Another touching addition to the series

Tom Bodett's End of the Road series is a collection of beautifully told stories. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad... always full of heart. There is nothing else like it.

Brilliant storytelling

Where does The Better Part of the End of the Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the best combination of story and voice I've ever heard. I hardly remember this fellow, but am now going to find the rest of his stuff.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Imagine if Garrison Keillor was four times as funny and had a pleasant voice.
