Btw, Kris Dyer, who narrates the audiobook, reminds me of Mr. Burns from The Simpsons.
I may have choked on my tea a little bit when he introduced a character named Smithers.
‘I’m going to bring in a boy called Smithers, and I want you to promise not to ballyrag him. He’s been withholding valuable information, but quite unintentionally. If you start blustering at him, he’ll probably dry up altogether. He’s very sensitive, though he doesn’t look it.’
