TheManWhoWouldManage by JeromeK.Jerome, read by RuthGolding

(5 Sterne)

when I looked through the list of contents and spotted the authors name, then saw the readers name, I knew I had to hear it!!! I've only just discovered Jerome K. Jerome, and I think his writing has a punchy kind of humor. A little dash of dark comedy with a a heap of human follies and foibles. And Ruth Golding is such a fantastic reader!! To my American ears, she sounds quite a bit like Dame Judi Dench.
