If you could sum up The Old Joke in three words, what would they be?
Insightful, amusing, touching
What did you like best about this story?
This story didn't offer answers or try to exaggerate it's plot. I could recognise some of those characters and definitely the situations they encountered. I enjoyed it's quirkiness
Which character – as performed by Penelope Keith – was your favourite?
Mims - I liked her because she loved her garden and wouldn't be persuaded back into her old life. I liked her honesty and her puzzlement/resentment over family relationships and above all her love for her husband.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to this over several sittings - I would have loved to listen over longer periods of time, but my life doesn't work like that at present! However I found it was a story I thought about until I listened to the next episode and it was easy to 'pick up the thread'
Any additional comments?
I wasn't sure about Penelope Keith as a narrator, never having listened to her for long periods, but she was really good!
