Sick of meaningful novels full of angst? Fed up with soul searching by boring characters you wouldn't want to get trapped at a party with? Totally over murder mysteries of horrible goriness and sadistic violence so loaded with forensic detail you can't sleep well for days? This book is for you. A totally ironic, witty gallop through bits of England with lashings of irrelevant history thrown in as well as a not entirely fully explained murder/suicide. Best not to enquire too closely. Brilliantly narrated with tongue firmly in cheek which is where the entire novel has it. Cant wait for more of the same.
This is the second of Ian Sansom's enormously engaging "County Guides" series, and I can't wait for the next. The creation of Swanton Morley is a master stroke.
Mike Grady is exactly right for this book. He brings Morley to life in all his maddening glory, and gives Sefton a very satisfying wry candour. Funny, with the occasional dark motif as contrast, this audiobook is a treat I shall return to.

I just cannot get into this story but am sure many people will enjoy it and the wonderful voice of the narrator.
