About Geoffrey Palmer

Geoffrey Palmer is most widely known for his long and vastly successful partnership with Dame Judi Dench in the BBC series As Time Goes By, but has had a long and successful career on British TV in hit comedies such as The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin and Butterflies  as well  as being heard  as the voice in numerous  commercials.    

Geoffrey Palmer’s famously lugubrious voice is ideally suited to George Grossmith’s highly entertaining comedic tale Diary Of A Nobody available as an audio book download from Silksoundbooks.

The Diary of a Nobody Audiobook

The Diary of a Nobody Audiobook
Written by George Grossmith
Read by Geoffrey Palmer

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!

Father and Son Audiobook

Father and Son Audiobook
Written by Edmund Gosse
Read by Geoffrey Palmer

The hugely popular English actor Geoffrey Palmer reads this superbly funny, agonising account of a very strange childhood.

Probably everyone has a swipe at their parents and the way they were brought up at some point in their lives, very few of us exact revenge to the extent that Edmund Gosse did upon his father.

The subtitle of the book is A Study of Two Temperaments and these were temperaments not destined to get on, Gosse Sr. was an eminent naturalist and zoologist and a keen follower of the Plymouth Brethren. Gosse Jr. had a natural leaning towards the arts and would grow up to be one of Victorian England’s leading literary figures. The battle lines were drawn. Throw into the picture the struggle already taking place within Gosse Sr (and most of the rest of the country) to reconcile his faith with the new Theory of Evolution as expounded by his fellow naturalist Charles Darwin and backed up by his own zoological studies and you have the makings of a seriously entertaining fight..
