A good beach book.....,
This review is from: 32 Programmes (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I eagerly anticipated this book as I, in the past, have avidly collected programmes and probably have over a thousand nestling in my attic. To go the process of reducing this collection to 32 would be a lenghthy and, at times, painful process so I reached for this book with some excitement. Roberts covers the 32 programmes that 'survive' in detail and thr reasons for keeping each; the book is semi-autobiographical and this is it's ultimate failing. There is no story behind the process of choosing and there is clearly a bigger life story clambering to escape ( how else can you explain the finale? ). I was left with a sense of disappointment at the conclusion, am enjopable read but one that could have been so, so much better.
