Mame fans should love this fix

A good sequel for those who enjoyed the first book (or the film version). Some of their adventures I found a bit flat (Biarritz), and others dark (Venice), but overall the story worked fine for me; although, the first couple of chapters in Paris and London were stronger, with the rest seeming more . . . slapstick or formulaic.

Narrator manages solid voices for Patrick and Mame, as well as the many secondary characters.

Narrator was wonderful.

I love reading this book. Listening to this hilarious narrator made even better. Didn't want it to end.
