Summary

The record-breaking, best-selling sequel to Spud! It's 1991, and John "Spud" Milton's journey to manhood is still creeping along at a snail's pace. Nearly 15, Spud's starting his second year at boarding school and - to his utter mortification - he's still a spud!
To make things worse, his dorm mates, the legendary Crazy Eight, have an unusual new member (Roger the cat), and his house is home to a new batch of unruly first years. Spud is soon plagued with women trouble, coerced into expulsion-worthy adventures, and frustrated to find his dreams of fame in tatters after landing the part of the Dove of Peace in a disastrous production of Noah's Ark.
Join Spud as he takes another tentative step forward while all around him the madness continues....

Spud three

I think it was great and an easy way to get spud on the go
I think the guy was presented brilliantly but spud sounded like a middle aged farmer

Narrator is an idiot

What possessed Maxwell Caulfield to give John "Spud" Milton, an English boy from Durban, the accent of a boertjie farmer from the platteland? It's like giving Tom Sawyer a scots accent! Did they not listen to the audio book of the first book, "Spud"? Do the producers of South African novels do no research whatsoever?



It's amazing how a bad accent can ruin a perfectly good story.

Dissappointing narrator

Would you try another book from John van de Ruit and/or Maxwell Caulfield?

Definitely a John van de Ruit but noit Maxwell Caulfield. After listening to Spud 1, narrated by the author himself, this was a real disappointment. Sorry.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maxwell Caulfield?

John van der Ruit himself.

Great story, poor narration

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maxwell Caulfield?

John van de Ruit himself!

Any additional comments?

A great story, as are all the Spud stories, but Maxwell Caulfield totally overdid the South African accent without bothering to check the pronunciation of unfamiliar (to him) local names - Transkei is NOT pronounced as "trans key", nor is Mooi River pronounced "mooey river" and there are many other examples. Mental note: in future read the reviews BEFORE you buy the book!
