Light hearted

What made the experience of listening to McNally's Caper the most enjoyable?

Every now and then you need and easy listen that holds your interest and makes you laugh out loud. And if you are like me you may even learn a new word or two.

Any additional comments?

I love this series. I listen to a lot of serious stuff so about once a month I want just a fun book. Entertaining from start to finish.

Um, This One Drags A Little

Archey McNally's a time traveler. A kind of sojourner. No… no… He's the mind that time forgot. Somehow Archey's in a 1940-1950's bubble of culture while computers, cell phones, and rock and roll clamor all around him. He kind of channels both Nick and Nora Charles. Never heard of them? Uh-huh, that's sort of my point.
.
It's the sex predator women in the McNally books who prey on Archey and grab your attention with the instant familiarity which they grab onto Archey's not-so-private parts. Every one of them's "wicked" in the old-time sense but screw-ball correct in the way-above-the-middle-class whirled and whirlings where Archie makes discrete inquiries into every sort of zany indiscretion.
.
And while "Caper" is typical Archie… His 'typical' drags a little with this plot. Still, "Caper" was a perfect companion for a 500 mile ride to a vacation week. Just as Sander's next McNally, "Trial" will be on the way back.
.
Archie McNally is made to fill in life's boring holes – then disappear without leaving even a bump in your memory.
.
Oh Victor Bevine is a terrific actor keeping the zany cast separate, distinct, and just as dramatic as they need to be. I totally enjoy Consuela's devastating voice. Thanks to Bevine, she's worth the price of the books.

Love all the McNally Books!

Long ago before digital, we bought the whole series on cassette tape. The whole family loved to listen to the light hearted and funny capers of Archie and friends on our road trips. We are now revisiting them through Audible and enjoying them again!
