Summary

For a young Mike Pannett, growing up in North Yorkshire in the late 1960s and early '70s was a dream come true. They really were the good old days. The summer holidays lasted forever and the sun always seemed to shine. Given a fishing rod, a bottle of pop and a jam sandwich, a lad could wander as far as his bike would take him, and the countryside was one big adventure playground. Like many a boy, however, Mike learns things the hard way. A bike ride lands him in the hospital and a fishing trip almost ends with a shipwreck. Mike’s a likely lad and these are his tales.

Dreadful narration!

Really looked forward to listening to this as it was set around an area I know well. I couldn't get past the first chapter it was like listening to an eight year old reading a school book. Pauses in the middle of sentences and a toneless voice with no enthusiasm for the story at all. Dreadful.
