What's more frustrating, the narrator or the story? The narrator is excellent at caricatures, like your embarrassing great uncle after a few drinks. ..Show More » Her Scottish accent mostly sounds like the Simpsons' Groundskeeper Willie, except when it slips into Lucky Charms Irish. The one gay character lisps and sounds like Big Gay Al on South Park. It is really, really grating.

Her stories are just so interesting to me and I love her humor! I read without thinking to about character development , plot line, and literary stuff. I just enjoy a good story and that is what I find in this series and every other series by this author. It makes me smile and that is all I need from a book. I am simple that way and usually easy to please with a good story. Also, I just have to add that I love the character Gilley and I adore the way the narrator does his voice. It's as adorable as he is in the book.
