Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Goodbye Soldier, written and read by Spike Milligan.

"I'm Spike, sometimes known as 'stop thief' or 'hey you.'"
"Yeser, I know."
The sixth volume of Spike Milligan's off-the-wall account of his part in World War Two sees our hero doing very little soldiering. Because it's 1946. Rather, he is now part of the Bill Hall Trio - a 'Combined Services Entertainment' inflicted on unsuspecting soldiers across Italy and Austria - and is largely preoccupied with the unbearably beautiful ballerina, Ms Toni Fontana ("Arghhhhhhhhh!").

Give this a miss

Severley let down with the quality of the audio. Couple this with Spikes' poor health at the time of the recording it makes for a poor experience. I truly am a big fan of all his work but this tarnishes his memory. Should be pulled from circulation.
