Loved the perspective of the protagonist. The hi-jinks that ensued after becoming entangled with a strange young woman? Not so much.

An interesting and well written book that weaves the challenges of hearing loss, an ageing parent and the intricacies of marriage and a blended family.

How can I sell a novel about a retired linguistics prof who is going deafer by the day? David Lodge is an author I have enjoyed over the years so I took it on faith to give this one a try. What a great read! You will gain a sympathetic understanding of the frustrations faced by the hard of hearing (turning up the hearing aid is not always the solution) while being pulled along by interesting characters and a plot line involving a student stalker.

Disappointing; one sympathises with a deaf person, and Lodge makes clear 100 reasons why we should sympathise more. But still, if after 4 chapters we're still reading clinical detail and not much story, the premise begins to lose our imaginative response.
