 The Uncommon Reader (Digital Audio) - Alan Bennett A great adventure with the Queen of England as she discovers books and the delicious pleasure of reading. I listened to the audio version with Mr. Bennett reading; after adjusting to his strong English accent I was completely drawn in by the narrative. Witty and clever, the listener gets to share the experience as the Queen find's that one's life is indeed transformed by the written word. Her obsession with reading is certainly not shared by others and leads to numerous odd and awkward moments. My favorite being when she tries to hold a dinner party with a roomful of authors most of whom lack social skills. Highly recommend.
