I adore British literature from the Victorian Age through World war II, primarily, and fantasy, but also enjoy mysteries once in a while.
Although I own this book in hardcover, it has been a long time since I read it. I used one of my credits to acquire it from Audible recently, and one day instead of listening to classic rock, I started this up on my iPOD on a marathon walk. I walk daily, very long and very fast.
Let me tell you, breaking out into laughter, so hard one even snorts, is quite disruptive to one's aerobic breathing! And genuinely fun :D! This is a delightful book that will make you laugh uncontrollably in many places. It is beautifully rendered by Celeste Lawson.
By the way, I have a few fans out there who wave at me and smile but because I have been grinning like a monkey while listening to this charming book, I have doubled my race walking fan club, a nice side bonus of being an Audible devotee.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED comedy! Also so nostalgic of a time gone by and what it is like to be young...
