"A very gentle book"
It was a pleasant but rather bland book, not much story but nice gentle 'background listening' while I was busy with other things. The narration was a bit irritating, too deliberate and expressionless but the book does have a quiet charm and I don't regret buying it, I may even listen to it again at some point in the future.
Loved it, made me laugh throughout just could not stop listening I will be buying the next book in the series.
