Publisher's Summary

Retief, the somewhat reluctant diplomat, does not always follow what his superiors define as "proper procedure". His suave and sardonic approach to intergalactic maneuvering and his attempts to smooth over the bumblings of his other diplomats is documented in this funny story. Keith Laumer adds another delightful episode in Retief's career here.

The Yillian Way

Phil Chenevert is ABSOLUTELY horrendous, was he drunk or high or both?? I have every book in the Retief series, and this drunken drug addict, has ruined it. I could barely get through 40 seconds, let alone 40 minutes, he has NO timing, and NO understanding of punctuation, horrible, horrible narrator, I'm deleting this abomination, and demanding my money back.

Love the Retief series, bad choice of reader

Would you listen to The Yillian Way again? Why?

Yes, I really like Laumers Retief series

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Bad choice for narrator. Voice COMPLETELY wrong for ANY Retief story.

Any additional comments?

I really hope to hear many more adaptations. I really, really hope to hear it in another voice.
