It's very well done. My only gripe is that Cugel sounds a bit more oafish than I had imagined. My impression when I read the book was that Cugel was severely deluded about his intellectual abilities - quite arrogant - but nonetheless a sharp intellect. But the narrator makes him sound more like a Longshoreman with slight speech impediment than a quick-witted but unlucky scammer.
I would still recommend this to anyone. It's a riveting listen for a raod journey.
The writing is great no matter who reads it. Vance is a unique voice in 20th C American literature.
The wrong voice for Cugel, but a great Iocunu.
Great but minor caveats. I feel petty complaining. Morey did a stellar job and kept me listening.
