    I would like - if I may - to take you on a strange journey. This was my favourite series of gamebooks as a kid, and I thought we could play through them together.

    Are you sitting comfortably?

    Then I'll begin.

    Yes, it just gets off to a slow start because it's the first book and wants to set the scene and such.

    Not sure whether you mean 3 or 5 there. 3 is the first one I read and still my favourite. I should have started with that one, really, since there's less prologue.

    Pip was talking to the chickens on his farm earlier. Which isn't to say that they understood or talked back.

    Barrels it is.
