LUCKY JIM

by | Read by Richard Green

Fiction • • Unabridged • ©

Lucky Jim is Jim Dixon, who has a precarious position teaching history at an English, redbrick university and whose schemes to advance his interests go horribly awry. Amis is a connoisseur of bores and boredom, of affectation and interpersonal tyranny. Above all, though, he's the undisputed master of portraying the untoward consequences of drink. One such scene, perhaps the funniest ever conceived, occurs in this book. Richard Green, whose reading is excellent, particularly in his restrained rendering of regional accents, can be just detected suppressing laughter at this and at one other point, but he rallies and these incidents are more accolades than lapses.
