If you're the sort who find all British humour funny. If even the silliest most repetitive stuff tickles your funny bone, then you might enjoy this book. Otherwise, steer clear. It's dreadfully dull.
This book was witty and a lot of fun. I enjoy the Jack Spratt series even more than the Thursday one. The narrator was engaging--an all-around great audiobook experience.
Having read all the Tuesday Next series, I tried this. It is just as good. The reader of this book is kind of understated, but he is very good. His style may take getting used to if you listened to the Tuesday Next books--he's more deadpan. Still an excellent reader and the book is absorbing and entertaining.
What a great way to pass the time while waiting for Jasper Fforde's next Thursday Next novel!
What a delightful 'listen.' The narrator is excellent and the material very clever. If you liked the first in the series, you'll enjoy Mary Mary and Jack Spratt again!
