A throughly good listen
I really enjoyed this book, and will enjoy listening to it again and again over future months and years. The plot is excellent, without too much in the way of distractions. No obscene words, just the 'b' word a couple of times. Both times it was in context, quite funny in fact.
There isn't another book I could compare it with, it is unique in its own field.
No, but I am looking forward to doing so having downloaded two more audio books.
Yes, but unfortunately one does have to go to bed!
I wish I had discovered this author sooner.
