Tom Sharpe is still the 'laugh out loud' champion. Fun plot with all of the muddles and misunderstandings that he's famous for and a little twist at the end. GREAT

What did you love best about The Gropes?
This is a typical Tom Sharpe comedy, full of wonderful characters put into very improbable but amusing situations.
What does Michael Tudor Barnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The performance by Micheal Tudor Barnes was really engaging with a wide variety of voices for the the sometimes very eccentric characters.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh out loud.

We'll narrated by Michael Barnes, but not Tom Sharpe at his wittiest best.
Still an intriguingly absurd farce in the Tom Sharpe fashion. However, the characters don't seem to be as well developed as those in the Wilt mild.
having read the book I hoped they would grow on me, but unfortunately didn't.
I've rated the book by comparision with other books of the author. So the standard is still far above the efforts of his peers of this comedy genus.
Was a poor rework of the book written in 1978 by the same author - too many similarities in plot and characterisation to that piece
