I vaguely remembered reading and enjoying this book a while ago, so thought it would be worth downloading as an audiobook. Am glad I did! It's a most original story using a fantastic premise,to explore very human problems and is told with humour and warmth. And the narrator does it full justice. I thoroughly recommend.
