This looked like a promising story about a boozy old cynic and his unlikely friendship with a naive young man. It started off well enough, particularly as the character of the younger man seemed to be someone you could really root for. Unfortunately the whole thing suffers from a confusing structure which includes long extracts from the book written by the main character - with no apparent benefit to the plot. It is also not at all funny despite what the synopsis says. I got about two thirds of the way through before realising I wasn't really listening any more. The fact that this is read by one of my favourite narrators makes me feel bad about not liking this book.
