Like many others, I didn't read the small note at the bottom of the book description listing this as part of a British radio program inspired by the book. And so, like many others, I was totally disappointed. Evidently the book is not available as an unabridged audio on CD.
This isn't the book -- it's excerpts from the radio programs on which the book was based. Very much false advertising!!
I guess I need to read some more about punctuation, but I still don't get the semi-colon. I have recently tried out the semi-colon and I just don't like using it. I will just continue to write two sentances...
Hated it. What a waste. Who cares. Maybe this is better as a hardcover book, but in audio form it just doesn't work.
Quite entertaining foray into grammar. I had no trouble listening to the reader's beautiful British accent and was engaged throughout. But it ended too soon.
Not what I expected. This CD contains excerpts from a British radio show concerning grammar and punctuation. Short, hard to hear some portions. The concept is a little funnier than the reality.
I had seen this book on the best seller list for quite some time and was intrigued. The book was not what I had expected. It was entertaining enough (loved the panda joke which was the highlight for me) but not a very lengthy CD.
I didnt even listen to this for I made a mistake in taking this selection
I was a bit disappointed with this CD. It was very short and the radio show host, Ms. Truss, was quite hard to understand. The concept is good and I enjoyed taking away a bit of trivia. I wish I could have liked this more.
I liked the concepts, but reader was hard to follow with the accent...
