...but I was disappointed that this book did not reach the standard of Skippy Dies, which I really loved. I didn't want this book to be the same, but I did want it to be as good. In my opinion, it isn't.
The trademark dark humour is there but only in patches really; and I was not gripped by the story.
The narration was very good.

Without saying too much, this was one of the most relevant, articulate, inspiring and lucid books I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.
I now know what everyone I know is getting for Christmas this year!
Any additional comments?
Great book and the performance by Charlie Anson was outstanding. I loved every second of this and cannot recommend it more highly. Alongside the evisceration of amoral bankers and banks, the humorous story of the relationship between Claude and Paul, supported by a cast of colourful characters such as Igor, Remmington and the literary luvvies is both funny and tragic. Definitely going to buy Paul Murray's other book, and sign up to more Charlie Anson performances.
