Summary

From the best-selling author of Are we Nearly there Yet? (Radio 2 Book of the Year & voted Amazon Customers' Fave Kindle Read 2011) comes a new hilarious and touching story of travel chaos.
Ben Hatch is on the road again. Commissioned to write a guidebook about France (despite not speaking any French) he sets off with visions of relaxing chateaux and refined dining. Ten thousand miles later his family's been attacked by a donkey, had a run-in with a death-culti, and, after a near drowning and a calamitous wedding experience involving a British spy, his own marriage is in jeopardy.
A combination of obsessions about mosquitoes, French gravel, and vegetable theme parks mean it's a bumpy ride as Ben takes a stand against tyrannical French pool attendants, finds himself running with the bulls in Pamplona and almost starring in a snuff movie after a near-fatal decision to climb into a millionaire's Chevrolet Blazer.
Funny and poignant, Road to Rouen asks important questions about life, marriage, and whether it's ever acceptable to tape baguette to your children's legs to smuggle lunch into Disneyland Paris.

Interesting narration, but great book

What made the experience of listening to Road to Rouen the most enjoyable?

I loved Ben's book, but Andrew Wincotts narration bothered me, especially when doing Dinah or the children's words.... curious
