Sharpe has given us a hysterically funny romp through British politics and marital problems among the country gentry. I chortled the whole way through. Be advised: there are mature themes (sexuality, in particular), and the liberal dropping of the F-bomb by one character in particular.
I must say that David Suchet truly brought all the eccentric, stereotypic British "country house set" characters to life brilliantly. I've been looking at the other Sharpe books, but none of them are narrated by Suchet, so I can't decide if I want to get them, as well.

Danger, warning! Do not listen to this audiobook whilst driving as giggling leads to erratic driving and swerving all over the road and you do not want to become another blot on the landscape do you?

If you read the book, you'll love this. If you remember the television series with Geraldine James, George Cole, Julia McKenzie and David Suchet himself, you'll love this. David Suchet brings everyone completely to life, and his Mrs Forthby's "yes, yes" should rate some sort of audio-reader Oscar in itself. Wonderfully funny story, brilliantly read, and perfect from start to finish.
