Really enjoyed this book.

This book drew me into it as it went along. I found the characters engaging and the writing was full of wry Jewish humour. (You don't need to be Jewish to appreciate this) Paul Matthew read it exceptionally well with an easy throw away style. He really brought the characters to life in a way that, I suspect, I might have missed had I merely read it myself. Well worth the read / listen.
