Editorial Reviews

Narrator Dino Marnika eases himself into another Les Norton story, and listeners will welcome his familiar, breezy performance. This time around, Les has just put in $50,000 into Gull's movie, figuring he'd become the next Sam Goldwyn. Instead, he finds himself accused of sabotaging the production with a bomb, and next thing he knows, he's on the run from the law. Marnika handles the outsized characters - including Satanists, drug dealers, poets, and DJs - with aplomb, never rushing through the story but keeping its pace tight as Les tries to clear his name.

Publisher's Summary

Les Norton is back!Les figured by tossing $50,000 into the Gull's movie he'd become the next Sam Goldwyn. Only someone put a bomb on the film set. And who gets the blame? Now Norton's a fugitive from the law, desperate to prove his innocence. Satanists, drug dealers, nutty poets, blabbermouth disc jockeys - everybody between Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and South Australia wants a piece of Les Norton. So what are Norton's chances of clearing his name and coming up smelling of roses? VFO. But rely on Les to come up smelling of something.

It's Les Norton in trouble (again) but with the usual amount of luck comes up smelling like roses

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Les's look at South Australia but the ending was like Barrett had run out of time and had to think of an ending quickly.

What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?

I like this narrators reading of the book.

Was Leaving Bondi worth the listening time?

I will listen again but not often
