The Roll-Call


Read by Simon Evers

(4.4 stars; 25 reviews)

"The Roll-Call" is the sequel to the Clayhanger trilogy. This book concerns the young life of Clayhanger's stepson, George. George Edwin Cannon (he quickly dropped the surname Clayhanger), is an architect, in many ways representing the ambitions held by his stepfather, Edwin. However, he possesses an arrogance endowed by family wealth and Bennett examines with some aplomb the difficulty of bringing up children without spoiling them. George eventually joins the army and this is a fitting finale to this fine series. (Summary by Simon Evers) (11 hr 53 min)

Reviews

Nicely Done

(5 stars)

Not as good as the Clayhanger Series but still enjoyable. Of course, one would enjoy the phone book if read by Simon Evers. He is outstanding!

(4 stars)

Rather surprisingly I enjoyed this book. It was a bit rambling but very well read and something different. More a man's story perhaps.

(4 stars)

Anything written be Arnold Bennett and read by Simon Evers is worth listening to.
