I enjoyed this, but it doesn't make me want to rave about it. My attention wandered at points and I found I didn't really care a great deal about the characters in it. But I did find it interesting in terms of food as theatre, the Civil War and accompanying religious mania/persecution, and the workings of the kitchen in a big house in this period.

If you could sum up John Saturnall's Feast in three words, what would they be?
Engaging. Sumptuous. Slow.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the sections where the story advanced, and where the historical setting was brought to life.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The early days in the house and kitchen were most interesting
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
It might not be a surprise - but there's an awful lot of food in this book. I confess to skimming a lot of the descriptions, as they just seemed to hold up the plot.
Would you try another book from Lawrence Norfolk and/or John Telfer?
The story was interesting, if a little unexciting. John Telfer made the story very listenable.
Have you listened to any of John Telfer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is my first John Telfer narration and he does an excellent job.
Was John Saturnall's Feast worth the listening time?
