Having seen and loved the TV series, I have always wanted to read the books. This one did not disappoint. Some aspects of the story were much better d..Show More »eveloped than TV would have permitted and these added significantly to my enjoyment and appreciation of the story and characters. I like it when authors read their own work. My only criticism here is that Nobbs' voice tends to tail off at points and was a bit hard to hear in places. But the trade off is worth it. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.
