I don’t know the author, other than via social media, but I was highly delighted to be gifted an audiobook copy of ‘The Hole Opportunity’ by the very ..Show More »generous James Mintner after an exchange on Goodreads. I don’t usually listen to audiobooks as I have little opportunity to do so but I thoroughly enjoyed the next couple of weeks of dog walks when I took ‘The Hole Opportunity’ with me.This is a book from a genre I would not usually choose but it just goes to show that you should always keep an open mind. It is a very British farce based on the genius idea of a farmer, Colin Griggs and his wife Izzy, wanting to diversify and subsequently coming up with the ‘hole’ business. It is far-fetched, obviously, this is a work of farce after all but it is carried off throughout with great ease and enthusiasm. The fully rounded characterisations are solid and stereotypical - just as they should be in this sort of story - you could picture each and every one brilliantly. This is a fun, light hearted book to read or listen to filled with misunderstandings and entertaining situations that involve the whole village, golf club, nearby country house, pub, bank...amongst others and a cast of ‘mostly’ likeable characters.
