I thought this worked great as an audiobook.
Like a previous reviewer I was a little ashamed at not having read the book- I've bought a copy since- simply because I came across it very cheap in Oxfam- and I was surprised how much denser it looked on the page- so that's an achievement- to make a dense book easy audio.
It wouldn't have worked nearly so well without Germaine Greer reading it herself- it was great to have a narrator that had a complete understanding of the text and an authorial authority over it, adding a (very occassional) footnote and, once, a rather telling 'Huh!'
Audible ought to now engage her to narrate a few Barbara Cartland romances- her reading of extracts from Cartland and Georgette Hayer were screamingly funny.
I have loved this book and the one that follows. Funny, honest, account of the struggles to adapt to a very different life. I loved his different accents and his bit and pieces of French language. I will play it again and again.
