I thoroughly enjoyed Alan Bennett's "Talking Heads" series in all the different formats and so I thought I would try reading one of his plays. I had high hopes which were sadly, very quickly quashed and that was just during the very, very very long introduction! I persevered through all that and finally got to the Play and was sorry I bothered, I found it hard to connect or empathise with any of the characters. I decided I really didn't care what was going to happen next and so didn't get past 17% of it on my Kindle! In fairness to Mr Bennnett, maybe it was just me and my lack of experience in reading Plays as I have only read a dozen or so. So it might not really be his fault.
