No. Each has its merits. I had actually read Straight Man in print when it was first published. And I enjoyed it again in audio. I suspect that I catch more bits when it is read to me, as I tend to skim a bit when reading myself. Russo is good with language and can set up some funny situations, so being forced to hear all of the words does not hurt.
I'm in academia. Much of this hit a nerve - or a funny bone.
To me, if the narrator is good, I don't notice I'm being read to. I just hear the story. So I'd say he did a good job.
hmm? other than Devereaux? How 'bout the duck?
I'm generally a Russo fan. This is probably my favorite.
