The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett (2008)
The Uncommon Reader is none other than the Queen of England, who one day happens to visit a mobile library parked at Buckingham Palace. She borrows a novel because she feels she probably ought to… And from then on, nothing is quite the same!
I listened to this short novel (124 pages in print) as audio book in Swedish translation. To me it seemed to end a bit abruptly; but then (just listening to it) I was not prepared for it to be that short. On the whole, I’d say the author was probably wise not to try to stretch the story further. As a short satire, I found it amusing - even if not as great literature as many of the books mentioned within it. (I wonder if the Queen read it?!)
PS. My advice would be to borrow it from the library :)
