    Ballad of the Whiskey Robber tells the hilarious and improbable true story of Attila Ambrus, the Robin Hood of Eastern Europe. He's the onetime pelt smugger, goaltender (possibly the worst in the history of pro hockey), pen salesman, Zamboni driver, gravedigger, church painter, roulette addict, building superintendent, whiskey drinker, and native of Transylvania who's decided that the best thing to do with his time is to rob as many banks as possible.

    S. Hawkins says: "Fantastic"
    "great narration with flaws"
    Overall

    I'm about halfway through the book and I love the way it's narrated with different actors and short segments of music in between.

    However, while the acting and narration is good, the fake hungarian accents are distracting (and sound more russian than hungarian).
    Most importantly, all the hungarian words in the book (there are many!!!) are pronounced wrong. It would have been nice to have a narrator who either learns how to pronounce the words he's reading or someone who already knows how to pronounce them.

    Overall, I still highly recommend this audiobook!
