Chose this book because I like both the narrators and I was curious to see if this could keep my attention. This is a good pick, funny, sad, dealing with some of the big questions of life. Enjoy.
Would you listen to Who Is Tom Ditto again? Why?
Again and again and again......this book is very entertaining and has a twist that is fascinating. I LOVE the style of the author and the narrator. I am wild about the expertise of Kobna Holdbrook Smith in delivering all his expertise and art in a truly magnificent rendition of personalities..his ability to do many other voices give one the feeling of real separation...like listening to a play.

Thoroughly enjoyed it immensely..it made me smile.
Any additional comments?
Kobna Holdbrook Smith is an excellent narrator. Cant get enough of him! Listened to the London River series and just long for him to read us more and more. Rarely have I ever enjoyed a narration so much. I hope he does more and more narrations because I would read the books just to be with his voice and characterisations.

The story was intriguing and the characters well-developed - I really cared about them by the end. As someone in her late twenties who lives in London there were parts of the tale that resonated with me particularly. I feel that there's this myth that our parents generation had their life sorted out by 30. As it approaches it can feel like you're not going where you thought or that you're living someone else's dreams and ideals - whether that someone was once you or not. It was interesting to explore that and how the characters change in response to the absurd and the pointedly not.
I chose this because I really enjoyed Kobna-Holdbrook Smith's narration in the Rivers of London series. He is brilliant. I was worried that I would get character bleed - having associated the narrator with the aforementioned 5 books (that I've listened to multiple times each). However, his performance and the writing create a character that has, perhaps a touch ironically, a strong sense of self.
