I had never heard of Tony Hendra and didn't realize he was famous until I listened to his narration of this book. But the title intrigued me so I decided to give it a go. What I found though, was that this book titled 'Father Joe' was much less about Father Joe than it was about Tony Hendra. Hendra was ego-centrical, obsessive, self-absorbed, and never missed the chance to do some name dropping. I was fascinated with Father Joe, however. A Benedictine Monk from the age of 17, he knew more about the world and it's traps and about what brings true happiness than you would imagine he could. What a gentle, kind soul he was... I wish I could have learned more about him. So the 3 stars are for Father Joe, not Tony Hendra....
