This book is a series of seemingly random thoughts triggered by memories of food. Being Maya, they are amusing and wonderfully written, but I felt I was left hanging because of the lack of organization or a stronger thread running through the text. Maybe reading the book would be easier to follow or feel more coherent - since I tend to listen to audiobooks while I do something else (like driving), I need all the help I can get to follow a narration! Of course the print version would not include Maya's wonderful voice with its warmth and humor.
If you love classic British humor, and you haven't stumbled upon Wodehouse yet, you are missing out. The storylines are all similar, impossibly soap-opera-like and hilarious. The characters are mostly bumbling, not too bright aristocrats, with the occasional level-headed character that gets them out of their scrapes.
I found the recording of this book to be somewhat unclear, and recorded in too low a pitch to hear well in the car, even when the volume of the stereo was turned up all the way. The narrator's voice was slightly blurry, I'm not sure if this is due to the actor or the recording quality, but it definitely took away from the enjoyment of the novel.
