    "Ok, but not one of his best"
    What did you like best about Of Wee Sweetie Mice and Men? What did you like least?

    I love the narration and a lot of Bateman's dialogue - it can be hilarious and much better than the overall story.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Colin Bateman? Why or why not?

    I've listened and read a lot of his books - I'm a fan.


    What does Adam Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I really like Adam Moore's narration - it just sounds 'right'.


    Do you think Of Wee Sweetie Mice and Men needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not in the sense of a follow-up story connected to this as I didn't think this was one of his best.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't think this story was great, but it's still worth a listen as there are some gems in there. My favourite one to listen to so far has been 'I predict a riot' which just made me laugh out loud on many occasions. I also really liked Driving Big Davie'

    The proof is in the pudding!
