    New York Times best-selling author Alan Dean Foster delivers the eagerly awaited new Pip and Flinx novel featuring a certain twenty-four-year-old with red hair, growing powers, and a loyal sidekick who just happens to be a flying mini-dragon. Sure to delight longtime fans and win new ones, Flinx's Folly follows Flinx on a thrilling quest to unravel the mysteries of his mind and body. It is a quest that forces him to confront a horror almost beyond human comprehension.

    Overall

    This is my eighth purchase in the Pip and Flinx series. Up till now I have enjoyed the books and the narrator. I think Rudnicki has done a great job, but this book was terribly produced. I though other reviewer comments about the sneezing and sniffing were perhaps exaggerated, but no, they were exactly right. The narrator would be moving right along and then out of nowhere this LOUD noise would burst through my headset. This should have been caught and corrected in post production. How difficult would it have been to mute the sneezes or sniffs? This is something I would have expected from a source like librivox, but for a commercial audio book. I am very disappointed.

    Secondly, and this is more of a pet peeve, an author such as Foster with a demonstrated command of the English language should know better then to use "irregardless" in his book. Moreover, the publisher should have never let that through, unless they are taking a linguistic approach and are attempting to validate a new word through its use.
