A story that was not excessive stupidity and poor humor, line after line, minute and hour after hour. Some quirky humor is appreciated, but not non-stop. It gets boring.
Not the genre, but maybe the author.
Good inflection, good timing.
I doubt I will think about Tampa the same.
Oh my God!
"Memoirs of a diseased mind"
If Quentin Tarantino was an insane genetic scientist instead of a film maker; he would have combined the DNA of Gary Larson and Jonathan Winters and produced Tim Dorsey from a laboratory.
I think it's safe to assume mental illness runs in the family. No one in their right minds could come up with this sh**!
I loved it!
Absolutely! I've gone back through chapters already as I missed some of the dry humor. This book caught me laughing out loud in the airport.
All the characters stood out. Serge was the leader.
Yes although the voices weren't believable to the characters
I know there has to be someone out there who thinks this book is funny or clever, but it's nobody I know.
Maybe the new Margaret Atwood.
Say something about yourself!
As funny as 'The Help' and 'Bossy Pants' but in a different way and among the funniest things I've ever heard.
Visiting Tampa Bay Motors for a Suburban. I felt his pain.
The first but not the last of his performances in my experience.
It is such a mad book... it had me in stitches!
Tes, but I made it last to travel to work.
I have just bought another Tom Dorsey audible book :)
This is an average Dorsey read. The first three hours of the book could be eliminated or condensed down to fifteen minutes and wasn’t really relevant to the main stories in the book. Again, it’s something to read if you want to get through all of the “Serge” series, but save this one for the bottom of the list.
definitely not anything by tim dorsey
all of them
i want the time wasted listening to this book back
A so-so story, though the narrator did a pretty good job. The references to local Tampa is great fun. But probably won't follow the series.
I have listened to probably three Dorsey books, all Serge Storms novels. The others had a different narrator. The other narrator reads Serge as though he is jazzed on caffeine (or other chemicals) all of the time. This narrator is fine, but probably since I started out hearing Serge in the other voice, I like the other narrator better. This novel felt like it was a first novel published after his later work sold. Don't know if that's true. Felt like the first half of the novel was developing the characters, with Serge's sidekick Coleman more as the central character. Only after he sort of shifts focus more to Serge does the story take off. Not as good as the other Serge Storms stories, but still ok.
