Wonderfully Read

(5 stars)

Chris has a beautiful voice, charming accent, and does a wonderful job at developing the personality of this book. The book is quite a surprise - I have always enjoyed Jerome for his humor, but this is much more thoughtful and full of interesting ideas.


(4 stars)

As with many of this author's books, I found much of it funny and most of it entertaining, at least, while some bits seem to have ended up here by mistake and are neither funny or entertaining. However, the beer barrel rocking chair in chapter 3 is so funny that all is forgiven in an instant.


(3 stars)

I feel like chapters 9, 10, and 11 might as well have been dropped altogether. I couldn't understand the reader of these 3 chapters. He spoke English HORRIBLY. When considering readers, please use good English speaking readers for books in English. He would have been better suited reading a book in his native language. I'm really disappointed, because I'm really liking Jerome K. Jerome's books, and I had to skip 3 full chapters of this book.
