    Lionel Asbo, a terrifying yet weirdly loyal thug (self-named after England's notorious "Anti-Social Behaviour Order"), has always looked out for his ward and nephew, the orphaned Desmond Pepperdine. He provides him with fatherly career advice (always carry a knife, for example) and is determined they should share the joys of pit bulls (fed with lots of Tabasco sauce), Internet porn, and all manner of more serious criminality. Des, on the other hand, desires nothing more than books to read and a girl to love .

    Story
    Where does Lionel Asbo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high up. Great British reader. I couldn't get into the book, but knew that the audio would be good.


    Which character – as performed by Alex Jennings – was your favorite?

    Lionel - I can still hear his voice in my head many months later.


    If you could rename Lionel Asbo, what would you call it?

    Lottery Lout. Asbo is so perfect = Anti-social behaviour order. This guy just didn't get it.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually listen to audio books when they have different accents.
