I listen to Clubbed to Death every other week -- the plot is silly but the writing is as funny and opinionated as in all the series titles, and the perfomance is impeccable.
His characterizations are perfect, his phrasing is perfect, he never emphasizes the wrong word -- he's just wonderful.
As noted, it's a very funny book.
The book is so delightfully read, and the accents so perfectly rendered, that one can listen to it over again and be as amused as one was the first time. Actually, it's better on second hearing because the persona are easier to keep straight.
I never know whether the books in this series are funny despite or because of the reactionary ravings of the author, but they are in any event so funny that even the politically correct might enjoy them. Maybe.
I would never try another book read by Shelly Frasier. The singsong tone, the random emphasis on words that don't need it and omission of emphasis on those that do, not to mention the misreading of the actual words made it difficult to appreciate this fabulously funny book.
