This is one of those books that you'll read and never forget. Smartly written comedy with twists, delightful foreshadowing and an outcome that will please and surprise you in spite of itself! Enjoy! I definitely did!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

see the first review. yes. and more. this is the princess bride of audio. I rotate it in my audiobook list for times when i have the flu, feel down or just need to entertain someone for a long, long car trip or just can't find anything worth listening to... it's a classic and the performance is just bust out fantastic - Frederick Davidson is a troupe of giddiness all on on his own. think of it as a great theatre experience minus the uncomfortable seat. it's a period piece, a classic romp.. chock full of sarcasm, wry humor, clever language, silliness, a bit of romance, some adventure - seriously. it's just fun. i'd like to recommend the print version but although i'm buying it for my sister (nonlistener - like most siblings) but i can't imagine it coming close to this performance. get it. if you don't like it, we can never be friends.Was this review helpful?

I had just finished Connie Willis's classic "To Say Nothing of the Dog" and was looking for another well-written, humorous and offbeat book. I saw this in the list of other books purchased by those who enjoyed the Willis book. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, the narrative style, and the construction of this novel. The narration was wonderful, too! It's just a little too bawdy for me to comfortably share with my thirteen-year-old yet, but I loved every tongue-in-cheek minute of it. (I also am a big fan of Jasper Fforde, Douglas Adams, Dickens, Shakespeare, Terry Pratchett and satire in general.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
