I have not read the print version.
The story is clever and fun. Howard's sarcasm and pointed quips are brilliant.
I loved Johannes Cabal: Necromancer so much better, but only because Christopher Cazenove is a much more enthusiastic reader, who knows exactly how to get Howard's idiom across. Robin Sachs seems to be much less interested in the story, and the bits of sarcastic undertones are not expressed the way, I believe, Howard means them to be.
Mr. Sachs is a wonderful reader, but not for this book. I hope that Howard's third book, "Fear Institute," brings back Christopher Cazenove.
I found myself laughing aloud as I did with the first book -- something I rarely do.
I was thoroughly delighted with these two books, and I am looking forward to reading the third.
