An excerpt:
"If they didn't have Billy for selling the apple to the serpent who peddled it to Eve, it was because the serpent refused to testify against him. Professional courtesy and all that."

    "Rambling words"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The style of the book I meant that it wasn't a story, it was just rambling, there may have been a story in there somewhere but there was nothing to grip me. As a result I hadn't a clue who was who, I half listened mainly longing for the end so I could listen to something else
