Summary

To Porterhouse College, Cambridge, famous for rowing, low academic standards. and a proud cuisine, comes a new Master, an ex-grammar-school boy, demanding Firsts, women students, a self-service canteen, and a slot-machine for contraceptives. There is considerable opposition to this challenge to the established order, in the form of Skullion, the intransigent porter at Porterhouse, who is determined that the hallowed traditions of the College will never change.

Wet annoying narrator.

I had to stop after 10 min. The exaggerated accent is very annoying and was a big distraction from the story which wasn't great if you have no connections with Cambridge.

enjoyable satire

Wonderfully narrated satire.Tom sharpe is a clever writer and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the work to life. Somehow he micked the whole British class system with all of it's arrogance and crusty ignorance.I was actually dissappointed when it ended.

Laugh your a** off!

A masterfully brilliant reading of one of the funniest books ever penned in the English language. A delight throughout; as good as Amis's Lucky Jim, which would be a good addition, btw.
