It is the retelling of King Lear by William Shakespeare, yet told from the perspective of a character named Pocket, a Fool. The voice of Euan Morton was the perfect choice, as his English accent immersed me into the story quickly and I stayed there, not leaving until I had to eject a CD in order to insert another.
I highly recommend this audio book to anyone who might become enticed by such a blurb:
Herein you will find gratuitous shagging, murder, spanking, maiming, treason, and heretofore unexplored heights of vulgarity and profanity, as well as non-traditional grammar, split infinitives, and the odd wank.
You won't be sorry. If you are or aren't, please share your experience in the comments below if you've read it or heard the audio version.
Or just say hello! =)
