Rattlin' Good Yarn

Would you consider the audio edition of Abracadaver to be better than the print version?

Yes, because hearing the very 'British' tones help set the scene.

What did you like best about this story?

The very funny and brilliantly descriptive writing.

What about John Kennedy Melling’s performance did you like?

The very good way he managed to deal with understatement and bewilderment in the characters.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed - a lot.

Any additional comments?

This story was 'right up my street,' and reminded me of the humour prevalent in the 1960s when we had such droll comics as Tony Hancock.
