So, I Read This Book Today . . .
As a culture, we are always looking for the next best thing. Computers, cars, you name it. And, of course, books. Everything from urban fantasy to suspense, young adult to horror. Sometimes, though, what is New isn’t what we really need. Instead, what is Old is new again, or rather, it should be!
I just listened to Another Fine Myth by Robert Asprin, and narrated by Noah Michael Levine. First printed in 1978, I found the series way back then, and have the whole collection in paper. Recently, however, the books have come out on Audible.com and, of course, I have to buy them all again. How can I help it? Noah Michael Levine does an amazing job of narrating! His voice and cadence are absolutely perfect for the reading. His grasp of accents is amazing, and he really brings the characters to life. I spent all night last night in my workroom, working on holiday gifts, and though I got really tired about 4AM, I couldn’t tear myself away. There is a sample reading on Audible, check it out and you will love it too!
Why SHOULDN’T Robert Lynn Asprin’s Skeeve be the next Harry Potter?! It’s all there. Witches, Demons, and Wizards, Oh, My! And the Myth series is FUNNY. Like, burst out laughing on the airplane funny. And the voices by Noah take the laugh-out-loud character to a whole new level of laughter.
Skeeve, the main character of the series, is an apprentice wizard. He doesn’t really care all that much about being an apprentice wizard, of course. He was previously a thief, who got busted by the Wizard he was trying to rob. Instead of turning him into a frog, or something just as icky, the Wizard makes Skeeve an apprentice wizard. What are ya gonna do?
During the summoning of the Demon Aahz, an Assassin comes to call – and that is when things get rather messy. When the Wizard is killed, Skeeve is stuck now with the Demon Aahz, summoned from his own world, and none too happy about it. What follows? Well, you will just have to read the book to find out! Or rather, I would actually listen to it. You will NOT be disappointed if you like funny, well paced, creative and wonderful story lines.
Yes - I read these books when I was younger and have enjoyed listening to them.
Very much a lead-on from the first book. If you liked the first book you'll like the second.
I adore these books and these characters!
the one big frustration with the audibles is the narrator can't seem to decide if the lead female character's name is pronounced Tan-duh or Tahn-duh ... which both aggravates and boggles the mind!
Some of the characters don't sound the way I've always imagined ... but, that's the risk of listening to an audible after you've read the physical book :)
he is one of the most talented of the readers I have heard lately.
I am on book 17 all have been a treat. fresh and mind teasing. gives the mind a rest from blood and guts. I am so glad you got this seres.
