Publisher's Summary

Internationally best-selling author Tim Dorsey's irreverent and hilarious novels starring evil genius Serge A. Storms, lovable psychiatric hospital escapee, zoom along at breakneck speed, delivering laughs and shocks in droves. In Torpedo Juice Serge heads for the Florida Keys, where, curiously enough, he isn't the saltiest nut in the jar. Since it's always a good idea to fly under police radar, Serge figures the Keys are just the place to lie low. Plus, he has two missions to accomplish: re-invent himself and get married, although he hasn't picked the lucky lady yet. But what he doesn't know is that enough serial and spree killers are headed his way to have a parade of psychopaths. Are the Keys big enough for all the lunatics?

    "Comedy Masterpiece"

    The most hilarious book I have ever read.
    The comedy is silent ,it catches you by surprise
    so that you have to go back to read it again.
    Serge is hilarious and his sidekick.
    If you don't have a sense of humor you may miss a lot.
    George wilson is the very best narrator out there.
    Bar None especially in torpedo Juice.
    I will read this again and again which is not
    my usual.

    "Enjoy it"

    This is a chance to take a mental vacation into a world of complicated characters. I enjoyed the book.

    "Walk the dog"

    We all have a little (or a lot) of Serge in us or at least we know someone who could trigger us up to that level. This is a very funny book - read it while walking the dog!

    Story
    "Great story, choppy download"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The chapter headings run into the word before them and make it feel like parts are missing, but the story is so bizarre that without the book to compare to it's impossible to tell.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I always enjoy Serge's antics. He's insane in a fun way and combines genius with murder.


    What does George Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George Wilson keeps the characters alive. He does remarkably well with such a complex narrative.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If the chapters didn't run into one another and if I didn't have the sinking suspicion I was missing the last paragraph or so of some of the chapters, I would have no complaints.

    Story
    "Coleman's back?"
    Where does Torpedo Juice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This may be the best "Serge" book of them all


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    While Serge is my favorite, Coleman ranks right up there, too


    What does George Wilson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This time, he was part of it, too funny


    If you could take any character from Torpedo Juice out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Serge, his mind is amazing!


    Any additional comments?

    A must read, or, as in this case, listen!!

    Story
    "Insanity in the Keys"
    What made the experience of listening to Torpedo Juice the most enjoyable?

    The story was set in and around places that I have been to on vacations.


    What other book might you compare Torpedo Juice to and why?

    Tim Dorsey's books do not compare with any other authors that I have listened to. If I had to pick, I would say Christopher Moore in Lamb, The Stupidest Angel, or the Lust Lizard of Meloncholy Cove. The comparisons are mainly because of the off beat sense of humor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Coleman in the No Name Pub taking dollar bills from the wall.


    If you could rename Torpedo Juice, what would you call it?

    No Name Insanity.


    Any additional comments?

    Pretty good story in retrospect because you don't find out who the bad guy was until the end.

    "I'll stick to Hiassen"

    My problem from the get go is that the book sounded like a Hiassen novel because I have George Wilson's voice stuck in my head as the voice of Hiassen. This did not help me at all because it made it hard for me to get past constantly comparing the two. All I heard was what sounded like a bad Hiassen novel. The similarities in style, satire, setting liberally sprinkled with screw-loose characters made it even harder to get away from constantly comparing the two authors.

    "Eh, not so much"

    This book was a tough listen. I suspect it reads better then it is audible. The broken writing style doesn't translate particularly well into audible, even though he may be writing in a way to emulate the spoken word and thought progression.
    Plus the recording itself was not very good; lots of breathing and other noises in the quiet spaces. Very distracting.

    Story
    "Irritating"

    I couldn't even finish this book so I can't say much about the storyline. The narration was irritating and I found the first few chapters so muddled that I couldn't be bothered continuing. I can't recommend it.
