A 'perfick' joy
It captured my interest from the very first page, and the story got better the more I read.
O loved all of the characters, but my favourites were Ma and Pa Larkin.
There were several scenes in this book which made me laugh. Some of the funniest scenes for me are the ones between Pop and Cedric (Charlie).
I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. The story is well written, entertaining and very uplifting. Philip Franks' excellent narration also added to my enjoyment of H.E. Bates classic novel.
