Outstanding book

I listened to the BBC Classic serial of the sword of honour trilogy back in the early 1970’s and was hooked on Evelyn Waugh.
These were in the days when there were true classics broadcast in several parts rather than the dumbed down fare in two 45 minute sound bites which passes as ‘inform educate and entertain’. To my knowledge this has never been repeated
So this unabridged version read by Christian Rodska is a real treat.

Superb narration of a masterpiece

Any additional comments?

I cannot imagine the narration being bettered. Waugh's characters come to life, the comic scenes are delivered deadpan and are all the funnier, and overall the pacing is superb. Nor do we lose sight of Guy Crouchback's sad trajectory through the war. One of the best audiobooks I have listened to.
