Yes. It is an understated child's view of life in a vulnerable situation.
Stealing guavas. It reminded me of stealing apples when I was young.
Intonation and articulation of the language speak. I'm a big fan of language in its many forms, particularly when it gives life to a character as Robin Miles did.
The book made me laugh and cry. I grew up in an unsettled Britain, ie; IRA, civil riots. It just reaffirmed my view that I had it great, no doubt, compared to African children being subjected, and still, to violence and abuse. However, the characters are there to hold you up, and make you laugh and smile through their cheekiness. That's children for you.Resilient.
Highly recommend it,but I am bias. A big B.W.A. fan. Includes the short story
The robot teddy, of course. Creepy!
Fantastic. Great intonations and humorous delivery of character dialogue.
The only disappointment and what I think spoiled a great listen was the audible page turning, plus hearing another muffled reading from what seemed another room at times.
