Publisher's Summary

No matter what the options are, Mike, a rough-tongued, reclusive southerner, with little patience for people, would rather be fishing. Every time he puts his hand on his rod, the phone rings with a new job to exterminate a monster. Rather Be Fishing follows Mike on nine such delays as he battles a range of challenging creatures. His clients find themselves plagued by everything from well-known foes like vampires and werewolves to more rare nuisances like moss men and chupacabra. Adding to his headaches are the not-so-supernatural clients he needs to deal with in order to get a free day on the lake.

Rather be fishing

Well written, and a lot of fun to listen to. It would be easy for a book like this to quickly become boring, but it doesn't. Mike is a character you like, and often forget that he isn't real. When a writer can do that, that's pure talent, and I hope we get see more of Mike's adventures soon.

Hysterica Characters, Great Paranormal Adventure

What made the experience of listening to Rather Be Fishing the most enjoyable?

Oh my gosh, this book is a riot! I took this book with me on my walks, and my entire neighborhood must think I'm nuts, watching me walking down the street laughing my head off! What makes it so funny is the commentary from the main character who really is quite the character. That's not to say this book is all laughs, there are some scary scenes as well. Some of the monsters he's hunting nearly get the best of him a few times and this leads to a few tense situations. Great stories, hysterical commentary and strong characterization puts this on my list as one of my favorite repeat reads.The narrator was so perfect. He really sold this book

What other book might you compare Rather Be Fishing to and why?

It's really a unique, one of a kind.

Which character – as performed by Nathan Glondys – was your favorite?

Main character. So funny! Love his observations

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Mostly it was the main character's commentary.

Any additional comments?

I'd highly recommend this book on a car trip, it's light mood and engaging episodes could brighten up the dullest moments. I'll take it with on my next long trip.
