Townsend's political farce will delight the wide audience of Royal Family watchers. When the Queen, Prince Philip, Charles, Diana and the Queen Mum are relocated to public housing, they must deal with "ordinary" life. Townsend's book would be difficult for a non-British reader, as appreciating the language and colloquialisms are the keys to its delight. Barbara Rosenblat has the listener in stitches from the opening paragraphs. It's a new delight as each familiar character enters the scene. Rosenblat has a masterful command of the nuances of the language and conveys so much through carefully chosen dialects. The story was made for audio listening, and Rosenblat does it full justice.
