This is one of the first audio books I have ever bought and, based on this, I will be buying many more. The writing is quirky and witty, the subject matter intriguing and all too familiar - it rang bells with me all the way through (but hey, maybe that's because I'm a 'Brit').
The narration was pefect and easy to listen to - ease of listening is a problem I have found with other books but not the case here.
If you are English and want a laugh, or not English and want a challenge, then this is the book for you.

The narrator is lovely and her voice and diction are wonderful. Overall, I had a nice experience with this audiobook. I disagree with the intonation of some of the parts, but even that I could have overlooked. However, what I cannot overlook is the fact that entire sections of the book were skipped. One time over 10 pages at once! I am glad I was listening and reading at the same time because I would have missed several important moments of the novel. You see, I read this novel to write an essay on it and the theme I chose to focus on was precisely the question of authenticity and culture as merchandise and some of the bits that were skipped had precisely to do with that. I don't understand why those parts were omitted but I do hope that this review is published and that other people will be aware of this if they decide to purchase this audiobook.
