Summary

You're never too old to have some fun . . . The little old lady is back! This time, Martha Andersson and her friends - the League of Pensioners - have left behind their dreary care home in Stockholm and are enjoying the bright lights of Las Vegas.

This is their opportunity for a new lease of life and they plan to make the most of it. But before long, they are up to their old tricks and with ingenious tactics, a pair of false teeth and a wheelchair each, they plot to outwit the security system at one of the casinos. As their antics become more and more daring, Martha and her friends head back to Sweden full of ideas for more money making schemes.

However, they aren't the only ones planning on stealing bucket loads of cash and soon find themselves pitted against a gang of dangerous criminals. Can the group of elderly friends work together to outsmart the younger robbers and get away with their biggest heist yet? Or will this job be a step too far for The League of Pensioners?

Quite enjoyable

the narration was good and clear, the plot was just far fetched enough to be amusing

Entertaining and lighthearted.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Martha, she was the leader.

What does Patience Tomlinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I enjoy listening while doing housework and gardening.

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

When Martha thinks about her dead child.

Not as good as I hoped.

The story is mildly entertaining due to the maturer generation getting one (or several) over the young but very fanciful and not believable when all but the main characters are portrayed as simpletons and idiots.
Unfortunately it also felt as if it had been written for a child with the dialogue and text appearing very basic.
I ploughed through to the end because I never like leaving a book unfinished.
This is not a patch on "The Hundred year Old Man..." Or "The Girl Who Saved The King Of England".

Another Brilliant Read

This second book in the series was as good as the first one. The robberies were so ingenious that I wonder if these were really carried out!! Lovely story about the older generation where I am in life right now. Loved that you are kept hanging on a thread to see if they get away with it all.

Not as good as book 1

I liked the first one in this series because of its originality, good characters and good humour. I didn't like this one as much - the plot is more fragmented, and the narration seems more screechy.
