Publisher's Summary

Donald Cameron, a young Scotsman, is commissioned to write a book on the outsider's view of the English. He sets about his task with enthusiasm, encountering along the way an array of richly comical characters including civil servants, newspaper editors, minor poets, a glamourous movie star, politicians, and many more. This satire of English eccentricity has become a classic of 20th century literature.

Amusing but unoriginal

Content is a 2, but narrator lifts the recording to a 3. Mostly absurd, stereotypical, outdated folderol that masquerades as humor, but occasionally I laughed until my sides hurt.

Too brief.

Would you try another book written by A. G. Macdonell or narrated by Martin Jarvis?

Yes

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

A shame that it was not verbatim as it is crucial to the understanding of the whole.

What aspect of Martin Jarvis’s performance might you have changed?

None

Do you think England, Their England needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It is fine in itself.

Any additional comments?

Too much detail was missed out in my view.
