Extraordinary book, annoying narration

I have found John Sessions’ narration a major impediment to enjoying the Enderby books. In this installment, the narration improves somewhat towards the end, but in general, he charicatures the characters and sneers through every poem he reads. This is such a contrast to the way that Burgess narrated “A Clockwork Orange”. I feel that if the producers of the Enderby books had listened to the author read his own work, they might have made a better choice for narrator. It’s a real shame, because the Enderby books are hidden gems.

More Enderby

Well, if you liked Inside Enderby you will likely like Enderby Outside (just a little less so).
This continues the character, oddity, humor, and tenderness of the original reminiscent of Confederacy of Dunces.

My favorite of the series is the last book, Dark Lady, then Inside, then Outside, the Testament.
While this is not my favorite of the series, I still enjoyed it a lot.

The narration is occasionally over the top with some characters, but generally I found the characterization unusual but good.
