Voracious reader; lover of stories - happy endings preferred, living in a house that resembles a library. I may have a problem....
Yes, because hearing the very 'British' tones help set the scene.
The very funny and brilliantly descriptive writing.
The very good way he managed to deal with understatement and bewilderment in the characters.
I laughed - a lot.
This story was 'right up my street,' and reminded me of the humour prevalent in the 1960s when we had such droll comics as Tony Hancock.
The narration was too fast with not enough differentiation between voices. I felt like it was racing and I just couldn't follow.
