I just plain loved this book
Would you consider the audio edition of The Rhesus Chart to be better than the print version?
Gideon Emery's performance is a major component of the book and it is a bit hard to imagine the book being quite as enjoyable on paper without him.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rhesus Chart?
The book is among the funniest of the Laundry Files series, and very well plotted. For a funny book, however, the ending is surprisingly affecting, deep, and serious. In the best possible way, I mean.
What does Gideon Emery bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Every time Mr. Emery pronounces the name "Angleton" I can't suppress a smile. He is the perfect reader for this series.
Any additional comments?
I wouldn't recommend starting the series with this book, but it is probably my favorite so far. The comedy is refined and funny, but the ending kicks like a mule and left me in a kind of stunned silence for a good half hour. The ending was earned with every word on the way out though...and I appreciate a surprise that after a bit of thought doesn't seem like a surprise.

Hooray! Back to The Laundry!
Yes, I can understand why some people said they didn't like it as much as the first one, and so on. But it's still a good yarn. And Gideon Emery is great. Sounds more like it IS Bob Howard, rather than a narrator. I used to be a science fiction fiend when I was young. These days, I have great difficulty finding a worthwhile story and am considering just giving up on the genre. From that disappointed background, I have enjoyed this series, and hope there will be more.
