I loved the humor, but also that the protagonists weren't just wacky people, but wacky people with a heart toward conservation.
I like all of Hiaasen's books. Skinny Dip, Hoot. They are all enjoyable listens.
Funny, quick, and did I say funny?
The dad, Anansi. My father in law is Jamaican and his sense of humor is spot on.
I have never listened to Lenny Henry as a reader but I did enjoy his series--Chef.
This is among one of the best that I have listened to. The others would be The Dresden series.
I love the part where they all travel into the west to find...nothing. But I do like how Jezal becomes a better man and Logen tries to become someone else than "The Bloody Nine" Overall, hands down though my favorite character is Glockta. Damaged goods? Yes. But funny.
He is a master reader.
It is epic story with lotsa swords and blood but also funny and insightful.
I would definitely rec this book. The characters are funny and develop more and more over the series of the books. A good epic series!
I love his voices. You can easily tell one character from the other
I listen in the car as I drive to work...very slowly.... : )
I really did try to listen to the whole story, but I just couldn't do it. It was too painful. I really try to finish all books I read or listen to, but this reader was just awful. Most of his adult characters sounded the same and not in a good way. Sort of reminded me of what a Barney (the purple dinosaur) family reunion would sound like. It is insulting to kids! I will probably read this book on my own but I will never listen to another story done by this reader!
