(P)1989 by Recorded Books, Inc.
This cult classic seemed like a lot of fun but eventually I gave up because it was nearly impossible to make out the words through the horrible distortion of the low-quality recording. Hope this gets an upgrade eventually.
I want to read this book, and it seems like it would be ideal to listen to as an audio book. But this recording is of such poor quality that I haven't been able to stand listening to it. I've tried to start it several times, but the worble and wow and flutter make me rip the earphones out of my ears in disgust. I hope Audible gets a better version.
This book has a very dry wit. The veneer of Victorian sensibility masks a deft hand at, effectively, slapstick humor. The humor doesn't jump out at you, it is more a matter of sitting back, enjoying the boat ride, and watching the silliness grow.
