Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Yes, enjoyable nonsense with a wild plot which is impossible to second-guess. Not an ounce of seriousness and an easy listen - you don't have to concentrate very hard because it doesn't make much sense anyway. The writing can be a bit overly ridiculous and self-aware sometimes, which can irritate a bit, but fans are used to this. Trips along nicely and you certainly won't be bored!
Would you listen to another book narrated by Robert Rankin?
Generally I love books narrated by their authors as they know exactly where to emphasise, pause, inject humour or drama and so on. This is well narrated as you would expect, voices, drama etc are good; however it took me perhaps quarter of the book to get used to the many pauses and slightly puzzled voice he uses throughout - it irritates me a little but not so much as to put me off listening to another book.
Any additional comments?
An enjoyable light-hearted nonsensical fun story, perfect for summer!
