I love this author and the performance was great. Only problem is, I just can't get over the Joe Peschi voice of Serge.
I happen to enjoy this series...it is not going to expand your mind but somehow the story and characters soothe me like a comfortable pair of shoes. Nothing new here from the previous 20 but if you enjoy the series, you will enjoy 21. Same book different number.
Like I said, I happen to enjoy the series and will continue to look forward to 22.
I read it in the early 80's and still read it over
This is a fun listen. Sadly the author died after writing this. The main character is so well fleshed out I thought it was based on the author. I looked up the author and he is nothing like his character. For years my father and I debated who would play Ignatious. Not just famous actors but stranger too. ...."he would make a good Ignacious".
I love writers like Carl Hiasson, Dave Barry and Tom Dorsey. I always hate to compare authors but this book satisfies my need for that genre. Wil Whaton's reading was a pleasant surprise, I bought the book on someone's recommendation thus I pass it on to you,
How could you not love a series with characters named "Vampire Bill". Even some old college mates love this book. I would have thought them too "highbrow".
If you are not sure if you are going to like this series, start with this book for a taste.
BTW- narration is outstanding.
I was surprised that this was written before the guide to the Galaxy series. If you liked that series you will like its original inspiration.
Some of the reviews say the series is getting old…wall yes but I still enjoy the series. It is predictable but I love it just for the fun of it. So if you mind the same story told again and again but love the series, give it a listen. I think if I were reading the book I would have given up long ago but Loreli King does a great job.
Short but it was just what I wanted on this hot day. Period piece.
Fun listen in its genre. If you like this genre, you will enjoy this.
Make Serge's voice stronger. His voice makes him sound resistible, not irresistible as I picture him.
I liked everything except the portrayal of Serge. Otherwise, I liked him
