For Gervase Phinn growing old is not about a leisurely walk to the pub for a game of dominoes or snoozing in his favourite armchair. As this sparkling collection of his very best humorous writing shows, he may be ‘out of the woods’ but he is certainly not ‘over the hill’.

If you could sum up Out of the Woods but not Over the Hill in three words, what would they be?

Witty, fun, intresting

What did you like best about this story?

I loved listening to this book. After reading other of Gervase's books this book gives you an insight into where he got many of his ideas for settings , characters and story lines.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed Gervase's ramblings about the English language. They were fascinating and written in such a way that they also humorous

Any additional comments?

Although I enjoyed this book, if you have read his other books, you do find yourself covering the same material that he has written before.
