Please bring back Bill Wallis!

Would you try another book written by John Mortimer or narrated by Patrick Tull?


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick Tull?

Bill Wallis

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story is good, but the Bill Wallis version is much better.

Any additional comments?

I accidentally purchased this audiobook recommended by and found that I had already listened to it, but narrated by Bill Wallis. I only listed to 5 minutes of this, but the narration was painful: it sounded pompous and hesitant.
