In this very funny unabridged audio book The Diary of A Nobody, read by star actor Geoffrey Palmer, we meet Mr Charles Pooter, a city clerk of lower middle-class status but with significant social aspirations.
Realising that his life does not appear to be remarkable enough to attract the attention of a biographer, he decides to jolly well write one for himself. The result is his hilarious diary detailing his unconscious gaffes and self-importance, as well as the snubs he receives from those he considers socially inferior.
George Grossmith’s description of the seemingly ordinary life of this most wonderful of nobodies is one of the most entertaining and famously funny books in classical literature.
Geoffrey Palmer’s perfectly lugubrious tones make this a dangerous choice for listening to on the train – laughing out load is inevitable!
