Funny little ditties
Would you listen to The Heart of the Dales again? Why?
Gervais, recounts his tales as a schools inspector with humour and sensitivity, he obviously loved his role and the special relationship he builds with children and staff alike.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heart of the Dales?
He recounts the tale of some school decorators, who haphazardly dispose of some paint thinners down the toilet.....then describes the chaos that ensues after one if them disposes of a cigarette whilst sitting on the unflushed toilet. Priceless
Have you listened to any of Gervase Phinn’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Listened to him live at the theatre before, which at the time I thought was unbeatable, but as he narrates his own books this was on a par.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Laughed my socks off
Any additional comments?
Thank you mum for introducing me to such a witty author.
