Enjoyable, but rather far-fetched

Would you listen to Part of the Furniture again? Why?

I thought I'd read all Mary Welsey's novels, but seemed to have missed this one. Although her atmospheric scene setting and quirky characters are all there as you would expect, I found the storyline extremely far-fetched and often found myself thinking "No, surely not...!" It was extremely well read by Samuel West and the whole book was a pleasant distraction, but certainly not one of her better novels in my view.

Would you recommend Part of the Furniture to your friends? Why or why not?


Which character – as performed by Samuel West – was your favourite?

Mr Copplestone senior, whose name I have forgotten...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
