Sadly the sound quality at 32kbps is no better than dodgy internet sites out there - and given the price tag it is poor value for money. There is no way to transfer to an MP3 player and at three hours plus no track markings or index points - stick to the repeats on BBC 4 Extra where you can just love Peter Jones' wonderful creation in all his glory.
The audio presentation is scrappy (no gaps between the chapters, no titles for the chapters) but never mind, these are totally brilliant comic monologues. Writing, delivery--you will rarely hear anything this good.
I mostly knew Peter Jones as the narrator in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio shows, so I kind of got this one on a whim, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Well-written, well-read, and quite funny in spots - made me wish he'd written more, actually. Worth getting!
