having read the sunbierd and been thrilled by it, i downloaded this audio version to listen to it while travelling.
it has been abridged, and some essential parts removed altogether.
apart from that, the thrill that was conveyed in print is missing. even the despair that gnaws at you while reading it is shallower and more fleeting.
do not take it as a sample of wilbur smith's works. he is far far better than this audiobook is.
this is one of the master humourist's lesser offerings.
it sounds a little stale for those who are avid fans. for first meeters with pg wodehouses, it gives a great introdcution.
this is an intro to only the very basic philosophies and they too are not completely covered.
what is more, the listener is unnecessarily confused by the convolutions.
but it is better than nothing
