The Good Life?

What did you like most about Pigs in Clover?

I enjoyed being part of their world without having to take the plunge myself. The warts and all approach of the author gives all of us practically challenged potential off gridders some hope!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pigs in Clover?

I loved the bit with the lamb in the hallway. I had to stop the car for safety reasons as I was laughing so much.

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

I enjoyed his bright style of delivery and his timing.

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

Any of the moments where the animals were struggling especially the moment with his horse Bobby

Any additional comments?

Just downloaded the next instalment so looking forward to getting back on the land.

Slow starter but worth it

Best narrator yet. No annoying cadence to deal with! Great story, not sure what the extensive innuendo added. Enjoyable all the same, very realistic.

Absolutely wonderful!

A marvellous heartwarming story, I just loved it. A fascinating insight into the trials and tribulations of small holding life. It’s also laugh out loud funny!
Fantastic narration too. Highly recommended.

A Wonderful Performance of a Great Book

Where does Pigs in Clover rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's definitely up near the top; a warm story, a great narrator

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pigs in Clover?

I think the sad ones stick with me as there's much hilarity that carries the whole way through but the lows are brought home and contrast against the constant happiness brought on by the author's relationship with the pigs.

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

I think that the narrator has a great talent for bringing the warmth and humour to life and really made the book for me.

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

The first time the pigs are taken off for slaughter; I definitely understood why but felt the tension in the decision
