    Story
    (40)

    Author Paul Torday makes his debut with this clever absurdist novel. Fisheries scientist Dr. Alfred Jones is approached by an extravagantly wealthy sheik with a novel plan. To foster goodwill, the sheik would like to introduce salmon fishing to Yemen - the same Yemen that is largely a desert - and politicians think it's a great idea.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Salmon Fishing In The Yemen to be better than the print version?

    For me the audio version is always better. Listening is like going to a play with my eyes closed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was different - not the usual hum drum subjects that I get tired of no matter how well written


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Glad I went to the movie before listening to the book. The other way around I would have been disappointed.
