Read in November, 2011

Read this book with my book club and it is 2 short stories that I didn't really rate as 'smutty'. I have wanted to read and Alan Bennett for a while but this was really not my thing. It's reviews state that it is funny but I didn't find myself that amused - it just wasn't my cup of tea. I think I will read 'other peoples lives' as I am sure I would love dear old AB just not this one. It's perfectly readable and very short so I am not surprised others love it. I preferred the second story to the first but can't even think who to pass this book onto. I have to say that I love the look, size and feel of this book and was really looking forward to reading it so perhaps my enjoyment was marred by too high expectations - it really wasn't what I envisaged
