In a narrow boat built strictly for inland canals, two British retirees and their whippet sail across the English Channel, into the Mediterranean, and up to Carcassonne, France. Having committed to the journey in a barroom dare, the husband believes his honor is at stake. Steve Hodson reads the first-person account as if it were his own. He captures every accent, from Oxford English to Schwabishe German, without flaw. Hodson also conveys the understated British humor making up most of the story, keeping the listener laughing throughout. Wry asides about the whippet's sex drive and fear of water mix with horrifying tales of storms at sea and social gaffes at the dock. One never knows what the travelers will next encounter, and never wants the story to end.
