This is a very whimsical story. Some people may find that an original and attractive and attractive quality but for me it meant the plot was thin in places and unnecessary convoluted in others. It 's not a logical story and the characters are strange - on purpose. It's clearly a period piece and may have amused the entitled and possibly bomb-happy undergraduates of the post-war years but it's all a bit too consciously jaunty for my own rather sober and perhaps, by comparison, Bolshevik tastes.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would totally recommend this to a friend. All the Gervase Fen (not Phinn!) novels are hilarious, and quirky, and satisfying.
What did you like best about this story?
I can't isolate one thing - the characters, old friends by now; the plot - wow! Who would have thought?! The great writing - too much to love to isolate one thing. Enjoyed Paul Panting's reading too.
Which character – as performed by Paul Panting – was your favourite?
Well, Gervase Fen is irascible and erratic and impertinent and brilliant, so I suppose he must take the trophy.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I had that long just to listen I would!
Any additional comments?
It is excellent - don't know what other superlatives to add. If you like classic mysteries, I would think you would enjoy this!
