    "Some Genuine Laughs"

    I wanted a bit of light humour, so I thought I'd give this book a try. I've been leery of dramatised books, but this title proves that they have merit.

    I like this type of humour. I could describe it as "audio slapstick". Some moments are sheer non sequitur, which unbalances my train of thought and causes some sharp laughs. The accents are engaging. I'm reminded of The Maltese Falcon and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The half-hour format is useful, as I can listen to one on my way to work and when I go home, I'm not picking up in the middle of anything.

    Overall, an unexpected pleasure.

    "A knight in dull armor!"

    I found this series of half-hour radio shows quite entertaining! We follow our semi-clever private-eye through a number of misadventures calculated to deliver lots of gags, one-liners, and puns. Many are funny, though most are just "smilers", and a few are (I think) overdone. There's enough of a plot too provide a sense of continuity throughout, but it's not particularly credible. But then again, who cares when you're laughing?

    "Delightfully flaky"

    I had no idea what to expect when I purchased this title. I hoped for a good detective story. I got a hardboiled detective with puns galore, terrific casting and more than a few laugh-out-loud moments. If you like both Miss Marple and Monty Python, this one's for you.

    "Great radio show!"

    Take Sam Spade and mix in some Kenneth Horne and you get Garson Krebs. This is a great radio show. I highly recommend those fond of old British radio farce shows to get Garson Krebs, Private Eye!

    "silly fun"

    I've listened to this a couple times now as the stories are 1/2 hour segments and they're nice little time fillers. it's a goofy word play & pun Naked Gun style private eye radio drama with sound effects & voices and at times something strikes me as so silly I laugh out loud. the first stories are the best perhaps, at least for me. some get a little too silly and there are running gags through the stories that maybe went on too long, but I laughed again and the sound effects of the fights are hilarious.
