The Born in-Trilogy is one of my favorites thus I also wanted it on my portable device in order to listen to it when I am on my way to work and back. But I was somehow disappointed by the reader. I think he makes Murphy Muldoon sound somewhat dimwitted which I think is a great pitty.
Furthermore I made the mistake of listening to "Fool" by Christopher Moore before where an excellent reader was hired which made the difference even more obvious.
The book is hilarious. Typical Moore-like dialogues which are the more funny in the Shakespearian surroundings.
I think the reader is really good - he has a very skilled way of adapting his voice to the charactes in an entertaining way. It is a pleasure to distinguish the characters from each others by recognising the readers change of talking. Great.
