Most helpful critical review
on 12 July 2015
We had just read HG Wells's book "Kipps" in our book group, when one of our number pointed out that it was the basis for the musical "Half a Sixpence", which is why I ordered this.
It turned out to be in Spanish, apart from the songs, and it did take me a while to work out how to find the English version of the dialogue - not speaking enough Spanish to understand what the various options were!
I found it very syrupy, and not really to my taste - in fact I raced through a lot of it at double speed.
