    In this edition, we hear, translated into modern English, 20-some tales, told in the voices of knight and merchant, wife and miller, squire and nun, and many more. Some are bawdy, some spiritual, some romantic, some mysterious, some chivalrous. Between the stories, the travelers converse, joke, and argue, revealing much about their individual outlooks upon life as well as what life was like in late 14th-century England.

    Tad Davis says: "Many voices, at times enthralling"
    "Marvelous, marvelous!"
    Overall

    ALWAYS compelling. The verse is a joy to hear. In addition, Chaucer's crude, vulgar passages are uproarious! I WILL admit, however, that the Parson's tale, tho interesting, is a pain-in-the-ass to listen to (and I'm sure his fellow pilgrims probably agreed!). Overall, quite a treat!

    I could not finish this.
    Or, more properly, I didn???t WANT to finish this.
    It seemed just a bunch of vague, faceless, undeveloped, unknown wooden characters engaged in fantasy-style battles, all going nowhere in particular. In all fairness, I probably should have started with the first book of the series. On the other hand, this author is obviously a Tolkien wannabe, but fails to come even close to that master's achievement. Besides, his attempts at imitation reveal his weakness. Oh, I guess I may eventually start again with the first book, but I doubt it.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    colleen says: "I loved it!"
    "Very little better than silly."
    Overall

    ...AND... I'm sick and tired hearing about "Beta-type males". Why doesn't the author just take his crappy bourgeois labeling and go for a long walk off a short pier?!
