These guys roll their eyes more than teenage girls--the only major flaw in the writing.
Not as funny as Sedaris. Not as original as Roth. Not as disturbing as K. Dunn (Geek Love). Overall, however, an entertaining diversion from post 9/11 provincialism.
If you first listened to "Torpedo Juice" narrated by George Wilson, as I did, then you, too, probably looked forward to Dorsey's other funnies. Unfortunately, Wyman takes the silly, but amusing, author's work over the top and into insufferable cartoonish juvenile fiction. His screaming and animations do not compensate for vocal and pacing limitations. Many times one cannot tell when he switches from one to another character and has only a few voices in his entire repertoire.
George Wilson, bringing a relaxed, almost deadpan, reader to the superior (original?) author of this genre, Carl Hiaasen, has us rolling on the floor.
Sadly, the loss of George Wilson and use of Wyman has us searching elsewhere for our Hiaasenish audio book fix. Any suggestions? In the meantime, I'll read Dorsey in print.
