Pacy classic

I came to this after listening to a Radio 4 production of London's "The Sea Wolf" and, if I'm honest, because it turned up cheap.

Technically the recording isn't as clean as some others, but this really just adds to the vintage atmosphere.

There's a lot going on, many villains, a few heroes, and a lot of exposition from the dog's point of view.

If you're a dog lover, you'll have your dander up in a few places, but it's no spoiler to say that things will be settled to your satisfaction. As story that has a lot of period detail and vocabulary (obviously) but it doesn't feel dated.
