    "great reading"

    I thought this worked great as an audiobook.



    Like a previous reviewer I was a little ashamed at not having read the book- I've bought a copy since- simply because I came across it very cheap in Oxfam- and I was surprised how much denser it looked on the page- so that's an achievement- to make a dense book easy audio.



    It wouldn't have worked nearly so well without Germaine Greer reading it herself- it was great to have a narrator that had a complete understanding of the text and an authorial authority over it, adding a (very occassional) footnote and, once, a rather telling 'Huh!'



    Audible ought to now engage her to narrate a few Barbara Cartland romances- her reading of extracts from Cartland and Georgette Hayer were screamingly funny.

    "Not for me"

    Sorry but for the first time since joining Audible I do not want to continue to listen to this book.

    "Has dated, but important to have read it"

    I'm embarrassed that I hadn't read this before, and would have benefited from it decades ago. Although many things have changed, many things remain as true now as when this book was written. It was ok in audible format, though narrative works are more enjoyable in this format.
