A great sequel. Initially I didn't get on with the narrator as well as Julian Glover who read the previous book. But he won me over as it went on and ultimately he definitely does justice to this affectionate, witty and moving novel.

I adore Frank and am totally in love with both the wonderful books written about him. A must read for everyone to understand the simple pleasure of company and someone to talk to , when you are alone in later life.
