What would have made Man Overboard better?
Monica Dickens's books are usually enjoyable - light, funny, often moving. Man Overboard was quite simply dreadful. I couldn't engage with any of the characters and found the story quite pointless. And the narration was, quite simply, dreadful - more suited to a Famous Five story than a theoretically adult book. The wrong words were inflected in the reading, many were mispronounced, the "females" sounded like John Cleese playing a woman, and the whole thing was delivered in a breathless rush. A sad disappointment.
Would you listen to Man Overboard again? Why?
After finishing reading this I immediately read it again. I didn't want to lose the characters
who had become my friends. It is years since I last read a Monica Dickens novel and I had forgotten how great she was, This story is vastly entertaining, amusing and yet serious.

Ben learning how to become a 'demon salesman'
