An Englishman is enjoying his dinner at Stephano's, at which he is a regular diner. A man enters quickly, sits at his table, starts eating his food, and hands him a packet underneath the table! So begins Paul Walmsley's acquaintance - and adventures - with American adventurer Joseph H. Parker and his lovely daughter, Eve. (Intro by TriciaG) Note that there is an alternate reading of section 8. Both are excellent renditions, so enjoy either or both of them. (6 hr 19 min)

Great fun and a good listen.

(5 Sterne)

I really liked this novel. Lighthearted and quite the characters. I listen with earplugs and had no problem with sound issues. I would have been disappointed to have missed this book. ,:

Laugh aloud funny

(5 Sterne)

This book is too much fun! The readers range from very very good to superb. I didn't want it to end.

I Enjoyed It

(4 Sterne)

An old-fashioned enjoyable story. I hear the echo the other reviewer mentioned, but it didn't bother me.

Meh

(3,5 Sterne)

The readers all did well, but the book is not up to Oppenheime's usual standard. Too far-fetched.

Very Poorly Read.

(0,5 Sterne)

Another great book ruined by very poor readers...not at all suited to the characters.
