Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is witty story which takes us into the world of British politics in 1960, as imagined from the time of its writing in the 1930s. It combines a satirical and rather cynical view of political morality and has its fair share of descriptive longeurs in which the thrust of the storyline becomes secondary. However it is well worth listening to, spoilt only by the rather robotic and affected style of the narrator.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Postmaster General?
The clever denouement in which the devious politician and his business sidekick are outwitted.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Robotic and affected manner, who often puts incorrect emphasis on syllables and can slow the pace down too much.
Do you think The Postmaster General needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
