This sequel to Tom Sharpe's classic comic novel Porterhouse Blue takes the listener back to the hilarious goings-on at Porterhouse College.
The instinct of the true Porterhouse man faced with a crisis is to reach for the bottle and then to fall back on the subtle tactical skills honed at Cambridge down the centuries: blackmail and kidnap. But will these be enough? Menaced on all sides - by the collapse of the Chapel, by the tentacles of organised crime, and by the hovering threat of the abominable Dog’s Nose Man - will Porterhouse be forced to unleash the most fearsome weapon in its armoury - the college food?

Tom Sharpe Gets Dull
A proper Thom Sharpe novel, rather than one that appears to have been written out of bits and tatters lying about.
Of course. I love his novels. I wish Audible carried more of them.
Entertaining. Witty. British.
This is not a proper sequel ot Porterhouse Blue. But it is properly named. Reading it really was...a Grind.

Another funny book from Tom Sharpe
The only other Tom Sharpe audiobook I've listened to is Porterhouse Blue, the first book in this series. Although I enjoyed listening to both these books neither of them were as funny as the two books I read as paperbacks - Ancestral Vices and Wilt in Nowhere. I couldn't read either of those two books in public because I laughed so hard that people would edge away from me in alarm. I'm not completely sure whether those two felt so much funnier because the stories were in fact funnier, or whether it was because the narrator sounded funnier in my head than it did read out loud by a professional.
I feel terrible for saying this because Jonathan Cecil is a great reader too.... but there is a certain kind of story that makes me think wistfully of Martin Jarvis.
