Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, he wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps. His ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: "The Biggest Barrow in the World". Charlie's progress from the streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I do not know if the person that narrated this story has read the story because half the story is miss and as it is narrated it miss a lot of the important parts

What was most disappointing about Jeffrey Archer’s story?

the large part that was left off the narration of the story I would say about half the story is missing and it butchers the story the narration is rubbish

What character would you cut from As the Crow Flies?

the narrator

Any additional comments?

I am a member of this web site and have purchased many books from here this would be the most badly narrated book I have come across. I would like my money back as I do not pay for half a story
