Chambers

The duplicity back stabbing, obsequious, nature of the over the top Chambers. Shows our legal staff at its funniest. All human nature is laid bare in this man / Woman eating legal chambers firm. it shows the workings of a hapless bunch of the legal world trying to be the best at what they do. extremely well written and performed by the cast. Another classic Comedy series at its best and is a must. let's hope more episodes are transferred to Audible.

A nice little surprise

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hilary was wonderful. In such a short programme I was surprised at how much of his character he got across.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

They were all excellent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's very short so that's easily done. I walk home from work to avoid the gym. It's a 2hr commute so audiobooks are my sanity saver.

Any additional comments?

As a result of this one I'm off to investigate more of the series. Its something I'd be happy to listen to more of.

British Comedy at its Best

I love this show. Bird always makes me laugh and James Fleet and the other characters are great . I admire good comedy writers and Clive Coleman has created great story lines. No matter how often I listen still find it so entertaining!
