Brilliant evocation of the 1970s in the post office and family life on a council estate.
Although Alan Johnson is not a top rate reader of his own moving story he is totally authentic so you warm to him. The story of industrial practices, union politics and the heart breaks of domestic life are wonderful told.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Just about. I was disappointed because of the glowing reviews and the favourable impression I had formed of AJ.
What did you like best about this story?
The life story is compelling; having said that it is being produced in relatively small episodes.
What didn’t you like about Alan Johnson’s performance?
To be honest, it was awful and it emphasised an unpolished writing style - just my opinion.
Do you think Please, Mister Postman needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I am sure that there will be at least one more, but I doubt whether I would listen to it.
