Headlong Hall is the first novel by Thomas Love Peacock, published in 1815 (dated 1816). As in his later novel Crotchet Castle, Peacock assembles a group of eccentrics, each with a single monomaniacal obsession, and derives humor and social satire from their various interactions and conversations. The setting is the country estate of Squire Harry Headlong Ap-Rhaiader, Esq. in Wales. (Summary by Wikipedia)

I just couldn't get interested in this book. The volunteers do a great job as always, this just isn't my type of humor. I made it through chapter 5 and found it very boring. But if this is your type of humor you will probably enjoy because cast is excellent in their readings.
