Even a great author can have an off day

I've read a number of the Monsieur Pamplemousse mysteries, and have found them to be fun, witty, and farcical. But I felt like this one never really took off. The characters are the same lovable creatures. Once again, Pamplemousse must rescue his boss from a disaster of his own making. All of the elements are there, but the story never really gels this time. If you are a first-time reader of this series, I'd suggest starting with a different book. Bill Wallis did a fine job of narration as he has done on the previous books.

I sincerely hope that Audible is able to add some of the earlier books in this series. They are highly entertaining. I worry that this one might put listeners off of an otherwise entertaining series.

Such a Disapointment

I've listened to about three hours of this book so far and a plot has yet to take shape. The only thing Pamplemousse has done so far is liten to mostly is boss as well as a few coworkers yammer on about unrelated topics. I suspect that the topics become connected later on, but I'm not sticking around to find out. Pamplemousse is a bore, his boss is a moran and the dog hardly does anything at all. Zzzzzz.
