Summary

It's December 1963 when Billy Hopkins and his wife, Laura, arrive home in Manchester after five years in Africa. The world they left behind has changed beyond recognition: now, it's the swinging 60s. But Billy's less concerned about the impact of modern society on his family than about the welfare of his increasingly forgetful father and about the daily (and sometimes exquisitely humorous) challenges he faces as a college lecturer. When the four junior Hopkins start to choose their own, unexpected paths in life, Billy finds it harder than usual to see the funny side of things. Anything Goes brings readers close to a warm and loving family who somehow get through all their ups and downs without ever losing their sense of humour.

An excellent listen

An ordinary story, about ordinary folk with ordinary lives and ordinary problems that we can all relate to. Gently told and with much humour.

Although the book did not start off in a very promising fashion, it grew 'like Topsy', and within an hour became rather addictive. I followed each character's trials, tribulations and joys with interest.

In all a most enjoyable listen.
