    "Plenty to think about - disappointing narrator"

    This book gives you plenty to think about. It explores politics and idealism and coming of age as well as difficult relationships between children and parents. Talks of social class and literature, deals with spiritual and emotional journeys.

    The narrator is very disappointing. He has a lovely voice and is very good at doing different accents and different voices for the various characters. What he seems incapable of doing is pausing in the right places, so he cuts up sentences in a way that renders them meaningless if you don't listen very carefully. He also puts emphasis on all the wrong words thus losing the flow of what is a very well written book. I didn't find it bad enough to give up but I definitely will not be choosing another one by him.
