    Story
    "Dry wit, refreshing if not a bit dated now."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would, Dickie Bird, Jon Pertwee, Brian Blessard who can not find them amusing.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jon Pertwee is a great voice narrator and Brian Blessard just blows out the words. If you read the book and know their voices you would hear them rattle through your brain but hearing them is so much better.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Could not see this as a movie, but if a stand up or small group theatre most certainly.


    Any additional comments?

    Better for the older and wiser, scenes and stories are dated but still knowing each of the actors in this book from my TV screen it does take you back.
