Salmon Fishing in the Yemen – Paul Torday

Although I’m not planning a fishing trip anytime soon, I grabbed this audiobook in search of some fun before my summer road trip. What I found was a story about fate, miracles, and ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. The story is narrated through letters, emails, and interview transcripts that follow this bizarre plan to introduce salmon fishing into Yemen, between the British government and Yemeni Sheikh.

 It is a great story that makes you believe in the impossible, full of personal influences and political agendas. Funny and inspiring at the same time. Warmly recommended to anyone searching for comedy with bite. (submitted by IM)

  1. I read this book and loved it too. The subtle humour, the strange relationship between the protagonist and his wife, the bizarre outcome – it was very entertaining!
