    Story
    (57)

    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
    What made the experience of listening to Lionel Asbo the most enjoyable?

    The story is unusual, and descriptions of life in small English town are quite funny. Antics of the title character, well read by performer, greatly amused me..

    Fifteen year old Des realizing that his title character guardian might have discovered his liaison with youngish grandmother.
