Every other word is "fat this" and "fat that."

The author seems unable to write a single sentence about the main character without the word "fat." Spoils what could be a great story. Every time a part of his body is mentioned, it's "his fat shoulder" or "his fat brain."

Classic Billy Bunter!

This is a great Billy Bunter story, up there with the best of them. The story is largely based around Billly's group of friends: Harry Wharton, Bob Cherry & Co., but Billy's also there in the thick of things.

The language in these Bunter stories is from another age - getting on for a hundred years ago. I remember being confused when I tried to read the books/magazines back in the 1960s, however my son was able to appreciate them from about 8 or 10 years age and we share a love of the books and especially the audio recordings now.

Martin Jarvis is brilliant, as always.

I've played this time and again and with a long flight due I'm about to load it onto my MP3 player for another listen!
