Having listening to over 800 books over the last 19 years, this is the first time I have written a review....This book was over touted and a big fat disappointment. I wonder what the writer really wrote and what the editor published. It did not bring a smile to my face, let alone a laugh. The narrator was dull at best and did not bring the characters any life. I was previewing for my book club and it will get a NO!

What made the experience of listening to The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise the most enjoyable?
The story was original as it was a fictional story mixed in with fascinating historical facts about the Tower of London.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved the parts about the animals, when the Royal Menagerie is moved to the Tower for a short while. Really hillarious! I also very much enjoyed the work of the women who try to find the owners of all the weird items that are left on the London Underground. Very intertaining!
Which character – as performed by Jonathan Cowley – was your favorite?
The main character is fascinating, having held on to a guilt for so long and developed an odd behavior to cover it up. All the characters are quirky and unique, which makes this book a wonderful listen.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
All the main characters have something sad about their life, and of course I felt that too although I did not get overwhelmed by it due to the funny aspects of the story.
Any additional comments?
The reader has a pleasant and clear voice.
