It seemed a simple enough idea at the outset: to assemble a team of 11 men to play cricket on each of the seven continents of the globe - except that's not a simple idea at all. And when you throw in incompetent airline officials, cunning Bajan drug dealers, overzealous American anti-terrorist police, idiotic Welshmen dressed as Santa Claus, and whole armies of pitch-invading penguins, you quickly arrive at a lot more than you bargained for. Read by Julian Rhind-Tutt (Doctor Mac from BBC2's Green Wing), Harry Thompson's hilarious book tells the story of one of those great madcap enterprises that only an Englishman could have dreamed up, and only a bunch of Englishmen could possibly have wished to carry out.More

Not very interesting book.
I'd more likely recommend the unabridged book as this book doesn't fully make sense and you don't get to know so much about the characters in it.
I thought Julian did an excellent job of doing all the different accents.
I found this book rather uninteresting and couldn't put anything into context till I read the full book. Julian does a great job with different accents but that was about all that redeemed it for me.
