Item description for The Diary of a Nobody (Classic Literature with Classical Music) by George Grossmith & Weedon Grossmith...
This delightful Victorian comic diary is a classic of "English Humour" which has never been out of print since its first publication in 1892. City clerk Charles Pooter asks: 'Why should I not publish my diary...because I do not happen to be a "somebody"?' He proceeds to catalogue all the social clangers he makes unwittingly as he bumbles his way through life, yet a sympathy develops for Pooter in the face of it all. "The Diary of a Nobody" is an ideal text for the talents of Martin Jarvis.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Diary of a Nobody (Classic Literature with Classical Music)?
Fantastic audio recording! Jul 16, 2007
I have already reviewed the print version of The Diary of a Nobody (Oxford World's Classics), so there's no need to repeat it here. Martin Jarvis has such a jovial British voice and really makes Grossmith's classic comic novel come alive. I would highly recommend this audio recording for fans of the book, or for those who have never read it. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this would be an instance where one could listen to the audio recording without reading the book- Jarvis is that good. 5 out of 5.
