Thoroughly enjoyable!

I read this book some time ago and liked it, so I thought it would be a good choice for my first foray into Listening Books. I was not disappointed!
I very much enjoyed the fact that the narrator is of the right ethnicity to give authenticity to the reading, and Vaseem Khan’s clever plotting and gentle humour are a joy. The major characters are all people (or elephants!) you grow to care about - a most pleasurable experience all round!
I will most certainly be borrowing more books in this series soon.
