Publisher's Summary

Marco's life as a messenger isn't great, but the work is easy, and he gets retirement pay in 30 years. Little does he know his life teeters on the cusp of change.
When an unusual assignment sends him overseas, he finds himself stranded in foreign lands. Even that wouldn't be so bad if he weren't constantly outrunning pirates, embroiled in international intrigue, and attacked by a hummingbird with an appetite for human brains - that's just the start of his misadventures.
But lurking in the wings is a much greater threat than getting sacked from his job. The fate of an entire civilization may rest upon his scrawny shoulders. In spite of himself and quite by accident, Marco may become the hero he strives not to be.

Hilarious, insightful, and sure to please

As the author of this work, I'm a little hesitant to review it, but I must give credit where it is due: Dr. Elliott Walsh's narration is exceptional.

"The Gullwing Odyssey" is a very funny book, and one with substance. The titular character, Marco Gullwing, is a young man who learns that sometimes the life you seek isn't the life you ought to lead. The moral of the story is to be the best "you" that you can be. Of course, he learns this the hard way while dodging pirates and narrowly escaping with his life.

Dr. Walsh's narration makes the written word come alive. His vocal style is nuanced, crisp, engaging, and enjoyable. It shows that he has a passion for storytelling - he doesn't narrate books, he performs them. The end result is a hilarious, insightful work that is sure to please. Bravo!
