So happy all of the Bo Tully books are here now. I read them once before but I'm super happy to have them on Audible now.
I have been repeatedly disappointed in McManus's Bo Tully series. His book,The Blight Way, was probably the best as it had an excellent narrator who brought the humor in the story to life. I can barely listen to the raspy voice of the current narrator who does not capture the stories characters or their humour. I can handle a bad narrator though if the story is good. Correction: if the story is good but is not filled end to end to with sexual innuendoes. I don't mind attraction between two single people, but the endless sexually implied comments and actions between Bo Tully and a married woman smacks of indecency and does not add an ounce to the type of story this is. We have laughed ourselves sick at Pat's earlier short story books- "Never Sniff A Gift Fish" etc... My 13 year old says he reads one of those stories every night before bed! However, the extent of the sexual and indecent insinuations in these books is to the point where I won't allow my kids to listen to them. A little bit is one thing. Especially in the bounds of a decent relationship. But when it is outright bordering on illicit relationships I draw the line. My respect for McManus and his writing has dropped which is really disappointing because he was a childhood "hero" to me and my friends and now he appears to be just a typical writer inflicted with the current obsession with sex. You write a great mystery, Mr. McManus- just leave out the extra stuff and you will have some serious winners again!!! #loveagoodoutdoorstorybellylaugh
