I love the Dales series. This memoir doesn’t live up to those. The biggest difference for me was the lack of a narrative arc. The Dale books have a beginning, middle, and end. This feels like random stories collected under loose headings.
Also, not all of the stories felt like they were original to him. I have heard/read them elsewhere. I was surprised at that from him. What were his editors thinking?
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to Gervase Phinn narrate this wonderful book. I will certainly buy many, many more by this author.
If you could sum up Out of the Woods but not Over the Hill in three words, what would they be?
Witty, fun, intresting
What did you like best about this story?
I loved listening to this book. After reading other of Gervase's books this book gives you an insight into where he got many of his ideas for settings , characters and story lines.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I enjoyed Gervase's ramblings about the English language. They were fascinating and written in such a way that they also humorous
Any additional comments?
Although I enjoyed this book, if you have read his other books, you do find yourself covering the same material that he has written before.
