©1974 Tom Sharpe; (P)1987 Chivers Audio Books
Middle aged; long University course (science based), and long service as a professional. Cynical and very interested in the real world.
Wonderfully narrated satire.Tom sharpe is a clever writer and the narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the work to life. Somehow he micked the whole British class system with all of it's arrogance and crusty ignorance.I was actually dissappointed when it ended.
yes, to catch anything I might have missed the first time.
other Tom Sharpe work
I listened to this author for the first time traveling in tandem with other family members on the way to a funeral.. several hundred miles, through several states. They looked on in wonder trying to figure out why I was laughing so hard at such a sober, and sad event . Just another great piece of work by this man. All of his early work is a must have for me, in print as well as audible..
A beautiful reading of a great story. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The story is the ultimate irony in that the porter scullion becomes master of Porterhouse by accident and suffers the traditional masters fate of a Porterhouse Blue.
Scullion as he represents traditionalism.
havent listened to others but will look out for them now.
no but it lends itself to reading in parts
I liked the David Jason portrayal on tv and am glad I bothered to read the book.
This is one of my all time most enjoyable books to read, but unfortunately in my own personal opinion Griff Rhys Jones does not read it too well which came as a great surprise to me because he is one of my favourite broadcasters. His delivery was far too fast which at times was almost a gabble.
Reading books is obviously a difficult art which certain people such as Timothy West is a master of but others struggle with.
