What did you love best about The Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow?
This is classic British humor. As the story was written written in 1886 I never imagined it would appeal to my modern sense of humor. I was wrong. Any fan of Monty Python, Dilbert or The Far Side will find themselves rolling on the ground laughing. I have been surprised by the interest from my 8 year old son. He makes a point of taking this audio book to bed with him. I dont have to worry about foul language that soils modern commedians, Jerome uses delightfully descriptive launguage which everyone in the house appreciates and understands.
What other book might you compare The Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow to and why?
Three men in a boat, by the same author. It follows the same format of being a collection of short stories. If you are not quite satisfied with one story then there will be a dozen others that appeal.
Which character – as performed by Peter Joyce – was your favorite?
I enjoyed them all.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
“I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”
Any additional comments?
Listen to all Jerome's books read by this narrator. I am!
