Exhilarating

Richard's voice is so beautifully suited to reading these works. The pacing, diction and lifew he brings to the words is just magnificent. And what words! Saki has the gift of taking a description of someone or something that would be a few words in anyone elses hands, and stretch it to a word picture of exquisite detaila nd usually comedy.

I was astounded to find that Richard was not a pofessional actor of some reknown that I had missed. I htink hew deserves to be.

I cannot recomend these readings hioghly enough to anybody who enjoys English and humour with a slightly malicious undercurrent.

Keith.

Podcasts don't get bettter than this.

The Saki stories are very funny and have been funny for long enough for them to have become classics. Here they are perfectly read with dry wit and real understanding, and come at a perfect price. Very highly recommended indeed.
