Listening to an unabridged reading of S&A is great, but this reader has misinterpreted fundamentally the first crucial plot line. He reads the famous telegram as "Better drowned than duffers. If not, duffers won't drown". I know the best interpreter of AR's books is Gabriel Woolf, but his readings are abtidged and, while I think he's done it so well, you hardly notice anything left out, I am a bit of a stickler for unabridged versions of books. Any thoughts on who would be as good an AR interpreter? Alex Jennings, who has done some brilliant Dickens' readings, has done his version of S&A but, sadly, the library's only copy has been withdrawn due to a missing CD. I think Martin Jarvis would be fantastic. His Just William readings are pure joy.
