This audio version of Waugh's first published work exudes satire at every turn. When Paul Pennyfeather is thrown out of school, he is forced to find his way in life as a schoolmaster. This change in circumstances leads to all manner of misadventures, each one rich with opportunities to make fun of 1920s British society. Stefan Rudnicki's resonant voice carries such depth that it fairly booms at times during this performance. When his comic timing is at its best--with suitable pauses and appropriate emphasis--the audiobook is laugh-out-loud funny. Occasionally, the delivery does not take full advantage of these important features, and some of the humor is lost in the rush. Still, this is a fun listen and a great introduction to Waugh's work.
