The characters are witty, finely tuned, and well up to the task of taking from the tragic sacriface of the original tavern through the events that destroyed Mary's Place. It was in the final moments of the title when Spider himself is speaking the credits does he identify himself, and what a gestalt that was. The creator himself was for whom Brett Whitener stepped aside.
Thank you Audible, and thank you Spider. It isn't often that an author can pull off the reading of their own title as you have. If you enjoy Callahan's Crosstime Saloon, you'll enjoy this, but do yourself a favor and read the titles in cronological order. He's not kidding when he says it takes three books to explain the history of Mike Callahan and his former bar, lucky for us those three books are available in an omnibus edition here on Audible. Although Barrett Whitener is excellent as narrator of the other books in this series, it was really enjoyable to hear the author narrate one of his own book.
To hear some of the voices, songs, and puns as the originator had envisioned them added another dimension to all the books. You can't go wrong with Spider Robinson's Callahan Series. This one is especially good. It is sort of a Canterbury Tales of Callahan's.
I have to warn the listener, it is definitely R rated due to sexual content. The Callahan series is about drinking. Since I don't drink, and kind of wish others wouldn't, either, I have curmudgeonly docked a star from my rating of this audiobook. But I have to admit the whole series does make me laugh. It gets a bit smarmy when it starts describing how all the tavern's patrons love each other so much that they can mind-meld, a la Vulcan.
- An Assessment of Air Force Data on Contract Expenditures.
- The Role of SDN in Broadband Networks!
- A handbook of comparative social policy.
And why did we have to listen to a child-birth during the height of the adventure? I had to dock another star for that bit of gratuitous mush. Like I said: curmudgeonly. All the same, I would recommend the Callahan series to anyone who enjoys outlandish and funny science fiction. And Spider Robinson does an excellent job of reading his own book. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Funny and good action. There's always a twist. Who was your favorite character and why? How does this one compare? All the Callahan's stories are great. I think that's all that's available audible.
Didn't like the Lady's books were as good, and I've read a few of his other stories that were stinkers. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? It made me laugh a lot that what it was written for. Major character death's made me very sad. I didn't cry much, but I rarely cry at a book. This one was written for humor anyway. Any additional comments? Not really, except if you like the first one, the quality is consistent and you'll probably like 'em all.
There are so many puns, palindromes and lyrics I could hardly keep up!
