A great study guide - or short summary of the book
I think this audio book has wonderfully achieved what it set out to do. The dramatisation was particularly enjoyable.

I know that part of the world... and I know this one too. I found the book amusing and very original. A great companion on my car journeys. It was also pleasant to listen to, my ears loved the narrator's voice and I enjoyed the accents.
It took me a while to get into this book - until about half of it, I wasn't sure, but I couldn't stop listening either. From its half to the end, I was hooked. It coincided with a change in the main character's life... so the reason why I didn't get hooked earlier might just have been the fact that I was suffering with her.
Also took a while to get used to the voice and accent - aspects I'm very receptive and sensitive to - but I found in the end that all fitted well together.
