Loved it!

Having just reread Fear of Flying after decades, I bought this and so pleased I did! Saucy, funny, poignant and brilliantly written in the style of the time. Superbly read as well so what more could you ask for?! A truly good listen!
Then to be bitterly disappointed in Fear of Dying but that's a different story .....

Cunning? - Well, close!

Some good moments but the story stuttered along. Quite a few rude parts but in a comical way. If you like that kind of thing. Well narrated.
