The author does an amazing job at narrating! The books are silly and fun, and thoroughly enjoyable
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I really enjoyed this book as the characters are so engaging with the central figures of Pooley & Omally as likeable lay abouts. The presence of Professor Slocombe and Neville the part time man.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Brentford Triangle?
I enjoy the whole story arc as the plot develops and as with most of Rankin's work the journey itself is part of the pleasure rather than just a means to getting to the climax.
Which character – as performed by Robert Rankin – was your favourite?
He does all the characters well but Pooley really does come across well.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I did it hour to hour and a half stints. It would be possible to listen all the way through but I just don't have a block of 8 hours of peace to do it.
Any additional comments?
The works of Rankin are always something I enjoy but the Brentford sagas are the highlight for me. I think 'The Antipope' is the best of all Rankin's book with him as the narrator and some support for the individual characters as this adds a bit of texture to the whole thing. However I always find it a pleasure to listen to Rankin's narration and prefer this massively to the Brightonomican.

Robert brilliantly conveys his writings to spoken word. A worthy listen for new and old fans alike.
