Intellectual Bookshop

I was in Foyles yesterday.  While I was browsing the computing books I overheard the end of a discussion between two shop assistants.  It went something like this:

1st Assistant: "And then he read a bit from Paradise Lost.  It was awful!"

2nd Assistant: "I know.  Have you heard his reading of Under Milk Wood?" 

Here the 2nd Assistant mumbled a few lines in a strong Welsh accent.

1st Assistant: "These poets must have their own idea of how good their voice sounds which differs completely from how it sounds to every one else."

And this was in the computing section.
