As a PJ admirer, I read this collection of old articles plus witty funny author's notes, years ago. The audiobook version is just PATHETIC, I am asking for a refund: the audio quality is so bad is it unbearable, impossible to listen. It is obviously a cassette tape remastered, and a bad job at it, anyway. First time I got screwed by Audible, after hundred of great books.
A New Zealander with a wide range of tastes in books. Very fond of humour and now learning things (such as astronomy and physics) that I found boring in school over 30 years ago. Seriously keen on classic mysteries, especially locked room mysteries (you know, the ones you can't get anymore).
This one is not PJ at his best overall (and I am a confirmed fan). The earlier stuff is dated but the fishing and hunting are hilarious. Definitely worth a listen, though
As a long-time fan, I was happy to see more titles form PJ, and while I enjoyed the content (yes, the hunting, fishing and automotive pieces are gems), the whole experience was marred a bit by the poor audio recording.
Congratulations Audible! This 6 hour audio of P J o'Rourke's satire is excellent. It is extremely funny, sometimes even sad and educational. I feel enriched by this download and already listened to it twice while driving.
