and hugely enjoyable- highly recommended! Incapacitatinly funny I love to listen to audio books when I'm cleaning the time goes quicker.
I got nothing done ,instead of hovering the stairs i sat there in histericks. Fantastic please let there be another.
